Scandinavian Vegetable Stew

Yummy Scandinavian Vegetable Stew. I served this in little bread bowls. The bread bowls were actually only hard buns because I couldn't find any mini buns but I put them in the oven after I hallowed them. Everyone loved it.. you could spice it up a bit tho if you prefer. :)
