Root Veggie dish that meat eaters will like for Thanksgiving

I always have Thanksgiving with a big group of friends who don't do Thanksgiving with their bio families for various reasons. I ALWAYS take this dish and everyone always goes crazy for it. I use this as my main dish and skip the Tofurky because I think it's nasty. I usually also make veggie stuffing, vegan mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy to share.

I originally found this recipe in a book or on a website, but I can't remember which one. If you recognize this recipe let me know so I can properly cite it.

Harvest Veggie Ragout
oilve oil
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 bay leaves
1 tbsp flour
2 thyme springs
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 cup dry red wine
3 cups diced peeled butternut squash
2 cups sliced leeks
1 1/2 cup sliced carrots
1 1/2 cup sliced parsnips
1 cup sliced celery
10 cloves garlic
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/2 cup veggie broth
1 can chikpeas
6 portabello mushrooms

Heat oil. Combine squash, leeks, carrots, parsnips, celery, garlic. Saute 8 minutes until browned. Add bay leaves, thyme. Stir in tomato paste, flour and wine. Reduce heat and cook five minutes. Stir in broth and chickpeas. Cover and simmer 20 minutes until veggies are tender. Stir in 1/2 tsp salt and pepper. Discrad bay leaves and thyme. Slice mushroom caps. Heat oil and fry 5 minutes, add 1/4 tsp salt. Cover the top of the ragout with the mushrooms.

*edit* I forgot to add that this feeds about an army. The recipe will fill a big dutch oven style pot.
