Cook's Notes

Sweet potatoes are available sporadically year-round, but they're at their sweetest in fall and winter. They are sometimes mislabeled as yams, which are actually not widely available in North America.

    So good i could have just had this with rice for dinner and been happy. Use baby spinach, and i subbed shallots for the onion and roasted them with the sweet potato tossed in the balsamic and curry while the spinach was wilting. I just prefer the extra crisp you get from roasting but im sure its good either way.

    I've made this a few times and I love it. The very first time I undercooked the potatoes, now I know to double check them. I just made this tonight replacing broccolini for the spinach, and it was also quite good!

    This is my favorite way to eat sweet potatoes and I make this regularly. I find that I do not need to cook the sweet potatoes for the full 10 minutes after adding the water; they tend to get too mushy. Could be my stove. I recommend cooking them until they're done to your taste. I also substitute baby spinach if I don't have regular spinach.

    This was easy, and really delicious. It's one of those things that's so simple, I wonder why I needed a recipe to think of it. I would never have put the curry powder with this, but I'm so glad I tried it. We all loved it. It's definitely going in the rotation!

    A fast easy and delicious dish! I was out of curry so I used cumin, coriander and smoked paprika instead and was pleased with the results. I also added garlic to the spinach. I'll definitely make this again.

    Wow! Extremely delicious. I just tried this recipe today and it turned out great! I actually put in a little corriander by mistake along with the cumin and it was really good. This recipe reminds me of a middle eastern flavor, I think a good piece of lamb would be good with this.

    I made this recipe last night, because I am doing the Daniel Fast with my church. It was great. The curry seasoning, was a nice surprise. I wasn't sure how it was going to affect the dish, but it fit perfectly. When I sauteed the spinach, I added garlic, to enhance the flavor.
