Vegan Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler

Posted by on


It's been ages since I've posted a recipe, but today I have a recipe & a video as well! While in Portland, I was lucky enough to hang out with Julie Hasson & tape a segment for Everyday Dish TV. I've been watching her show & reading her blog for quite some time, so I was thrilled to be invited on. I decided to make a dish that's easy to make & perfect for your current Farmers Market bounty, a Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler!

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

For the Filling:
In an oven-safe, deep skillet, mix together sugar and cornstarch. Add the rhubarb and strawberries, mixing until coated. Add a pinch of salt, maple syrup & mix well.

Step 3

Place the skillet on the stove top over medium heat, and bring to a simmer. If necessary, reduce heat slightly to maintain simmer. Let fruit cook until glossy and thickened, stirring as needed, about 10 minutes.

Step 4

For the Biscuits:
In a large mixing bowl, add flour and Earth Balance. Using a pastry blender, cut margarine into the flour in pea-sized pieces.

Step 5

Gently stir in sugar, baking soda, and salt. Add vanilla. Gradually add ice water, a tablespoon at a time, mixing until dough comes together.

Step 6

Shape the dough into a log, and break into 8 to 10 pieces.
Form small, flat biscuits and place them evenly over the top of the bubbling fruit.

Step 7

Transfer skillet to the preheated oven. If you do not have an oven-safe skillet, cast iron pot, or pan, transfer your filling into a 9x13 pan, placing the biscuits on top.

Step 8

Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until center is firm and biscuits are golden. Let it cool & thicken before serving, then enjoy!
