  • cooking spray

  • 2 sweet potatoes, halved lengthwise

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

  • ¼ cup diced sweet onion

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root

  • 1 tablespoon white (shiro) miso

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 scallion, sliced


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.

  2. Brush cut sides of sweet potatoes with olive oil. Lay cut side-down onto the baking sheet. Brush skins with olive oil.

  3. Roast in the preheated oven until cooked through, about 35 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, prepare miso-scallion butter. Warm coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and ginger and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and add miso, pressing miso against the saucepan with the back of a spoon to soften. Add soy sauce, brown sugar, and scallion.

  5. Heat over low, stirring constantly, until sugar is completely melted and mixture is warmed through, about 3 minutes. Do not boil.

  6. Remove sweet potatoes from the oven and flip over. Cut a slit into the sweet potato flesh and spoon miso butter over the top.

Cook's Note:

Sub the coconut oil with butter or ghee if desired.
