  • 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • ½ tsp. grated lime zest, plus more for garnish (optional)

Really tasty and easy to make! The miso added a delicious Asian flare to the sweet potatoes. I served it with carrots, cucumbers, and rice crackers. My 5 year old was gobbling it up so I'll probably make it again.
