Ingredients
  • 2 large or 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • 4 Tbsp. tamari
  • 3 Tbsp. sake, mirin, or white wine
  • 2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. chives, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. ginger, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees (or a grill).
  2. Place sweet potatoes directly on the oven/grill grate (put a pie tin on the rack under them to catch drippings in the oven) & roast until soft when squeezed, 30-40 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, whisk together remaining ingredients until sugar is dissolved.
  4. Cool sweet potatoes just enough to handle & cut each one in half cross-wise.
  5. Serve with individual bowls of dipping sauce.
