Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 to 2 lbs. sweet potatoes cut into wedges
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp. brown or coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tsp. fish sauce
  • 1 tsp. sriracha chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut or cashew milk plus 1 to 2 Tbsp.
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • Fresh mint basil, or green onion for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Spread sweet potato wedges in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, avoiding overlap. Toss evenly with oil and salt. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, tossing once halfway through, watching closely to prevent burning. Transfer to a serving platter.
  • Combine peanut butter, lime juice, sugar, soy sauce, fish sauce, sriracha, and 1/4 cup nut milk in a bowl; stir with a whisk. Whisk in 1 to 2 additional Tbsp. of milk, until desired consistency is reached. Drizzle peanut butter sauce over sweet potatoes. Garnish with fresh mint, basil, or green onion.
