Red miso adds a savory twist to sweet potatoes.


  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tbsp. red miso
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 14 cup minched chives

In a small food processor, combine the butter with the miso, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon of water and purée until evenly combined.
