I made changes to the classic recipe to make this delicious vegetarian dish. Serve with brown gravy or ketchup. (1008977, come to think of it, 5 carrots does seem like a lot... I don't recall how many I used when I made it, but I believe I just used a large handful of baby carrots)

Very tasty! I did not mash the carrots...just chopped them and cooked with the onions and celery. It was so delicious. I love having these vegetarian comfort foods.
