Prep: 15 mins

Cook: 40 mins

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 pound white mushrooms, halved and sliced
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 10 ounce boxes  thawed frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 14 ounce can  low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup heavy cream, whipped just to stiff peaks
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees . In a large, ovenproof skillet, heat the butter and oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft, 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and 11/2 tsp. salt and cook, stirring, until almost dry, 5 minutes.
  2. Add the peas and carrots. Gradually stir in 1/4 cup flour, then stir in the broth. Simmer, stirring, until smooth and thickened, about 2 minutes. Add the parsley; season with pepper. Bake for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk the remaining 13/4 cups flour, the baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt. Make a well in the center and stir in the whipped cream to combine. Using lightly floured hands, knead just until a dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat out until about 3/4 inch thick. With a floured 3-inch biscuit cutter, cut out 4 biscuits. Transfer them to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until golden, about 15 minutes.
  4. Divide the vegetable mixture among 4 deep bowls. Top each with a biscuit; serve immediately
