Cherry and peach cobbler are definite favorites of ours during the summer months, but there are also so many delicious veggies that are fresh at the same time, we wanted to see if we could make a savory cobbler. It seems like fruits and berries steal the spotlight when it comes to this delicious, biscuit-topped dish, but let us tell you, this veggie-version more than stands on its own compared to the classic dessert.
Filled mainly with zucchini and summer squash, along with some onion and bell pepper, the filling of this cobbler is thick and creamy and perfectly seasoned. Add to that some tasty Cheddar Bay biscuits on top and you’ve got yourself a well-rounded meal that hits the spot in a major way. Switch things up and try out this cobbler for dinner this week…you won’t be disappointed!
