Sweet Potato Tacos

Y’all know what the second best day of the week is?

It’s in strong contention for first but since most of us gotta work the next day it ain’t taking the gold medal.

But outside of that Taco Tuesday might as well be a global holiday. It’s only right to have another recipe that can be used for the festivities.

Originally I got this idea from a HelloFresh box (definitely not a plug they ain’t payin me) but I was using the veggie plan and this was one of the recipes. After making it once I figured this is something I could veganize without too much effort.

The key in the recipe is two things, the sauce, because sauce is always important. Ain’t that right Gucci.

And the way you cook the potatoes. Now I personally prefer a little bit of crisp and crunch to my potatoes, so they’re baked in the oven for a little while. If you’re one who favors more of a soft texture feel free to cook them for a shorter time.
