These easy sweet potato tacos are a delicious vegetarian weeknight dinner that you can easily make vegan or gluten-free.

Ingredients

Avocado yogurt sauce

  • 1/2 cup whole milk Greek yogurt
  • 1 small avocado
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Sea salt & fresh black pepper

Optional toppings:

  • 1 small avocado, diced
  • 2 scallions, diced
  • Crumbled feta or Cotija cheese
  • Pickled onions
  • Microgreens or fresh cilantro

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400° F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Toss the sweet potatoes with olive oil, chili powder, salt and pepper, and spread onto the baking sheet. Roast for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Make the avocado yogurt sauce: In a small food processor, combine the yogurt, avocado, garlic, lime juice, and a few generous pinches of salt and pepper. Pulse until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings. Chill until ready to use.
  • Assemble the tacos with a scoop of the sauce, the roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, and desired toppings. Season with salt, pepper, and squeezes of lime.

Notes

Vegan option: Sub cashew cream for yogurt. Blend until creamy: 1/2 cup raw, unsalted cashews (soaked for at least 1 hour) with 1/2 cup water. (also, omit cheese)
Gluten free option: Sub GF corn tortillas
