- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). If desired, keep the skin on the potatoes as we did for extra crispiness and fibre. Cut the sweet potatoes into wedges.
- In a large bowl, combine the oil, miso, sambal, maple syrup, and ginger. Use a fork to mix.
- Add the sweet potato wedges to the bowl and toss to coat.
- Transfer the coated sweet potatoes to a lined baking tray and roast for 35 - 40 minutes, or until tender and golden on the edges*.
- To make the tahini mayo, add all the ingredients to a small bowl and mix to combine.
- Serve the potato wedges with the tahini mayo. Garnish as desired. Enjoy!
- * Optional tip: once the potatoes are cooked, turn on the broiler and broil for 1 - 2 minutes, or until the potatoes are crispy and golden.
- Best enjoyed fresh out of the oven.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Tested it tofday, so yammy ! I added carrots with sweet potatoes and it was perfect !
I was looking for a way to change up my roasted veg and this was perfect.
Loved it 👌
Making them right now. Smells Devine! I bought sweet potatoes today and remembered how much we loved, loved loved these potatoes. So simple, but exceptional flavor! You really should try them…you’ll be impressed!
I brought these to a family birthday dinner a few months back and now they’re requested at EVERY family event. The potatoes are delicious and the sauce is complex and creamy and salty and spicy - haha, more or less perfect.
I love this recipe! Just wondering: is there a specific type of miso you would recommend?
For instance, is it better to have white miso (lighter taste) or would you recommend a red miso or koji miso (more umami taste)?
Apologies for the nitty picking, I just wondered what was the intended type (to be the most faithful to the original taste).
Again, love this recipe!
I have made these countless times. They are absolutely scrumptious!
Delicious! Great flavors. I really recommend to try this recipe, super easy, and really tasty <3
These are easily the best snack I've had in a while! I added salt, which I think really brought out the flavours more, but it would be totally fine without it too. I also added some roasted garlic to the mayo and loved it! My only note is that I cut the recipe down since I only had one medium sweet potato and I think it could've done with more marinade. So, so delicious!
As a swede, I was naturally suspicious about using maple syrup (not common at all in savoury dishes, only sometimes for sweets, honey is predominantly used)
I must confess that it actually enhanced the earthiness of the sweet potatoes. So did the salty miso paste. Nevertheless, I had to put a little bit of salt for flavour balancing. Baking time and temperature were absolutely perfect 👌🏻 Crispy peel and surface, a soft core that almost melted whilst eating
