Sweet Potatos, Spinach & Beans

2-3 medium sweet potato's - boiled, peeled, and chopped into bite sized cubes
1 cup canned black beans
1 cup canned kidney beans
1 pound fresh spinach chopped (or frozen)
1 medium tomato chopped up
1/2 a medium onion diced
1 clove garlic grated
1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
crushed red pepper and salt to taste
pinch of turmeric
1/2 tbsp cumin
1/2 tbsp ground coriander seed
1 tbsp olive oil

1. Heat up your olive oil on high heat
2. Once it's hot throw in the garlic, onion, ginger and crushed red pepper
3. Once the onions brown turn the heat down to medium and throw in the beans and let them cook for about 2-3 minutes before putting in the spinach.
4. Once the spinach has started to wilt down throw in the sweet potato's and tomato.
5. Add your spices and salt

I like using this as a filling for sandwiches. Mmm. Try serving it with a mixture of ketchup and fresh ground black pepper. Yum! Plus, it freezes well so you can save whatever you don't use for a lazy day.
