    I threw this is in the slow cooker, which doesn't need the butter then. Also, I subbed some low fat milk for half of the broth to reduce salt and add calicum. - 5/11/09

    Sounds great and I would add 1/2 a small butternut squash to round out the flavor; plus use EVOO to saute not margarine..a healthier fat!! Serve with a dollop of FF plain yogurt and a sprinkle of chopped walnuts. - 4/16/09

    I love sweet potatoes, and always look for ways to make healthy meals with them. Reading the comments, I'd use olive oil instead to saute, and just let it cook longer. Also would add butternut squash for the vitamin boost. Great stuff! - 12/21/10

    Not sure where all the sodium comes from in this recipe - too much for my hubby who has high blood pressure - will calculate with salt free broth & EVOO & see if I can make this for us - sounds yummy! - 4/23/09

    DON'T BELIEVE THESE SODIUM COUNTS! They are always way more than the ingredients show they should be. Take a look at the ingredients. The only things containing much sodium are the broth and margarine. Use low-sodium broth if you are still concerned. Sounds good. Will try this one - 4/15/09

  • Take out the margarine and use butter instead for a healthier recipe. Margarine is one of the most unhealthly fats created by humans and should never be consumed! - 9/10/11

    Three stars because it was missing something. My Sweetie ate it and said, "BACON!!" Yes, I think he's on to something. Next time I'll put some bacon in it and see if it can go from three stars to five. - 12/22/10
