Serves: 4

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • Adobo Dipping Sauce (recipe follows)

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat.

In a medium bowl, combine the sweet potatoes, oil, paprika, coriander, cumin, salt, and pepper, and toss until the sweet potatoes are well coated. Spread out the sweet potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet.

Roast for 45 to 50 minutes, or until cooked through and browned. Keep them warm in a 200°F oven until ready to serve. Serve with Adobo Dipping Sauce.

Adobo Dipping Sauce

  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 1/2 cups vegan mayo
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce (see Note)
