  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice-wine vinegar (not seasoned)

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds

  2. Make the sweet potato wedges: Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Toss sweet potatoes with oil and salt in a large bowl. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet.
