Casserole, Vegetable III (P, TNT)
Source: This is my variation on Aharoni's recipe
Serves: 6-8

1 bag (about 2 lb.) small potatoes (I think they are named in the U.S. new potatoes); wash well, don't peel, don't cut
2 turnips (first time in my life I cooked this out of chicken soup) - peel and cut to large chunks
3 large celery heads (i.e., the root, not the green leaves); peel and cut to large chunks
2 lb. shallots or small onions; peel, don't cut
1 head garlic; peel, don't cut
1 sprig rosemary OR 1 tbsp. dried rosemary
1 tsp. dried thyme
Salt, pepper, sweet paprika, curry powder, cumin; to taste
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
For garnish: fresh chopped parsley (optional)

Heat oven to 400°F.

Arrange all vegetables in a pan.

Season with herbs and seasonings. Sprinkle (by closing bottle with thumb, and shaking bottle over pan) olive oil, and then balsamico, over pan contents.

Cover with aluminum foil and put in oven for about 1/2 hour.

Lower heat in oven to 350°F.

Pour into pan (if you have a kettle with a spout, you can do this without even removing pan from oven) about 2 cups water, water should come to about 1/2 height or the vegetables.

Cover again with foil, rather tightly, and leave in oven until tender, about 1 hour.

To serve: arrange in plate, and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley if using.

Poster's Notes:
This is my variation on Aharoni's recipe. The reason it's a variation is not because I am so inventive, rather the opposite, usually I follow recipes to the letter--but because I lost the recipe and had to reconstruct it from memory...

To the feedback department, it was very good, easy to make. People liked it very much and it is on one hand very filling, on the other hand not very fattening... I will definitely do this again.
