Sweet Potato Tacos

I love sweet potatoes and am always trying to find new ways to eat them. This recipe is inspired by Sarah Britton’s My New Roots cookbook. In her book she has a recipe for sweet potato and mushroom tacos with a red cabbage slaw. For my tacos I substituted the mushrooms for avocados and baked my sweet potatoes rather than broiling them on the stovetop.

These tacos are perfect for either lunch and dinner!

Sweet Potato Tacos

  1. Preheat oven to 200 C/400 F.
  2. In a lasagne dish, combine the sweet potatoes, garlic, shallots, spices and olive oil. Mix well, ensuring everything is covered in olive oil. Bake in the oven for 30 – 35 minutes, so that the sweet potatoes can easily be pierced with a fork.
  3. Build your tacos! I like to first toast my wraps, then add the sweet potatoes, avocado, and red cabbage slaw and enjoy!

Red Cabbage Slaw

  1. Mix all ingredients together and let set for at least 10 minutes to allow flavors to marinate.
