What is the quantity of sweet potato for this recipe?


Please confirm the ingredients for this recipe – it doesn’t make any sense.


no sweet potatoes in ingredients list.


The amount of sweet potatoes is the same as white potatoes, 1 pound. It says so in the video.Hope this helps.


This recipe has a rather serious error! It has left out the sweet potatoes completely, even tho it refers to them in the directions, and instead, refers to “2 tablespoons extra virgin olive, thinly sliced”. I expect one could guess about the sweet potatoes, but such an error makes me worried what ELSE might be left out!
