Wrap n’ Bake Sweet Potato Knish

Wrap n’ Bake Sweet Potato Knish

If you haven’t eaten a knish yet, what are you waiting for?! Its only the best Jewish street food ever created (imo)- it’s essentially a dumpling stuffed with savory/& or sweet goodness. In this recipe, mashed sweet potatoes are combined with caramelized onions,spinach & warming/sweet spices. 

For ease & convenience, the filling is wrapped in a store bought whole wheat soft tortilla instead of the traditional homemade wrapper. A knish makes a perfect snack, app, lunch, or even a light dinner with soup & salad. I used a tahini dressing to go with and it was perfect
