Roasted Sweet Potato, Avocado and Caramelized Onion Tacos with Cilantro-Lime Crema

Sometimes I enjoy a good meatless meal. With my background as a vegan/vegetarian chef, I love making meals like this because they're chock full of nutrients, but also naturally delicious. These tacos would also be great served as an appetizer! If you want them to be completely vegan, simply make a cashew sour cream using raw cashews, cider vinegar, fresh lemon juice and salt. 
 

1. Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with foil. Toss the sweet potato with chili powder, onion powder, salt and 1 tablespoon of olive oil and place in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Roast 20 minutes. 



2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onion, stirring often, until caramelized. Season with salt and pepper. 


3. While the onions cook, combine the crema ingredients in a small bowl. 


4. To assemble your tacos, place 2 warmed tortillas on each plate and top with sweet potato, avocado and caramelized onion. Drizzle with crema and serve.
