  • ¼ cup of vegan BBQ sauce (or more to taste)
  • 2-3 large yams or sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced (to make about 30 slices)
  • 2 cups of Mung bean sprouts, rinsed
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • ½ cup of crushed peanuts


  • Preheat oven to 400° F and line a baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper. Mix sprouts with BBQ sauce and set aside.
  • Slice sweet potatoes about ¼ inch thick, lay out on baking sheet, and roast in oven for 20-25 minutes. (If you cut them thicker, you may need to cook them a bit longer.)
  • Remove the baking tray and top the sweet potato slices with saucy sprouts. Bake for another 2-3 minutes. This will set the sauce and the topping will not slide around.When ready, top with chopped red onion, cilantro, and peanuts. Serve.


Not a fan of peanuts? Try sunflower seeds for crunch.
