Yield: 4 Servings
|Peeled, diced vegetables: Carrots, Rutabagas, Turnips, Onions, Celery
|Butter or vegan margarine
|Freshly ground black pepper
|Hazelnuts chopped or slivered
|Onion; peeled and grated
|Garlic clove; crushed
|Dried thyme OR- herbes de Provence
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Broil the vegetables in water to cover for 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Drain, reserving the water.
Blend about one-third of the vegetables with 2 tablespoons of the butter or vegan margarine and enough of the reserved water to make a puree in a food processor or blender.
Add this puree to the rest of the vegetables. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture into a shallow ovenproof casserole.
To make the crumble topping, put the oats into a bowl with all the nuts, the onion, garlic, herbs and salt and pepper. Add the rest of the butter or vegan margarine, and mix with a fork until the topping mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
Sprinkle the crumble mixture evenly over the top of the vegetables.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, until topping is crisp and lightly browned.
