Hot Potato

The other night I grilled sweet potatoes for the first time and they were so good! They were part of  the kids kitchen takeover. They made Cafe Gratitude inspired I am Mucho bowls. The bowls consisted of cilantro rice, cuban beans, grilled portobello mushrooms, sautéed kale, guacamole, creamy salsa, and grilled sweet potatoes. 

Music is a must for me in the kitchen. Thought you might enjoy a link to my most recent playlist. Julesee Spotify playlist

Grilled Sweet Potatoes


  • sweet potatoes
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • olive oil
  • cilantro 

 Let your grill heat to medium heat. While the grill is heating up cut your potatoes on a diagonal about a 1/4 inch-thick pieces. Coat the sweet potato slices with olive oil.  Once the grill is hot lay the sweet potato pieces down onto the grill grates. Cover the grill and cook until each side gets some grill marks (and the potatoes begin to soften), between 3-6 minutes for each side, depending on how hot your grill is. Once your sweet potatoes are done drizzle with olive, salt & pepper, and sprinkle with cilantro. You can also sprinkle with cumin for a little extra flavor.
