Sweet Potato Tacos

July 4, 2018

Tacos at our house are a Scrounge dinnertime staple. Each time I cook tacos they are slightly different depending on what I have at home. To be honest, in this instance I was planning to make salmon tacos (Salmon Tacos recipe to come soon!), but the salmon didn't turn out very well so... it was time to Scrounge! I happened to be baking sweet potatoes in the oven as a side to the tacos, so I decided to make to veggie tacos. These veggie tacos turned out so delicious, even my husband, a meat lover, enjoyed these! Try being creative with what you have at home to make some healthy tacos, I promise you won't be disappointed. 

 

Ingredients: 

  • Tortillas -  I love any of the Siete tortillas! They have almond flour,  cassava and coconut   and cassava and chia shells. They are all great healthy options! 

  • 1 Sweet potato 

  • 1 Avocado 

  • Greek yogurt 

  • Hot sauce (optional) - I love Valentina 

  • Crumbled goat cheese (crumbled feta would be yummy too) 

  • Arugula (or any type of lettuce you have at home) 

  • Salsa  

  • Olive oil 

  • Sea Salt 

  • Pepper

  • Rosemary (optional)

Preparation: 

 

Sweet Potatoes

  1. Preheat oven to 425°

  2. Slice sweet potatoes on an angle similar to the shape of fries 

  3. Place sweet potatoes on baking sheet 

  4. Cover sweet potatoes with olive oil, sea salt, pepper and rosemary (if using) 

  5. Use hands to coat sweet potatoes 

  6. Bake in oven for 25 minutes 

  7. Let cool for a few minutes before placing into taco 

Tacos

  1. While sweet potatoes are cooking begin prepping the taco ingredients 

  2. Heat up the tortilla in microwave for 8-10 seconds or over the stove top 

  3. Spread greek yogurt on shell 

  4. Spread a few slices of avocado on top of yogurt 

  5. If using hot sauce splash a little onto the avocado and yogurt and spread together (FYI this may not look the prettiest  color :) 

  6. Add the sweet potatoes on top (feel free to smash them a little) 

  7. Top with arugula, crumbled goat cheese and salsa 

  8. Enjoy! 

* 2 tacos per person is usually very filling 

 

The Scrounge: 

 

If you don't have these exact ingredients, Scrounge with the things you have at home! if you don't have arugula – use spinach or romaine or do without. If you don't have greek yogurt  – use sour cream, a non diary alternative, or spreadable goat cheese. If you don't have salsa – slice up some tomatoes or use pico de gallo. If you don't have goat cheese – use feta, or any other sprinkle cheese you have at home or take a grater to a cheese block and shred some onto the taco. You may end up creating something even better!
