Sweet Potato and Kidney Bean Salad

Mike and I tend to get really into TV shows after they’ve been on for a couple years.  Right now we are OBSESSED with parenthood and are working our way through the first season on Netflix.

I feel ridiculously behind the times that I’m just now watching this, but it’s so good I don’t care.  I love that it’s set in Berkeley (although clearly not filmed there), but it also already has me nervous about Ellie’s teenage years.

Speaking of Ellie, she’s officially crawling now.  Help me.

What I really want to call this is African Peanut Stew Salad.  I wanted the flavor of that, but the lightness of a salad, so I roasted some sweet potatoes and tossed them with fresh spinach and kidney beans.  For the dressing, I made a super simple tomato sauce (just butter, onion, and tomatoes), but added some peanut butter and curry powder.  When you pour the warm sauce over the salad, you get the spinach to wilt just the right amount.
