Number of Servings: 8


    1lb yams, peeled & cut into 1 to 2 in. chunks
    2 tsp. chopped fresh ginger
    2 Tbsp. white (shiro) miso
    1 1/2 Tbsp. tahini
    2 tsp. light soy sauce
    2 Tbsp. thinly sliced green onion tops
    1 1/2 tsp. toasted sesame seeds


1. Steam sweet potatoes in a large saucepan with a steamer basket and 1 in. water until very tender, about 20 minutes. (No steamer? - simmer in water, stirring occasionally.) Drain, reserving liquid and let cool slightly.
2. Whirl ginger in a food processor to mince. Add sweet potatoes, miso, tahini, soy sauce and enough reserved sweet potato liquid for a creamy texture, about 3 Tbsp.; whirl until smooth.
3. Transfer dip to a bowl and stir in 11/2 Tbsp green onion. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 Tbsp. onions and the sesame seeds. Serve slightly warm or at room temp with baby bok choy leaves or cucumber slices.
Make ahead: Up to 2 days, chilled

Personal notes: I made this the day before and I think that was important to get all the flavors to marry. Also, I think small endive leaves would make a good dip picker-upper. The "bite" of the endive would work well with the sweetness of the dip + purple endive would look good with the orange dip.
