      I halved the recipe and enjoyed the dish. I was wishing the glaze had been more concentrated and stuck to the sweet potatoes more, but enjoyed the flavor! Thanks for posting!

      I made a half a recipe of this, so maybe I messed up the proportions, but I didn't like it very much. There weren't enough different flavors or textures for me. I don't think I'll be making this again.

      Absolutely amazing! We LOVED the combination of flavors, they were very balanced. The ginger and soy was new for us on sweet potatoes, but worked perfectly. I only used 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, but I am sure it would also be good with the stated amount. This was different and YUMMY!
