Vegetable Pot Pie with Parmesan-Black Pepper Biscuits
This recipe offers a couple of fun twists. It’s a completely vegetarian take on the usual chicken pot pie, one that’s just as good as the traditional poultry version. And it all happens in the slow cooker, including the cooking of the fluffy biscuit topping. Fresh chives, lots of black pepper, and Parmesan cheese contribute tremendous flavor to the topping; you can use chopped green onions in place of chives if that’s what you have on hand. And do grind the pepper fresh from a pepper mill; it will have a much fresher and sharper flavor than preground black pepper.
