If you don’t think these Tahini and Sweet Potato Wedges are good, that’s fine, but you’re wrong and I hate you.

Okay, fine -- maybe Adam didn't say that about this recipe. 

I don't know how I've managed to go this long in life without experiencing the beauty in my mouth that was these baked, soft sweet potatoes with the melt-in-your-mouth texture of tahini. The recipe is simple enough, too.
