Servings: portions
Units:
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.

SHUBHRA’S SAUTÉED OKRA WITH ONIONS

Okra, known as “lady’s fingers” in India, has a beautiful bright green color and looks wonderful on the table. This simple and easy way to cook okra will leave you with a delicious dish, without any of the okra “slime!” When buying fresh okra, avoid the flimsy, flexible ones. Look for crisp ones in which the tail end can be snapped off. Avoid the very hard okra that are over-ripe with brown seeds instead of the ideal white seeds. I also never cover okra when cooking because doing so will darken its color. Okra can be eaten with Indian flatbreads, such as Naan or Chapathi, and goes well when paired with lentil dishes. – Shubhra

Instructions
  1. If you’re using frozen okra, do not defrost. If you’re using fresh okra, wash the okra and pat dry with a kitchen towel. Trim the tip and head and discard. Slice each okra into ¼-inch (6-mm) pieces.
  2. Pour the oil into a large nonstick skillet and place over medium heat. (Place over high heat if using frozen okra.) When the oil is heated, add the okra and lime juice. Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the onion, turmeric, red pepper, salt, and black pepper. Stir to combine. Sauté until the okra is tender and the onion becomes transparent, stirring frequently, about 30 minutes.
  4. Enjoy now or let cool to room temperature and refrigerate or freeze for later!
Recipe Notes

Okra has a peculiar, slimly substance to it that is released when the okra is cut and washed. The first time I cooked okra, I washed it after I chopped it and had slime everywhere! That is why it is important to wash it and pat dry before chopping to reduce the release of the sticky material. If you’re using frozen okra, it is best not to defrost it first, as it will become flimsy and release a lot of slimy substance. When okra is cooked with lime juice, any slime disappears as the okra cooks.
