Mushroom cobbler recipe with walnut scones is a delicious slow cooked meal. This dish is perfect for vegetarian looking for comfort food at its finest. Slow cooking is not just great for meat. This mushroom dish creates a rich sauce after hours in the oven for a great winter warmer. Serve with cheesy walnut scones for extra flavour. This recipe serves 4 people and will take around 8hrs to prepare and slow cook to perfection.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 250 g (8 oz) flat mushrooms,
  • peeled and quartered
  • 250 g (8 oz) cup chestnut mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 200 ml (7 fl oz) red wine
  • 400 g (13 oz) can chopped tomatoes
  • 150 ml (1/4 pint) vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon redcurrant jelly
  • 2–3 stems of thyme
  • salt and pepper

Walnut scones:

  • 200 g (7 oz) self-raising flour
  • 50 g (2 oz) butter, diced
  • 50 g (2 oz) walnut pieces, chopped
  • 75 g (3 oz) Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4–5 tablespoons milk

This cobbler would also be great served with fresh steamed vegetables

Method

  1. Preheat the slow cooker if necessary; see the manufacturer’s handbook. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onion, garlic and mushrooms and fry, stirring, for 5 minutes or until just turning golden.
  2. Stir in the flour, then mix in the wine, tomatoes and stock. Add the redcurrant jelly, thyme and salt and pepper and bring to the boil.
  3. Pour into the slow cooker pot, cover with the lid and cook on low for 6–8 hours.
  4. When almost ready to serve, make the topping. Put the flour and butter in a bowl, rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the walnuts, Cheddar and salt and pepper. Add half the egg, then mix in enough milk to make a soft dough.
  5. Knead lightly, then roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface until 2 cm (3/4 inch) thick. Stamp out 8 rounds with a 6 cm (21/2 inch) plain biscuit cutter, re-rolling the trimmings as needed. Stir the mushroom casserole, then arrange the scones, slightly overlapping, around the edge of the dish. Cover with the lid and cook on high for 45 minutes or until well risen.
  6. Lift the pot out of the housing using oven gloves, brush the tops of the scones with the remaining egg and brown under a preheated hot grill, if liked.
