These tacos are loaded with fonio, roasted sweet potatoes, chickpeas, and drizzled with a fresh mint yogurt sauce.

Have you ever tried fonio? Well, if you haven't, this recipe is the perfect introduction. Fonio is a grain cultivated in Africa, it's smaller in size than quinoa and has a nutty and earthy flavor.

 1 small sweet potato (about 2 cups diced)
 1 15-ounce (425g) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
 1 tbsp (15ml) maple syrup
 1 tbsp (15ml) olive oil
 1 tsp berbere spice blend (see notes)
 1 tbsp (15ml) oil
 1 leek, minced
 ½ cup fonio (or use quinoa)
 2 cups (470ml) water
 3 tbsp tomato paste
 1 and ½ tsp berbere spice
 6 taco shells (or small tortillas)
Mint Yogurt Sauce
 ⅓ cup (100g) non-dairy unsweetened yogurt
 1 tbsp (15ml) lemon juice
 ¼ tsp salt
 3-4 fresh mint leaves, finely minced
To make your own berbere spice blend, mix together:
  3 tablespoon ground chili
 3 tablespoon smoked paprika
 1 tsp garlic powder
 ½ tsp ground ginger
 ½ tsp ground cardamom
 ½ tsp ground coriander
 ½ tsp turmeric
 ½ tsp ground fenugreek
 ½ tsp dried basil
 ¼ tsp cinnamon
 ¼ tsp ground cumin
