Roasted Sweet Potato Tacos are easy to make, vegan and so delicious! This simple recipe is made with just 7 ingredients in 30 minutes, making it the perfect weeknight meal. This is one of my all time favorites and I can tell you I make these just about every week.

You are about to be in taco heaven!

Ingredient Notes:

  • Sweet Potatoes – I like Red Garnet sweet potatoes for this recipe. Something like a Jewel Sweet Potato will work as well.
  • Olive Oil – Any neutral tasting oil will work. If you wan’t to make these oil-free you can. Just simply use parchment paper and follow the same instructions. Keep in mind they won’t get quite as roasted.
  • Ground Coriander – This is a super unique flavor and it compliments the sweet potatoes well. If you do not have any on hand you could also use cumin.
  • Spices – The onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper add a nice savory flavor to the sweet potato. Make sure to use all the spices listed!
  • Fixings – Serve with whatever taco fixings you like best. These are great on flour or corn tortillas.

Variations:

  • Gluten-free – To make these gluten-free you can simply use corn tortillas.
  • Black Beans – I love adding black beans to these tacos. If you have time to whip some up they are a great addition. My Slow Cooker Black Beans are my go to easy recipe.
  • Spicy – To make these tacos spicy you could add cayenne to the sweet potatoes or some jalapeño on top. Something like Soyrizo (Vegan Chorizo) would also be an amazing addition!
  • Veggies – Feel free to add all of your favorite sautéed veggies to these tacos. I tend to make a fajita style veggie blend when I want to add veggies to my tacos. Things like bell peppers, squash, onion and spinach are great.
How To Store:

Store any leftover roasted sweet potato in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
