Very tasty! Spicy, yet sweet from the sweet potatoes ~ Made for Cool Beans! featured in the Photo Forum, March 2010.

This stew really hit the spot. So quick, healthy and delicious. Loved it! I added about 1/2 t. of chili powder and some crushed red pepper only because we love a little kick and used onion instead of leek. Thanks for sharing the keeper recipe.

Yum! This was much more flavorful than I expected. I made it as directed and served with a hearty bread to dip in the stew. In the future I think I will cut the sweet potato cubes a bit smaller. Overall, very satisfying.
