      This was HOT. Maybe using 2 oz of ginger in a jar was not the same as the ginger in the recipe. The dietary wimpy people in my house couldn't handle it. I also used canned sweet potatoes and less broth because they were already cooked. Made for ZWT9.

      Wow, this was really terrific! I was looking for something to make the veggie crowd on a night when jerk chicken was on the menu, and this was great. Veg folks enjoyed it as a main and meat eaters loved it as a side. So flavorful, and really not too difficult to put together. I will admit to a shortcut; I just diced all of the onion and put all of the seasonings in together, skipping the food processor bit. I also added some fresh red pepper with the onions, and I highly recommend the addition! I did cook the potatoes a bit longer than instructed, just because we like them fairly tender. Even my 11 month old devoured this. Made for ZWT9, Gourmet Goddesses.
