A simple hearty dish, roasted sweet potato wedges topped with a light tahini miso dressing.
you can absolutely serve these just by themselves but the dressing just kicks it up a notch :)
The sweet potatoes are a low glycemic (good for blood sugar levels) carbohydrate, full of fiber & vitamins only 63 calories per 4oz.
the dressing is only 35 calories per tablespoon and so packed with flavor a little bit goes a very long way.

difficulty level: beginner

equipment needed: using a mandolin slicer speeds this up, but not necessary, you could just as easily use a knife.

for sweet potatoes:

  • preheat oven to 450 degrees bake
  • line a large baking sheet with foil, lightly greased or sprayed
  • slice each sweet potato in half lengthwise, proceed to slice each half in 1/4" thick slices. if you are using a mandolin this will make the prep super quick.
  • in bowl or Tupperware, drizzle 3/4 tbsp oil and 1/4 tsp salt on potatoes and mix well with your hands coating the potatoes.
  • spread wedges on greased baking sheet in one layer, no overlapping.
  • bake wedges for 15min

for dressing:

  • put all ingredients in a mason jar or glass and mix vigorously with a fork until even consistency is achieved.
