3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks

4 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil, divided

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons

1 tablespoon mirin

1/2 tablespoon sugar

2 tablespoons water

2 scallions, white and light-green parts only, thinly sliced

Shichimi togarashi, for garnish


Place sweet potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Heat water to 160 degrees F as registered on an instant-read thermometer. Cover and set aside for 1 hour. Adjust oven racks to upper-middle and lower-middle positions and preheat oven to 400 degrees F . Drain sweet potatoes and transfer to a large bowl. Toss with 3 tablespoons oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Spread sweet potatoes on 2 rimmed baking sheets and roast until bottom sides are browned, about 30 minutes. Carefully flip potatoes with a thin spatula and roast until second side is browned and potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes longer. Keep potatoes warm. When ready to serve, in a large mixing bowl, whisk together miso, mirin, sugar, water, and remaining 1 tablespoon oil until smooth. Add potatoes and gently toss to coat. Fold in scallions and transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with shichimi togarashi, if using, and serve.
