Prepare Vegan Spicy Cilantro Sauce
- In a medium size mixing bowl add plain soy yogurt and nut cream.
- Stir until the mixture is smooth.
- Add jalapeno, cilantro, onion, garlic and salsa to your mixture.
- Mix all ingredients into your mixture.

* This sauce can be stored up to 2 days in your refrigerator.
- 6 Large sweet potatoes, cleaned, with skins intact
- 6 Large Russet potatoes, cleaned, with skins intact
- ¼ Cup olive oil
- Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
- Prepare and light your grill. (You can use a gas grill, but I find it works best over hot coals)
- Cut your sweet potatoes lengthwise into 8 pieces.
- Cut your russet potatoes lengthwise into 8 pieces.
- Place your cut sweet potatoes and russet potatoes on a rimmed baking dish with the skin side down.
- Brush all cut sides of your potatoes with olive oil.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- When the coals on your grill are gray, place the potato spears on the gill with the cut side down.
- Cook your potatoes for about 8 minutes, turning often, or until they are slightly charred in some spots and cooked through.
- Test the potato spears with the end of a knife or fork to see if they are soft and cooked through.
- Remove the potatoes from the grill and arrange them on a serving platter.
- Serve hot with the spicy cilantro dipping sauce.
