Sweet Potato with A La Oil

IMG_0291.JPG

This is a simple recipe that is perfect for when hunger comes out of no where. I like to always keep some sweet potatoes on hand and then make them extra delicious with my sesame tamari sauce. The sesame powder I add on top is that extra little crunch and a pop of protein. The best part is to make a larger batch and store the sesame powder in the fridge for later use. I love to add it on top of roasted veggies or even a fresh green salad.

Sesame Tamari Sauce Ingredients

½ cup      Barlean’s flax oil, and/or EVOO
¼ cup      tamari soy sauce (low sodium best) – or Celtic sea salt
½ cup      ground hulled sesame seeds – sesame powder
or if you do not like soy sauce, use Celtic Sea Salt – Grey Find Ground.

To make the delicious sesame powder, I put white hulled sesame seeds in coffee grinder or blender and grind into a powder.

Next I cook vegetables of my choice. This sauce is excellent on Swiss chard, cooked beets and carrots, yams and sweet potatoes, and all other veggies.

First sprinkle sesame seeds evenly on top of cooked vegetables. Pour the oil as evenly as possible over the top of the vegetables followed by the tamari.  Salt is best on the yams and sweet potatoes.

If you are using a leafy green such as chard, knead mixture into chard, slightly stirring sesame seeds, oil and tamari to form a sauce. And just like that you have a hearty lunch filled with good healthy fats!
