    This is one of my family’s FAV recipes! We love it! Both carnivores and vegans love it! Sometimes, I add butternut squash cubes (frozen) instead of potatoes. We ALWAYS double the recipe if that tell you something! I add two less cups water when doubling. But if you like it saucy, follow the recipe.
