This was very good. And easy to make. I added an onion. The carrots dominated. Next time I'll use one less. The rutabaga, potato and parsnips were wonderful; all the vegs. "went" together. I did not peel my potato. This seems like a main course to me. Just add a salad and you're good to go. Nice recipe Mirj.
