Salt & pepper
1 onion, peeled and chopped
1 tsp cumin seed

2 tins chickpeas, drained and rinsed
100g baby spinach
- Heat oil in a large frying pan and fry the sweet potatoes on each side until starting to caramelise.

- Add the chickpeas and some water. Cook out for another 5-10 minutes, and then add spinach.
