Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Let's start grilling season right with this easy-to-make recipe from our friends at Whole Foods. Grilled sweet potatoes are a wonderfully delicious substitution for fries or roasted potatoes made with oil. Keep an eye on the grill so the potatoes get tender with just a little bit of char and not burnt.


  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ pound sweet potatoes (1 large or 2 medium), sliced lengthwise in ½-inch-thick slices


In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, vinegar, honey, cilantro, shallot and pepper until blended.

Prepare the grill for medium-heat cooking.

Brush sweet potatoes on both sides with dressing. Place sweet potatoes on the grill. Grill, covered, about 6 minutes on each side or until tender and charred. To serve, slice in strips and drizzle with remaining dressing.
