Wonderful recipe--although cooking time ended up being somewhat longer in order to get the vegetables tender. I used Silk Creamer in lieu of the half-and-half to make this vegan. It was AMAZINGLY flavorful, and definitely hit the spot on a chilly day. Thanks for this recipe! It will be a regular in our house!
