Roasted Sweet Potato Tacos

Tacos are one of my favorite things to make in the Summer!  There is nothing like enjoying some spicy tacos and enjoying a refreshing margarita on the patio!  These ones contain sweet and savory sweet potatoes roasted to bring out their flavor, along with black beans and our special salsa for a delicious combination!  These make for a healthy, flavorful and satisfying vegan summer meal!

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.  Toss the sweet potatoes with just enough oil to coat, and spread them out on an oiled sheet pan.  Roast them for about 35 minutes until starting to brown and tender.
  2. Meanwhile, sauté the onion in the olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat until translucent, about 5 minutes.  Add the garlic, beans, spices, and sea salt and cook a few minutes more.  When the yams have finished roasting, toss them with this mixture.
  3. To assemble the tacos, spoon some of the sweet potato and black bean mixture onto each shell, then some of the salsa, then some avocado.  Serve!
