Roasted Sweet Potato with Caramelized Onion Wraps

This recipe was off of Thekitchn, when they did an article on the different lunch options as well as different recipes using sweet potatoes. I LOVE sweet potatoes. The sweetness just can’t be beat, but it isn’t too overpowering either. I used spinach tortillas here, and then as an added bonus I used my Redi Set Go (yes As Seen on TV) to toast up the outside. The filling was a multi-step process, perhaps because I had so much filling it needed to roast a lot longer than listed. Even still the potatoes never quite got soft enough for me but I was impatient and wanted to eat. The pesto was from my local CM, but I wonder if it just was too potent. The garlic aftertaste was really strong and almost bitter, and it doesn’t send me grabbing for these wraps as eagerly as I thought I would. The concept was great, all the ingredients are ones that I love, I think the garlic though is tough to handle during the day when you are around others. I wonder if there might be another type of sauce that would be less “offensive” to others that could be substituted.

I think I would try this recipe again, but I think I would have to do something that counteracted the garlicky smell. While I personally do not mind garlic, I have to be considerate about those around me. No one likes to be around stinky people. I hate having the lingering raw garlic aftertaste in my mouth too.. I might also try different veggies/ingredients, and definitely roast those sweet potatoes so they are the consistency I like.
