Spiced Sweet Potatoes with Green Onion Vinaigrette

From “The Whole Foods Cookbook”

The sweetness of the potatoes perfectly complements this punchy green onion dressing. A great twist on a Thanksgiving tradition. 

Serves 4

  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons white wine
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 green onion, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 tarragon sprig, minced
  • 1 small garlic clove, cut into thin strips
  • 1 teaspoon Mum’s Spice Blend (see below) or other spice blend of
    your choice
  • Parsley sprigs, for garnish

Steam sweet potatoes in a covered steamer basket over gently simmering water until tender, 8 to 12 minutes. In a medium bowl, whisk together the vinegar, wine, mustard, green onion, tarragon, garlic and spice blend. Add the sweet potatoes and toss gently to coat. Garnish with parsley.

Note: To crisp up the potatoes, line a baking sheet with parchment and spread the dressed potatoes on the sheet. Broil until crispy, about 10 minutes.
