Looking at several root vegetables milling around the kitchen, I came up with this recipe that spices up these veggies with typical Indian spices and a few other fun additions. Tomatoes help make a pseudo-gravy. Serve with basmati rice. Reduce number of red peppers to reduce heat-spice, if you can't hack it.

  • Add yam, sweet potato, and red potatoes to the frying pan with the onion mixture. Stir to spread spices evenly. Cook over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and stir to release juices. Reduce heat to low, cover the pan, and simmer until root vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.

  • Add spinach to the frying pan; cook and stir until wilted, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and garnish with cilantro.
