Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 3 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/4 tsp mild, 1/2 tsp medium and 1 tsp spicy! Add rice, 1 1/4 cups water and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Meanwhile, using a strainer, drain and rinse kidney beans. Thinly slice green onions. Peel, then cut sweet potato into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel, then finely mince or grate half the ginger (all for 4 ppl). Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Trim the bottom of lemongrass, then remove outer layer. Using a rolling pin or heavy pot, carefully smash lemongrass to split open. Thinly slice chili, removing seeds for less heat. (TIP: We suggest using gloves when prepping chilis!)
Heat a large pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then ginger, garlic, lemongrass, onions and 1/4 tsp chilis. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.) Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1-2 min. Add kidney beans, sweet potatoes, vegetarian oyster sauce and coconut milk. Rinse coconut milk can with 1/3 cup water (1/4 cup for 4 ppl), then add to the pot. Bring to a simmer over high heat. Once simmering, reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until sweet potatoes are tender, 8-10 min.
Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then green onions. Cook, stirring often, until green onions soften, 1-2 min. Add rice. Cook, stirring often, until combined, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Remove lemongrass pieces from curry. Add spinach to curry. Stir until wilted, 1 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Divide rice between bowls, then top with curry. Sprinkle any remaining chilis over top, to taste.
