OK, something must have gone seriously wrong with the ingredients description of this WONDERFUL and very yummy recipe. ;) The amounts listed for the spices make no sense at all. WAY too much. Also, these bite-sized cubes won’t take anywhere near an hour to cook. I used 1 teaspoon turmeric, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon dried thyme. And 4 tablespoons of oil. In about 30 minutes, the sweet potatoes (my size bite-sized chunks) were done. And believe me, they were PLENTY fragrant and spiced. I seasoned with salt and pepper to taste.
