Inspired by The True Food Kitchen, these miso-glazed sweet potatoes are a perfect side but can also be the star of the show.
4 sweet potatoes or yams
1/4 cup white miso paste
2 Tablespoons maple syrup or honey
3 teaspoons soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
2 teaspoon sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut potatoes into small 1/2 inch cubes and place on baking sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until soft.
In a small bowl, whisk together the miso, maple syrup, soy sauce, hot sauce.
Toss the potatoes with the sauce and add to a frying pan on the stove top, under medium heat. Cook until the sauce starts to thicken on the potatoes.
Sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
