4 tablespoons instant white miso or miso paste slightly thinned with water

Coconut oil, for cooking

When the oil is hot, add the sweet potatoes and sear on one side until dark brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and repeat on the other side, cooking until tender, about 5 minutes more. Evenly spoon the remaining miso on top of each piece of potato and cook for 1 minute more. Serve immediately.
  3. Cook¿s Note: If you find that the potatoes are not cooked through, finish cooking them in the oven at 350 degrees F until tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
