Grilled California Sweetpotatoes

Grilling? Add grilled sweetpotatoes to the menu-they go great with burgers, steaks, chops, chicken, you name it! (NAPS)

(NAPSI)—The next time you’re firing up the outdoor grill (or indoor grill pan, for that matter), throw on a sweetpotato or two. An easy, healthy side dish with a huge wow factor, grilled sweetpotatoes are nutrient rich, high in fiber and absolutely delicious. And they go great with burgers, steaks, chops, chicken or pretty much anything off the grill.

Start with this basic recipe, and if you’re feeling creative, try different shapes—sweetpotato coins or steak fries, for example. Or add your favorite herbs and spices—such as chopped fresh rosemary, thyme, cinnamon or smoked paprika.

Grilled Sweetpotatoes

Serves 3 or 4

1 lb orange- or yellow/white-fleshed sweetpotatoes, cut lengthwise into ¾-inch wedges

1 ½ Tbsp olive oil

1 tsp salt, plus more for sprinkling

Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine sweetpotatoes, oil and salt. Arrange sweetpotatoes on the grill or grill pan and cook until lightly charred and tender, 6 to 8 minutes, turning halfway through. Sprinkle with more salt and serve.
