Reviews for Root Vegetables
"This was so wonderful! The vegetables cooked evenly and had a terrific flavor together!"
"This was a success at my work potluck, several people asked for the recipe. :) It's colorful and smells great. It's nice to have a "special" healthy dish to make for potlucks or holidays."
