Miso-Maple Sweet Potato Tacos with Coconut-Cilantro Sauce

Miso-Maple Sweet Potato Tacos with Coconut-Cilantro Sauce

Serves 3-4 people

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE GLAZED SWEET POTATO FILLING:

FOR THE TACO FIXINGS:

  • Corn tortillas, 2 to 3 per person
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Sprouts
  • Cilantro
  • Chopped scallions
  • Toasted pepitas

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Heat oven to 400°F. Whisk the miso paste, maple syrup, and vinegar together in a small bowl. Spread
sweet potatoes and onions in a single layer on a baking sheet (you might need 2 baking sheets). Drizzle
with a little olive oil, and then liberally brush the glaze over the vegetables.
2. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes. The time will vary depending on the heat of your oven
and the size of your sweet potato cubes. The onions will likely be done first so be sure to watch and
take them out when they’re nicely browned but not burnt. When the sweet potatoes are finished, remove
from the oven, taste and add another brushing of glaze if you wish.
3. Serve on warm corn tortillas with cilantro-coconut sauce (see below) and fixings such as avocado,
sprouts, cilantro, and pepitas.
