Steamed Sweet Potatoes With Tamari Ginger Sauce

Steaming is a quick and healthful way to prepare sweet potatoes. This side dish is especially nice accompanied by buckwheat or Soba noodles and grilled meat or tofu.


Serves four


  • 3 sweet potatoes, cut crosswise into ¾-inch thick slices
  • Juice of one orange
  • 1 tbs. tamari
  • ½ tsp. fresh grated ginger root


Slice sweet potatoes and place in a single layer in a steamer basket. Steam over simmering water for 10 to 15 minutes, until just tender. Mix the orange juice, tamari and ginger root together in a small bowl. Drizzle sauce over the steamed sweet potato slices and serve hot, at room temperature, or chilled.
