  3. Add the sweet potato, chickpeas, tomatoes with their juices, and coconut milk. Stir to combine, cover, and simmer over medium heat for 30 minutes. Mash one-third of the mixture to thicken the sauce.

  4. Stir in the spinach and cook until wilted. Season with the salt and black pepper to taste.

  5. Serve on a bed of cooked grains, garnished with parsley, coconut and lime wedge.
