MMMMMM….. Purple Sweet Potatoes. I discovered these tasty treats while I was in China this summer. They were a staple at the breakfast buffet. Being a vegan, I loved that this was one of the options and smothered my potatoes with greens and peanut butter. A side of Miso soup rounded out the meal. YUM! My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
Back in the States, I’ve had a difficult time finding Purple Sweet Potatoes, until this past week. Now I see them everywhere. It must be the season! I picked up a bag at Trader Joe’s for about $3.
About that Tahini-Miso Combination. This is my new favorite condiment combo!! I’m loving it as a salad dressing or a topping for spiralized veggies.

A side note about these muffins: One of my friends tried one and thought they could use a tad bit more sweetener. I thought these were delicious as is, lol. So, I added a note in the recipe to taste-test the batter before baking. Add sweetener as desired. A little Maple Syrup perhaps?? You decide:)
