  1. I made this tonight for my family. EVERYONE LOVED IT!! Thank you for posting this. I did make a couple changes, I added about 6 carrots chopped up (because I needed to use them up) and I doubled the recipe except for the onion and the garlic (only because I decided to double it after i had those cooked and had added the broth). Thank you again. I will be making this often!

  2. Haha, okay, I see where you wrote “broth” in the actual instructions!

    This recipe looks incredibly delicious. I hated sweet potatoes when I was a kid, but in the last few years something clicked and I find myself craving them all the time!

  3. In the ingredients list, when you write “3 (15 ounce) cans vegetable (you can use chicken)”, do you mean vegetable broth or chicken broth?
