Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.

Combine all the vegetables and steam just until tender. In a large saucepan, combine the steamed veggies, 2 tablespoons of margarine, flour, vegetable broth, soy milk and sage. Cook until the sauce begins to thicken and add a bit of salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.

Love this recipe! I add lentils for protein and garlic to the mashed potatoes and it makes a great one-dish meal. My ultra-picky daughter loves it and so do her friends. Definitely give this one a try!
