Peel and chop sweet potatoes into bite size pieces.
Place potatoes onto cookie sheet and spray with cooking spray, season with salt and pepper and give it a mix. Roast for about 25-30 minutes or until potatoes are tender, stirring half way through.
Meanwhile, in a pot add vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Add rice, once it you have a second boil, cover and simmer for 35 minutes until rice is tender. Fluff with a fork.
In a skillet add olive oil, onion and garlic. Cook over low-medium heat for about 3 - 5 minutes, until onion is tender.
Add in the peppers and cook until tender about 5 minutes. Add a couple of handfuls of fresh spinach and cook until wilted.
