First, catch your sweet potato

If A = Sweet Potato


B = Yellow miso, tahini, mirin, maple syrup, plum vinegar, water mixed to taste


C = sesame seeds


A (cut in cubes and baked til cooked through ) + B (poured over top) + C (toasted and sprinkled) = a D-licious quick dinner, or a great side dish with some sort of Asian inspired grilled meat.

And leftover B can be kept in the fridge for a few days. It improves over time.

And on its own, it's V* & VV**


If you don't have plum vinegar, use rice vinegar, or even sherry vinegar. If you don't have maple syrup, use honey or your favourite sugar. Really, you just need the miso and the tahini (1/3 cup of each), and you can play around with your other ingredients as you wish. Just don't be heavy handed at the beginning, so you can adjust the all important balance as you go. Would be delicious on pumpkin or parsnip as well.
