Miso Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are a great ingredient to have already cooked and ready to leap into a salad or grain bowl. Because we’ve started carrying miso products in the Marketplace this week, I wanted to create a simple and quick recipe that highlighted the sweet potato and miso…it’s a winning combo!

What you need:

  • 1 – 2 sweet potatoes (skins on), cut into 1 inch cubes
  • Oil
  • 3 tbsp miso paste or Gochujang (if you want a little heat)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice or rice vinegar
  • Optional, red pepper flakes and sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Toss sweet potatoes in oil and place on baking sheet in one layer. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes until tender.

Meanwhile, add all the other ingredients to a small saucepan and heat over medium until combined and slightly thickened. This takes about 5 minutes. When the sweet potatoes come out of the oven, toss them in the miso glaze and serve warm! Sprinkle with sesame seeds or red pepper flakes if you’d like.
