    Glad to find the recipe. I saw part of the show; missed most of the Sengalese chef preparing it, so don’t know how much, if any, changes they made to his recipe. I made it as given except I didn’t use any oil. I lightly browned the onion in a dry stockpot, adding wee bit of broth as needed. I thought it called for a lot of salt, 2tsp with the onions, and 2tsp more when adding the sweet potatoes, so I reduced it by one tsp. But after it was completed, I tasted it and decided to add the fourth tsp of salt. Yum!
