Root vegetable cobbler


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Place the vegetables in a large ovenproof dish.
  • Whisk the stock with the cornflour, seasonings and parsley until well combined. Then pour over the top of the vegies and toss well.
  • Place the flour, baking powder and table salt in a large bowl. Add the butter and rub with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Then add the cream and mix well using a wooden spoon. 
  • Gently knead the dough on a lightly floured board and roll out to fit the oven dish. Then place on top of the vegies and cook in the oven for about 1 hour, until the vegies are tender.
