Literally meaning “Pot on Fire”, pot au feu (poh-toh-FEUH) is a French dish of slow-simmered meats and vegetables. Traditionally, the broth is served on its own as the first course, but can be ladled over the meats with the main dish. In this version, the stewed vegetables are pureed and served as a welcomed accompaniment. Any root, potato or winter squash can replace the parsnips.
