Vegan Sweet Potato Tacos

These Sweet Potato Tacos are perfect for sneakily eating more plant-based meals. 6 tacos serves 2 people!

Course Main Course
Servings 6 Tacos


  • 2 Sweet Potatoes
  • 2 tbsp Vegan Cream Cheese (or regular)
  • 6 Corn Tortillas
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 bunch Cilantro
  • 2 tsp Lawry's Chile Garlic Seasoning
  • 2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 Lime
  • Cooking Spray


  1. Wash your sweet potatoes, then poke holes in them using a fork.

  2. Place your sweet potatoes in the microwave. Use the microwave potato setting (make sure if you're cooking two to adjust the setting).

  3. While your potatoes are cooking, slice your avocado! I typically cut it in half, then cut each half into thirds. This way each taco gets a slice.

  4. When the microwave is almost finished, get your skillet hot on the stove.

  5. When your sweet potatoes are done, slice each one down the center and let them cool for a minute. Once they're okay to touch, scoop the insides out of one at a time (I usually cook three tacos at once). 

  6. Put the scooped potato into a small bowl (I use a ramekin), and mix in spices. The amounts listed are an estimate – you should spice to your own taste!

  7. Spray skillet with cooking spray and put three tortillas into the hot skillet. Once they are toasted on one side, flip.

  8. Spread a small amount of cream cheese onto each tortilla. I split 1 tablespoon up per 3 tortillas. 

  9. Add your sweet potato mush to each of the tortillas on the skillet.

  10. Add your avocado slices to each tortilla.

  11. Salt the avocado and squirt the tacos with lime!

  12. Take the three tortillas out of the skillet, then repeat for the remaining 3. Once they're all done, garnish with cilantro.
