Sweet Potato Stew

Honestly, I am not that crazy about this stew.  It isn’t bad, really, just not very interesting.  I don’t think I’ll finish the leftovers.  It is nice and warming, so maybe it would be better on a really cold day.  The cinnamon and nutmeg also gives it a nice wintery flavoring.


  • 3 sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 3 medium potatoes, cubed
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 2 celery sticks, sliced
  • 1 14oz can stewed tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon EACH cinnamon and nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 cups chicken broth

What I did:

  • Dump it all in a 4 quart slow cooker.
  • Cook on low for 7 hours.

The original recipe called for 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, and only 2 sweet potatoes and 2 potatoes.  That might have improved it a bit.  Or not.  Difficult to say.  The original recipe also called for TWO cans of tomatoes, which would have ruined it completely for me.  Total canned tomato overkill.
