I made this for a bunch of folks and all enjoyed immensely. We used zucchini, squash, carrots, and potaotes and this turned out very lovely & filling. One person has been fighting a cold and said this really helped. I served with garden salad & a nice loaf of crusty bread. Thanks for an easy filling meal!!
Good flavor. My DH really liked it, which surprised me because he doesn't care for sweet potatoes! I was afraid that it was going to be too spicy for me so I just added the chili powder a little at a time until I had the whole amount in. I was amazed that there was little to no heat at all. Thanks for a new recipe!
This is great! I am really digging it right now...especially with added dollops of plain yogurt. I went with a combo of sweet potato, orange bell pepper, celery, and carrot. Also used veggie stock. I think next time I will opt for fresh ginger since I prefer that taste to the powdered stuff. Really good, well-spiced recipe! Thanks so much :)
