It took me a little time to decide whether this was a good recipe, but I primarily blame that on a less than stellar sweet potato. I also kicked in a little more salt and pepper. I served this with brown rice and it was very good. Warming and filling. A welcome addition to the lunch time soup menu.
So pretty, healthy and easy! DH who is not big of spicy food really loved this curried stew, stating it was nicely flavored and something he would enjoy again. I made as written, did sneak a taste of DH's lunch and must say I also found this to be flavorful without being too strongly flavored. Thanks for the post.
