    The high sodium comes from the broth. You can easily make your own vegetable broth at home with zero sodium, which I highly recommend. Whenever you are trimming veggies, toss peels, carrot tops, greens, etc. in a bag and freeze. Tie them all into cheesecloth and boil in H2O until liquid is halved. - 9/30/09

    To reduce the sodium simply make your own Veggie broth omitting salt and use dried beans that you soak overnight or quick soad and don't add salt when cooking. Omit the salt or add salt sub in place. Chop own tomatoes and add liquid or use no salt version. Add more broth to make up liquid. - 10/1/09

    I doubled this and adapted it for the slow cooker by using less liquid and increasing the spices, and added garlic while sauteing the onions. I used my own homemade veggie broth (so easy to make!) and used dried black beans soaked overnight. Husband and I loved it! YUM! Thanks for the recipe! - 3/21/10

    I followed the original directions and it was delicious! My husband can be a picky eater, especially when it comes to onions and cooked tomatoes, but he LOVED this and wants me to make it again! Definitely recommended! - 2/21/10

    So yummy! And smells wonderful while cooking! Halved the sodium content by using homemade veg broth, dry beans and only a 15-oz can of diced tomatoes (salt added). Didn't add the extra salt at the end. Replaced one onion with chopped carrots, sauteed vegs with garlic and added pepper. - 12/4/09

    This is great, I made this, but changed the seasonings around some. Amazing, filling, and a perfect cool weather meal. I really love the textures, and the sweetness from the sweet potato. This is definitely becoming a part of our rotation! I'm already looking forward to leftovers tomorrow :) - 8/7/09

  • My teen daughter, who ONLY eats JUNK, actually ate a whole bowl of this. She said, I really like it but don't tell me what's in it. DEAL! Added 1 clove garlic and stalk of celery to onions. Blended 1/2 to make thicker and it less recognizable for my picky family. HUGE HIT. Makes plenty. - 1/3/13

  • I really tried to like this but just didn't :( Even after adding extra spices, it turned out rather bland for my taste, family's too. I love sweet potatoes & black beans but next time will just have them separate. Different strokes for different foks :) - 8/7/11

  • A very resounding YUM. This is basically my favorite kind of food: lots of vitamins, lots of fiber and lots of flavor. Thanks for the idea of mixing black beans and sweet potatoes (I cooked my black beans from dry, so I imagine I saved sodium that way too). - 8/7/09
