For the Smokey Sweet Potatoes
4 sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons high heat oil for roasting
salt, pepper and pepper flakes
dash of liquid smoke
For the Quick Pickle Carrots
1 cup water
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
For the Miso Mayo
2 tablespoons mayonaise
1 tablespoon white miso
1 teaspoon tamari or soy sauce
Start by making the quick pickle. Cut carrots and radishes into matchsticks. Bring water, vinegar, salt and sugar to a boil. Let cool for a minute. Pour liquid over the carrots and radishes into a clean jar with a lid. Cover and chill.
Peel and cut the sweet potatoes. Toss with spices, high heat oil and dash of liquid smoke. Bake in preheated oven at 400F for 10 to 15 minutes – or longer, until tender.
To make the miso mayo just mix up the ingredients, yay and yum!
Assemble sandwich as shown. Top with peanuts, cilantro and fresh squeeze of lime.
