READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by Sheynath

Yummy side dish. We especially enjoy it in the fall and winter. Great comfort food. The cooking time sounds like its way too long, but it produces an incredible texture and really lets the seasonings incorporate in to food.

Absolutely loved this. I used a balsamic glaze and added some sweet potatoes but other than that kept exactally to the recipe. I can imagine serving this one on Christmas Day.
