This sounds yummie, but I'd be interested in how you serve this. Also, there are some ingredients in the directions that are missing from the ingredient list. It says to stir in the cane syrup and green onions, but they are not listed as ingredients. Also, in would help to note somewhere that the sweet potatoes need to be cooked. Some folks may not know how to make a roux so that information would be helpful also.
