Sweet potato, onion, black beans salad

"Good chefs read cookbooks, great chefs write cookbooks" V quoted from the latest Iron Chef rumble when he tasted this salad. Ofcourse I beamed proud :) even though the statement was made under the influence of a particularly strong hot toddy for his stuffy nose and head.Serves 4

1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed in 1" pieces
1 large red onions, cubed into 1" pieces
Kosher salt
2 red chillies crushed
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 cup minced coriander
2 tsp roasted, ground cumin
juice of 1/2 lime

Coat the potato and onion cubes in olive oil, sprinkle with salt and crushed red chillies in a baking dish. Roast for 45 mins at 450 deg, until potatoes are done, onions are brown in places and caramelized.

In a bowl mix the roasted potatoes and onions with the rest of the ingredients. Adjust for salt and lime.
