sweet potato tacos recipe

I’m back- with vegetables, as promised! More specifically, vegan miso-maple sweet potato tacos, with coconut cilantro sauce! Going on the record to say, I am really pumped about these tacos. They were a snap to put together on this rainy tuesday night, which is always appreciated when I’m wiped out after work. [Tangent: it is worth remarking that it is 8:44 pm, and I am still wearing pants. Booyahhh!] They also happen to be really effing delicious and satisfying, and the perfect antidote to all of the beige I’ve been eating lately. Well, perhaps a small percentage of it, anyway…

I happened across this recipe on thekitchn, which is included at the tail end of a tour of the kitchen of the bloggers behind Love & Lemons. I adapted a few things, based on what I had on hand, and to scale it down to a meal fit for two. My very slightly tweaked version is below.
Love to you all!
