This simple slow cooker dish is can be made with any hearty root vegetables and makes a great side dish or complete meal.  I like to use sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnips, and rutabaga but feel free to add celery root, turnips, red potatoes, butternut squash, or any other sturdy vegetable.  Depending on the vegetables you choose and their natural sweetness, you can consider adding 1-2 tablespoons of honey to sweeten things up.
