In a large, lightly oiled, heavy pot, steam-fry the onion until it begins to soften. Add the flour and stir around thoroughly. Add the remaining ingredients, mix well, and bring to a boil. Cover, turn down to low, and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are done. Taste for seasoning.
Serve with Colcannon.
