ROASTED MISO SWEET POTATOES
It's hard to beat a good potato dish for dinner. And this roasted miso potato dish is one of our favorite go-to recipes for a satisfying home-cooked meal. It's deeply filling and tasty, and it pairs really well with a large salad.
We LOVE sweet potatoes! They’re not really a true potato, but more of a yam. They’re a delicious, hearty, nutrient-dense food that is easy to incorporate into a vegetarian diet. If you’ve tried them before and found them too bland, give roast miso sweet potatoes a try the next time you’re in the mood for a new tuber.
Sweet potatoes are a complete food – packed with vitamins A and B6, potassium, and antioxidants. They also help regulate blood sugar, and are a rich source of anti-inflammatory properties. With their buttery texture and delicious flavor, sweet potatoes pair well with a variety of flavors – our favorite happens to be miso!
Our secret hack to make this dish soy-free is to use a chickpea-based miso instead of the traditional fermented soybean miso.
