Recipe Thursday-Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Posted on August 19th, 2010 | Posted in Recipes, Side Dish

I love sweet potatoes and I love grilling so I went ahead and combined the two- grilled sweet potatoes. They did not disappoint my expectations!!  The flavor that the grill gives to all vegetables is so unique and appealing to my personal palate.  This was a fairly simple recipe, however the first step of boiling the potatoes did take longer than I expected…though it was well worth the wait!  I served these fries as a side to grilled Hippey Hot Dogs and fresh watermelon from a local roadside produce stand.

Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Serves 4


3 sweet potatoes, unpeeled
Kosher salt (CQS030)
2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest
Pinch of cayenne pepper (CQC017)
1/4 cup canola oil (992013)
Ground pepper (CQP065)
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro


Parcook the potatoes: Place in a pot of water and boil until fork-tender; let cool. Slice each potato lengthwise into eighths.

Preheat a grill to medium or place a cast-iron grill pan over medium heat. Mix 1 teaspoon salt, the lime zest and cayenne in a small bowl.

Brush the potato wedges with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until golden brown on all sides (including the skin) and just cooked through, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter; immediately season with the salt mixture and sprinkle with cilantro.

Recipe Thursday-Summer in a Casserole

Posted on August 12th, 2010 | Posted in Casserole, Main Course, Recipes

This recipe was too good not to pass along and perfect because all of these Summer vegetables are in season right now!  I was able to pull 4 cups of ripe cherry tomatoes out of our garden, just before making this recipe Tuesday night.  Also, we still have our Portofino Pasta’s on special so you can utilize them in a new recipe.
