  1. Hey! This recipe looks awesome. Has lots of stuff I love and I have a couple sweet potatoes that need eating. Just one question. You say that the dish will last 5-7 days. I’ll be eating this primarily by myself. I still want to keep the portions because I need to finish off what I have anyway. If it proves too much, does this dish freeze well? I typically avoid freezing food because it’s just never the same afterwards.

    Hope you still check these comments. Either way, thanks for the recipe!

    • Hi Marc! You know, I have never frozen this dish to eat later..but I have a feeling it should save well. Give it a try! 🙂 If you don’t think it saves well, then next time, just cut the ingredients in half to make less. Cheers!
