A quick, easy, delicious recipe to use this week’s Sweet Potatoes!
- 2 medium sweet potatoes (1 3/4 pound), scrubbed and dried
- 2 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
1. Preheat grill to medium-high. Meanwhile, cook sweet potatoes in a microwave on HIGH heat until crisp-tender when pierced with a knife, 6 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board until cool enough to handle (15 minutes).
2. Cut potatoes lengthwise into 8 wedges. Transfer potatoes to a sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil; sprinkle with paprika and pepper and toss to coat. Grill 3 minutes per side or until potatoes are charred and fully cooked; season with salt.
