Curried Sweet Potatoes, Spinach and Chickpeas

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 scallions (white and light green parts), thinly sliced
  • 1 to 2 tsp. curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 10 to 12 oz. fresh spinach, stemmed and coarsely chopped
  • 2 large sweet potatoes (about 2 lbs.), peeled and diced
  • 16- to 20-oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 14.5-oz. can diced tomatoes
  • DIRECTIONS
    1. In large saucepan fitted with steamer basket, bring 2 inches water to a boil over high heat. Add sweet potatoes, cover and cook until just tender, about 15 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, in another large saucepan, combine chickpeas, tomatoes and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add spinach, cover and cook just until wilted, about 3 minutes.
    3. Stir in sweet potatoes, cilantro, scallions, curry powder, cumin, cinnamon and salt to taste until well combined. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until flavors have blended, about 5 minutes. Serve hot.

Made this with squash, instead of sweet potato, and tofu, instead of chickpea. So lush!

Can’t wait to use your recipes!!! They look yummy! One suggestion though ~ could you please include in your recipes how many servings they yield. It would be quite helpful in planning on how much to make. Thanks
