Roasted Sweet Potatoes
1 large Sweet Potato, cut into wedges
1 tbsp Grapeseed Oil
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toss sweet potatoes in oil and seasonings. Spread out on sheet tray. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until tender.
Coconut Harissa Coleslaw
1 half head Red Cabbage (Green is fine substitute), cored and sliced thinly (you only need 1/2 because you end up a ton of coleslaw. Wrap the other half tightly and store in the refrigerator)
1 Carrot, peeled and shredded
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk, stir well
1/3 cup mayo or yogurt
1 tbsp PUR Spices Harissa Paste (add more for more heat, if desired)
1 tsp Granulated Sugar
1 tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
1 tbsp Cilantro, rough chopped
1 Lime, zested and juiced
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix cabbage and carrot in a bowl with a pinch of salt. Set aside. Mix coconut milk, mayo, harissa paste, sugar, vinegar and mustard in a separate bowl. Add coconut milk mixture to cabbage. Add cilantro and lime. Adjust seasoning.
Heat 4 Flour or Corn Tortillas. Add sweet potatoes and desired amount of coleslaw. Top with garnishes.
1/2 Red Onion, thinly sliced
