Who says cobbler recipes must be sweet? This root vegetable recipe, topped with herbed Parmesan dumplings, is designed to be served as a side. Go ahead, give savory cobblers a spin!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In an ungreased 3-quart baking dish, combine potatoes, rutabaga, carrots, parsnips, onion, and garlic.
In a small bowl, combine broth, fines herbes, salt, and pepper. Pour over vegetables, stirring to coat. Bake, covered, about 1 hour or until vegetables are nearly tender. Carefully uncover vegetables;* stir in semisoft cheese.
Drop Herbed Parmesan Dumplings into 12 mounds on top of hot vegetables. Bake, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes more or until a toothpick inserted in centers of dumplings comes out clean. Let stand for 20 minutes before serving. Makes 12 servings.
Be sure to uncover the vegetables so the steam escapes away from you.
In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, fines herbes, herbes de Provence, or Italian seasoning, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in Parmesan cheese. In a small bowl, combine eggs and milk. Add all at once to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened.
