    I made this for dinner tonight. It wasn't too bad, but reminded me a lot of what I baby food would taste like. Doubt I will make again, unless it's for a baby I have in the future. - 3/29/12

    WOW! I made this for lunch because I had a variety of root veg in the fridge. Instead of sour cream - which I didn't have - I subtracted the cream calories from calories for 30g of soft goats cheese and grilled it on top of the mashed vegetables - delicious! Will try the sour cream next time. - 12/1/09
