    The description says it gets its flavor from dried fruit & herbs, but I don’t see any fruit in ingredients.

      Krista, That was a misprint. I removed the “dried fruit” text. Thanks for your comment. 🙂

    are there supposed to be sweet potatoes, too?

      You can add them if you’d like!

    I am a WW member. I don’t see how this dish could have 6 smart points since squash and carrots are 0 points.
