Coarse kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
¼cupfresh parsleyfinely chopped
For the Biscuit Topping:
2cupsunbleached all purpose flour
6tablespoonsunsalted buttercold and cut into cubes
1cupshredded sharp cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 450ºF.
Lay the jackfruit on a clean kitchen towel and pat dry. Using your fingers, press the jackfruit chunks and pull apart into large shreds. Set aside.
In a medium pot, melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add ¼ cup flour and whisk for 1 minute. Add the wine and whisk for an additional minute. Slowly whisk in stock and milk. Bring to a boil, whisking almost constantly, then reduce heat to a simmer. Continue to whisk for 5 minutes or until it begins to thicken.
Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a 12 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring for 1 minute more.
Pour the thickened milk mixture into the cast iron skillet along with the jackfruit, corn, carrots, peas, and mushrooms. Season to taste with salt and pepper and add the thyme, rosemary, and parsley. Transfer the pan to the oven while you make the biscuits.
To make the biscuits, place flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and garlic powder in food processor and pulse to combine. Add the cold butter and pulse 5-7 times until the butter is pea sized. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and stir in the buttermilk, being careful not to over mix. Fold in the cheddar cheese and chives.
Remove the cast iron skillet from the oven and carefully drop large spoonfuls of biscuit dough neatly on top. Return the pan to the oven and bake 15 minutes or until the biscuits are cooked through and lightly browned on top. Remove from the oven and brush the biscuits with the melted butter. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
