This is an amazing recipe! This makes these roots and swedes play together nicely, along with adding versatility to them. Good hot or cold: I've eaten this dish cold on salad greens with blue cheese drizzled on it, and it performed splendidly in a potpie with turkey after Thanksgiving. My vegetarian friends love this when I make it!

Made these to go with Kittencal's Perfect Prime Rib Roast Beef. They were outstanding. There were no leftovers. Thanks for the recipe Bev, now everyone wants to know how I made them. Deb
