  • 2 medium-sized Kumara Beauregard, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (or tamari for a gluten-free option)
  • 2 tablespoons mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Sesame seeds and sliced green onions, for garnish
  • Cooked rice or quinoa, for serving


Prepare the Kumara:
Peel the Kumara Beauregard and cut them into 1-inch cubes. Rinse them under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.

Make the Teriyaki Sauce:
In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, mirin, honey or maple syrup, rice vinegar, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Set aside.

Sauté the Kumara:

Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the cubed Kumara and sauté for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the Kumara starts to brown and become tender.

Add the Teriyaki Sauce:

Pour the prepared teriyaki sauce over the sautéed Kumara in the skillet. Stir well to coat the Kumara evenly with the sauce.

Simmer and Glaze:

Reduce the heat to medium-low and let the Kumara simmer in the teriyaki sauce for another 5-7 minutes, or until the sauce thickens and glazes the Kumara cubes. Stir occasionally to ensure the Kumara is well-coated and absorbs the flavors.


Remove the skillet from the heat. Transfer the teriyaki-glazed Kumara to a serving dish. Sprinkle sesame seeds and sliced green onions on top for garnish.


Serve the teriyaki-glazed Kumara over cooked rice or quinoa. Garnish with additional sesame seeds and green onions if desired. Enjoy this delicious and flavorful dish as a satisfying main course or a delightful side dish!
