Herbed Sweet Potato Stew

An easy dinner to make on the stovetop or in a crockpot
  • 8 russet potatoes diced
  • 5 stalks of celery diced
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 1 bag of frozen carrots or 2 cups fresh carrots diced
  • 1 bag frozen mashed Trader Joe’s sweet potatoes or 2 cups fresh mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Herbs de Provence – herb blend
  • 32 oz. water

add all ingredients to a large stock pot or a crockpot.

stovetop: bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer for 1 hour or until potatoes are tender.

crockpot: cook on high for 4 hours or until potatoes are tender.

Top with optional seasonings: black pepper, a sprinkle of salt or sriracha hot sauce.

Hearty, slightly sweet stew pairs perfectly with the zip of sriracha hot sauce!

I hope you enjoy my recipe!

  1. Hi, Ami. Love your recipes. I wish you could consider adding one of the recipe printing plugins to your blog so it is easier to print just the recipe and not all the other stuff on the page. Thanks.

    1. Hi Larry,

      I save anything internet related – recipes, news stories, blogs to read later, sales fliers, pdf docs, photos etc. to Evernote.http://www.evernote.com It’s a free program that lets you stash stuff for later use, like you would in a 3 ring binder. I try not to waste paper/ink by printing things I can just view online. Evernote also has apps for smart phones and allows you to share notes with others.

      I never take recipe posts off once they are are uploaded so you can always find them here, bookmark for later use.

      1. Ami – just discovered this site via the E2 Facebook and I too use EverNote. It’s awesome however I notice there is no real easy way to pull this recipe into EN from my phone or iPad which is how I do 99% of my personal web browsing.

      2. Hi Patrick, since I host my blog with wordpress, I can’t add plug-ins at this time that would allow me to add a evernote button. When I am clipping things from my iphone, I often take a screen shot of what ever I am browsing and add the photo to evernote. Hope that helps.

      3. but what about for people that would like to print and keep in a binder…in the kitchen…where we cook. i love saving things on the computer too but i do not have or want a computer in the kitchen. a printing option would be nice.

  2. Hi Ami – I am a big fan of Evernote also and use it constantly to clip recipes, especially. I seem to just love all of your recipes – thank you for sharing them and giving us lots of plant strong inspiration!!

  3. Hi Amy, this sounds so good, can’t wait to make it! Where can one buy Herbs de Provence? If it’s Trader Joes, can you give me an idea of what it consists of (no Trader Joes by me). Thanks

  4. I just started using Evernote! Now I have to figure out how to save things like this on it. So far all I know how to do is to copy and paste the web address to an Evernote page. The recipe looks delicious.

    1. Hi Barb, it depends on what operating system and browser you are using. I am on mac and I have a little icon on the top of my screen to click that gives me options on what to save. But all systems/browsers are different.

  5. This looks really good. I can’t tell by reading the recipe what the topping is but it looks like cheese, is it? And is the red stuff the sriracha sauce?
    Thank you

  6. I made this tonight, in a crockpot. It turned out very yummy! We had a ton of liquid though, so it was more like a soup than a stew. I used a combination of russet and yukon gold potatoes, just because that’s what I had on hand. I didn’t have Herbs de Provance, either, so I just used some savory, thyme, oregano, basil and rosemary. We topped with black pepper and sriracha, as suggested. Thanks, Ami! :)
