Vegetable Pot-Au-Feu (Baked Vegetable Stew)

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 200


1 large baking potato
1 large sweet potato
1 small rutabaga or 2 medium white turnips
2 large carrots
1 medium parsnip
3 1/2 cups chopped onions
2 cups water or vegetable stock
1/4 cup tamari sauce
12 cloves garlic halved
5 bay leaves
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon dried tarragon
1/3 cup water


1. Cut the potatoes, rutabaga, carrots, and parsnip into medium-size chunks and place in a large, deep baking dish along with the onion, water, tamari, garlic, and bay leaves. Cover and bake in a preheated 350°F oven for about 11/2 hours, or until the vegetables are tender.

2. When the vegetables are almost tender, prepare the sauce. Heat the oil in a small saucepan. Add the flour, curry powder, and tarragon, and stir to combine. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium-high heat for about 3–4 minutes, or until the flour browns and begins to give off a nutty aroma. Remove from the heat and add the water, stirring vigorously to form a smooth paste.

3. Add the flour mixture to the vegetables and mix well to thicken the stew. If too thin, bake the stew uncovered for 5 minutes, or until it thickens. If too thick, add a little water.

4. Serve hot along with a crisp green salad and some fresh whole-grain sourdough bread.
