These potatoes. THESE POTATOES. I can't get enough. They are unreal: sweet, spicy, savoury and filling, and everything I ever want in potatoes. They just might be my new favourite recipe! You should definitely make them tonight. Maybe share them, or don't. No judgement :P

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. If desired, keep the skin on the potatoes as we did for extra crispiness and fibre. Cut the sweet potatoes into wedges.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the sesame oil, miso paste, sambal, maple syrup, and ginger. Use a fork to mash and mix to combine. Add the sweet potato wedges and toss to coat.
  4. Transfer the coated sweet potatoes to a parchment-lined baking tray and roast for 35 - 40 minutes, or until fork-tender and golden on the edges. Tip: if desired, once the potatoes are baked, crisp them up a bit more by turning on the broiler and broiling for 1 - 2 minutes, until the potatoes are crispy and golden.
  5. To make the tahini mayo, add all the ingredients to a small bowl and mix to combine.


  • Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Best if reheated in the oven.

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
