3-4 sweet potatoes, sliced into 2cm thick pieces

1 tblsp agave/honey

Salt & pepper

1 onion, peeled and chopped

1 tsp cumin seed

1 tsp coriander seed

2 tins chickpeas, drained and rinsed

100g baby spinach

Handful coriander

  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan and fry the sweet potatoes on each side until starting to caramelise.
  2. Add about 500ml water and the agave/honey. Season well and cook over a medium heat until the potatoes are starting to get tender (about 20 mins).
  3. Add the chickpeas and some water. Cook out for another 5-10 minutes, and then add spinach.
