Sandwich by Connoisseurus Veg | Serves: 2 | Time: ~ 40 min
So 40 min for the sandwiches, but very little active time. That's why I'm calling it Quick and Easy.
For the Roasted #SweetPotatoes
1 tbsp sriracha
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp EVO
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
1 medium sweet potato scrubbed and sliced into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick slabs
Dash of salt
For the Cilantro Lime Mayo (make the night before)
1/2 cup raw #cashews soaked in hot water (about 5 min) , drained, rinses
4 tbsp lime juice
4 tbsp fresh cilantro or more if you like, packed
1 tbsp water
salt to taste
For the Sandwiches
4 slices sandwich bread toasted
Handful of spinach
1 small tomato, sliced
Roast the Sweet Potato
Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly oil or line a baking sheet with parchment.
Stir sriracha, maple syrup, lime juice, olive oil and liquid smoke together in small bowl.
Arrange sweet potato slabs on baking sheet and brush with about 1/4 of sriracha mixture. Bake 15 minutes. Flip, brush with another 1/4 of sriracha mixture, reserving the remaining half, and bake another 15 minutes, until tender. Remove from oven and sprinkle lightly with salt.
Make the Cilantro Lime Mayo
While sweet potato slices roast, place all ingredients into food processor bowl and blend until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.
Assemble the Sandwiches
Slather bread slices with cilantro lime mayo and stuff with sweet potato slabs, lettuce leaves and tomato slices. Drizzle with reserved sriracha mixture.
