The familiar blend of poultry, vegetables and pastry is a comforting part of American food culture, but traditional versions are not as nourishing as the cozy name implies. Our enlightened potpie uses reduced-fat sour cream to make a rich sauce and tops the filling with scrumptious whole-wheat buttermilk biscuits.

Ingredients

3 tsp canola oil, divided1 cup frozen pearl onions, thawed1 cup peeled baby carrots10 oz cremini mushrooms, halved2 ½ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided¼ cup cornstarch2 ½ cup diced cooked turkey or chicken1 cup frozen peas, thawed¼ cup reduced-fat sour cream¼ tsp salt, or to taste freshly ground pepper to taste¾ cup whole-wheat pastry flour, (see Ingredient Note)¾ cup all-purpose flour2 tsp sugar1 ¼ tsp baking powder½ tsp baking soda½ tsp salt1 tsp dried thyme1 ½ Tbsp cold butter, cut into small pieces1 cup nonfat buttermilk, (see Tip)1 Tbsp canola oil

Directions

  1. To prepare filling: Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onions and carrots; cook, stirring, until golden brown and tender, about 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until browned and their liquid has evaporated, 5 to 7 minutes. Return the onions and carrots to the pan. Add 2 cups broth and bring to a boil; reduce heat to a simmer. Mix cornstarch with the remaining 1/2 cup broth; add to the pan and cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens. Stir in chicken (or turkey), peas, sour cream, salt and pepper. Transfer the filling to a 2-quart baking dish.
  2. To prepare biscuit topping & bake potpie: Preheat oven to 400°F. Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and thyme in a large bowl. Using your fingertips or 2 knives, cut butter into the dry ingredients until crumbly. Add buttermilk and oil; stir until just combined. Drop the dough onto the filling in 6 even portions. Set the baking dish on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake the potpie until the topping is golden and the filling is bubbling, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Tips & Notes

Ingredient Note: Whole-wheat pastry flour is milled from soft wheat. It contains less gluten than regular whole-wheat flour and helps ensure a tender result in delicate baked goods while providing the nutritional benefits of whole grains. Available in large supermarkets and in natural-foods stores. Store in the freezer.

Tip: No buttermilk? You can use buttermilk powder prepared according to package directions. Or make “sour milk”: mix 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk.
