    I can see adding the carrots to the sweet potatoes, and I make mine with some chicken stock and spices and whip them,but I can't see adding the br. sugar - to me sweet potatoes have enough flavor & sweetness on their own plus the carrots will add some some sweetness and who needs the extra calories - 2/7/09

    Made this last night & we loved it! I suggest starting the carrots first though, as I used a mixer and had pcs of carrot- which was fine- if you care. Also, add more pie spice. This made WAY MORE than 8 servings! There was 4 of us last night, & we could eat this at least twice more to finish it. - 5/12/09

    Sweet potatoes are *so* good for you. This could probably be adapted to lower the sodium, too. - 2/2/09

    This does sound good, but I think maybe you should remove the vegetarian tag. You can substitute with vegetable boullion (and most of us vegetarians know this), but as it is, chickens aren't vegetables. - 4/26/09
