This is a healthier version of a Southern favorite. Make the sauce as thick or thin as you desire. This can even be served as a stew with a couple of spoonfuls of rice added. Remember to make the same day as my Harvest Corn Sweet Potato Bread.

    This can be served over rice or even cheddar mashed potatoes. I like to make this the same time I bake my https://www.justapinch.com/recipes/bread/sweet-bread/harvest-corn-sweet-potato-bread.html. That way I am dicing sweet potatoes all on the same day. The sweetness of the bread really complements this dish.
