Instructions
  1. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium to high heat. Coat the bottom with olive oil, then add the onion, carrots, and celery and cook until crisp-tender.
  2. Add the lentils, potatoes and chicken or vegetable stock, starting out with about 6 cups. Stir in the wine. Add the bay leaf and thyme. Let come to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook uncovered until lentils are tender and done, about 1 1/2 hours. *Be careful to watch the liquid level and add more stock as needed. Stir occasionally. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. When lentils are done, mash the potatoes against the side of the pan with a spoon then stir them. This will make it creamy. Stir in the turnip and mustard greens. Let come to a boil again, then simmer for about 30 minutes.
  4. Top with a scoop of brown rice and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

We suggest that replacing white rice with brown rice is a healthier option.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Coat an 8-inch casserole dish with vegetable cooking spray.
  3. In heavy saucepan, heat wine over medium-high heat.
  4. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until soft, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add celery, bell pepper, carrot, green beans and peas.
  6. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring often. If mixture begins to dry out, add 1/4 cup more wine.
  7. Reduce heat to low. Sprinkle flour over vegetable mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes.
  8. In glass measuring cup, combine milk or soymilk and 2 cups vegetable stock. Slowly add to vegetable mixture while whisking constantly. Sauce will start to thicken.
  9. Add parsley, soy sauce, thyme, sage, pepper and cayenne. Cook, stirring constantly, until filling is thickened.
  10. Remove from heat, transfer mixture to prepared casserole and set aside.
Biscuit Crust
  1. In large bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
  2. Using a pastry blender or fork, cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal.
  3. In measuring cup, combine buttermilk and honey.
  4. Add liquid to flour mixture, stirring with a fork to form a stiff dough. Add more buttermilk if dough is too dry.
  5. Knead lightly in bowl, 3 to 5 minutes, until dough is no longer sticky.
  6. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Roll out to 10 inch round or roll to 1/2 inch thickness and cut into decorative shapes, wedges or rounds.
  7. Lay biscuit topping lightly over filling..
  8. Bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbling--about 20 to 30 minutes.
  9. Serve steaming hot into bowls and check six veggies off of your list!
Recipe Notes

Try changing up the flavor of the filling, for example, make a curry vegetable pot pie.  The biscuit crust is a low-fat version of a traditional pot-pie topping. Soy milk can replace the buttermilk to make it vegan; however, the crust may end up a
bit heavier.
