Well, we all had mixed reactions to this one. I didn't use the same proportions because I had a LOT of chickpeas and the tail end of a butternut squash rather than sweet potatoes. Also decreased the broth to two cups because I like a hearty stew vs. a soup. Also didn't have tamari but did add a light splash of soy sauce. First bite reactions: sort of ho-hum for me. Not awful, but not great. The kids acted as though I was trying to shove death down their throats and finished their bowls amid many tears. This kind of surprised me, because as a general rule, they're great veggie eaters. Anyways, I served leftovers with toasted home made sourdough english muffins, and I must say, when these two were mixed, I was immediately thrown back to my college days, in which I spent a year traveling with a band of gypsies... oh wait, that never happened. But I think it should have, because really, it was THAT good. I felt sinful eating it at my kitchen table. Truly, it should only be eaten on a chilly night, outside, huddled around a fire and with an abundance of crusty bread (any variety should do) to dip into this wildly comforting, vegetable-laden bowl of warmth. If you really want to go nuts, toast a bit of cheese on top of the bread and then pretend like you didn't just eat four bowls.
