This is a traditional dish in Nova Scotia, Canada and can be found on most peoples tables early August when the first "new" vegetable are just being harvested. This dish is also regional and by that I mean that each region of Nova Scotia has their own version of this recipe. In some regions it is made more like a soup or chowders and in other regions it is made more like a sloppy vegetable mixture, with a little bit of "juice", which is how I prefer it. Traditionally this version is made with cream and lots of butter, but I'm trying to eat less fat so I came up with this version. I think it's pretty good and if you've never had the "full fat" version you'll probably enjoy this. Nice way to get all kinds of garden fresh veggies on your plate. This is mmm mmm good for you. Serving size and cooking times are just an estimate. Serving size depends on if you are having as the meal itself or as a side dish.
