"This is a great easy recipe. The Kale and Sweet Potato are a healthy and delicious addition. It does require more seasoning. I will definitely be making this again."

"Sad to say, made according to directions we found this bland or ordinary. I added more garlic, a shake of red pepper flakes, onion powder, another 1/2 tsp of salt and it was more palatable."

"This smelled so good we could hardly wait to dig into it! I took some to a homebound lady who ate two bowls right away and saved another bowl for later!! I seldom bring her something that really "hits her spot" so this was a thrill for me!!"

"What a unique taste this stew has. It's the sweet potatoes. It was wonderful. I did not have Kale so used a box of Green Giant frozen creamed spinich. I also threw in some lentils I had in the frig. It was an awesome stew and will make it again."
