Vegetable Potpies


  • 1 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 ½ cups sliced wild mushrooms
  • 2 small carrots, sliced into ¼-inch pieces
  • 1 small parsnip, sliced into ½-inch pieces
  • 2 cups butternut squash, cut into ¾ –inch cubes
  • 1 tsp. finely chopped rosemary
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • ¾ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tsp. all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup 2 percent milk
  • 1/3 cup frozen baby peas
  • 4 slices thin whole wheat sandwich bread, crusts trimmed
  • 4 tsp. freshly grated Parmesan
  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the broiler. Melt 2 tsp. butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, mushrooms, carrots, parsnip, butternut squash and rosemary; season lightly with salt and pepper. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until just soft, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until vegetables are tender and liquid is nearly evaporated, about 5 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk flour into milk. Add to skillet. Bring to a boil and simmer until thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir in peas and season again with salt and pepper. Divide the mixture among four 1-cup ramekins.
  3. Spread 1 tsp. butter on one side of each slice of bread; sprinkle with parmesan. Arrange bread, buttered side up, over vegetables. Broil 5 minutes, or until tops are golden and filling is bubbling around the edges.
