  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 large leek
  • 5 cloves garlic big ones
  • 500 grams crimini mushrooms
  • 200 millilitres dry red wine
  • 2 Tablespoons Za'atar
  • 500 millilitres mushroom stock
  • 1 Tablespoon corn starch stirred into 100 millilitres cold water
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 200 grams biscuit dough
  • 1 teaspoon egg wash milk, or cream (optional)


  • In a large saute pan over medium heat, sweat the onion and leeks with the salt in the olive oil for 5-7 minutes, until lightly softened.
  • Add the mushrooms and garlic, and cook, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes or until the mushrooms are quite soft.
  • Add the red wine and zaatar to the pan, and cook for 1 minute
  • Add the stock and simmer for 5 minutes
  • Combine the corn starch with some cold water in a small bowl, and add to the mushroom mixture and stir together. Once the mixture comes back to a bubble, taste for seasoning. Add a splash of soy sauce if a bit more salt is needed, remove the pan from the heat and finish by stirring in the butter. 
  • Preheat the oven to 425 F
  • Roll out the biscuit dough to approximately 1-centimetre thickness, and cut out one round for each pot pie
  • Portion the mushroom mixture into individual oven-proof dishes, and top with a round of biscuit dough. 
  • Brush the biscuit top with milk, cream, or egg wash (optional, but good for shine) and bake at 425 F for 20-25 minutes, or until the biscuit is golden brown and the stew is bubbling over. (I like to place my pie dishes onto a rimmed baking sheet to catch any overflow.)
