Gluten-Free Tomato Cobbler with Corn Flour Biscuits makes for savory side dish or a vegetarian main course. An easy tomato cobbler recipe that is vegan too!
Savory cobblers often get overshadowed by cobblers of the sweet variety, but when it comes to this easy tomato cobbler, I’m all in.
This little cast iron recipe can be made as a side dish or a simple vegetarian main course. Using cherry tomatoes, onions, garlic, and a few spices, the tomato filling is juicy and flavorful and a compliment to the slightly sweet corn flour biscuits on top.
And those biscuits really do bring this dish together. They soak up some of the tomato juices and add that comfort food feel without being overly heavy or dense.
So while you are out shopping at the farmer’s markets this weekend or picking fresh cherry tomatoes from your gardens, save some for this rustic tomato cobbler.
