Miso-Maple Sweet Potato Tacos

Ingredients

Glazed Sweet Potato Filling:
2 tablespoons miso paste
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 medium sweet potatoes, unpeeled and chopped into small cubes
1 small red onion, chopped
Olive oil

Cilantro-Coconut Sauce:
1/2 cup light coconut milk
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
1/4 cup basil leaves
1 scallion, green and white parts, chopped
1/4 cup toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1 lime, zested and juiced
1 small garlic clove
Splash of Sriracha hot sauce (optional)
Pinch of sugar (optional)
Salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste

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

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.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes. 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.

In a food processor, pulse all sauce ingredients together until just combined.

Serve veggies on warm corn tortillas with sauce and fixings such as avocado, sprouts, cilantro, and pepitas.
