Crusted Cornmeal Chickpea Potpie


Pies select certainly been appearing on my bill of fare to a greater extent than frequently every bit the temperature shifted from hot to warm to downright chilly. Comfort foods are certainly inward order, peculiarly for the ready who also gets to relish the warmth of the oven as well as the aroma of pie. Apart from the aroma of baked breadstuff or perchance a simmering curry, there's zilch ameliorate to get the appetite as well as convey joy to the kitchen.

I dubiousness I select ever met anyone who didn't relish pie of only about sort, whether sweetness or savory. My personal preference is for the savory diversity as well as I select been cooking as well as baking a few lately. I'm non ane to snub my olfactory organ at a fruit pie either, but my sweetness molar is non what it used to be.

This excursion into the kitchen was inspired yesteryear Joanne who is the cook, lensman as well as hear behind chickpea potpie amongst cornbread crust was only besides much to resist as well as I made it tumble out inward my ain kitchen to portion amongst special others.


I liked the essential ingredients inward the recipe, as well as the cornbread crust was appealing to me because it is easier as well as faster than making pie crust from scratch. I've made a cornmeal-crusted chili, a longtime classic that is somewhat similar amongst a dissimilar filling. My changes to Joanne's recipe were essentially to spice it up, because I tend to create that! The spicing volition hold upwards familiar to cooks that are ever reaching for spices that brand Indian cooking hence unique as well as appealing. Let us telephone call upwards this ane an Indian-style fusion dish. It's quite filling as well as packed amount of autumn vegetables as well as filled out farther amongst buttery soft chickpeas.


Any position out of vegetables that y'all may select inward your pantry or refrigerator crying out for attending could hold upwards included inward the mix, as well as I bet mushrooms would select been nice, along amongst a chip of tomato. Not that I intend the dished lacked anything at all as well as the mixture of vegetables I used along amongst the spices was fifty-fifty ameliorate than expected. This ane pot repast would become good amongst a leafy greenish salad, a side grain dish if y'all wish, or an piece of cake mushroom curry. It was for sure ane of those memorable meals you'll recall fondly as well as hopefully fifty-fifty become far a regular characteristic on the menu. If I had to a greater extent than ramekins on hand, I would select used those instead of the casserole dish method for a one-serving (or two!) extra special presentation for diners, but no matter, because this is ane nourishing repast that I know volition hold upwards a characteristic on the bill of fare inward my kitchen often.

As ever suit the spicing according to your taste. I create similar things hot but if y'all are used to spicy food, I don't intend the measurements hither volition overwhelm your estrus meter.
