Fantastic dish for the holidays or any day! Really homey and good! Great way to sneak different veggies into picky eaters diets! Any root veggies can be used just use the same measurements provided here. I usually leave out the parsnips since my family refuses to eat them and use an extra potato and an extra carrot. Try this with your favorite combo of root veggies! Posted for Zaar's World Tour 2005- would fit into Scan and Canadian regions as there is alot of Scandinavian influence in the Canadian cuisine.
