Soy-Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Randy Mayor
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 3 wedges)
This side dish takes minutes to get ready for the oven and only an hour to bake. Choose plump, round sweet potatoes--they cut handsomely into wedges. When they're done, they should be practically lacquered with the glaze.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin (sweet rice wine)
  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 sweet potatoes, each cut lengthwise into 4 wedges (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
