2 large sweet potatoes (about 2 lbs), peeled and diced
1/2 large sweet onion, chopped or 2 scallions, thinly sliced
10 ounces fresh spinach, washed, stemmed and coarsely chopped

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish
1-2 teaspoon canola oil
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 cup water
Basmati rice or brown rice, for serving

8. When all the spinach is added to the pan, cover and simmer for about 3 minutes (until the spinach is just wilted).
9. Add the cooked sweet potatoes to the liquid, and stir to coat.
10. Simmer for another 3-5 minutes (or until the flavors are well combined).
11. Transfer to a serving dish, toss with fresh cilantro and serve hot (over Basmati or brown rice).
