This was very good, especially the way the sweet potatoes got very soft and kind of melted into the stew a bit. But I would say it is a little too tomato-y, my whole family agreed. Next time I make it, I would use a regular size can if tomatoes instead of one of the big 16oz ones, and I would add the tomatoes in after the onion, garlic and ginger are sautéed and cook them down a little, because adding the tomato at the end left the dish with a canned-tomato taste, even though I simmered for an additional hour. I also changed a couple things - I used spinach instead of kale which worked fine, and I added about 1 tablespoon of cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon (from another recipe) -- the spices added a nice subtle flavor to the stew.
