Braised Coconut Spinach & Chickpeas w/Lemon

She mentioned a particular recipe, and even more impressively, remembered to email it to me later the next week once we were both back on our respective coasts.

I roasted a sweet potato the first time, and grossly underestimated the amount of time for that to finish baking in my toaster oven, so if you do the sweet potato, try starting that a bit early, or cut it up to help it cook.
