Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes:
1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Transfer to a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 21 to 23 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

While the sweet potatoes roast, cut off and discard the stem ends of the brussels sprouts; quarter lengthwise. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Drain and rinse the beans.

3 Roast the brussels sprouts:

While the sweet potatoes continue to roast, line a separate sheet pan with foil. Place the quartered brussels sprouts in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; stir to coat. Transfer to the sheet pan and arrange in an even layer.

If using the microwave, wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave on high 1 minute, or until heated through.
