Having had success in the past by reducing carbs, I am always looking for ways to eliminate potatoes in my everyday diet. Sure, I am not going to pass up Gorgonzola mashed potatoes if offered, but I would like to keep French fries as far away as possible. Sweet potatoes are an ideal replacement for potato fries; they have so many health benefits – from being high in vitamin B6, C & D, as well as containing significant amounts of iron, magnesium and beta carotene. Try these with your kids and see what you think.
|Grilled Cheddar Sausage Dog is optional!|
- 3 medium sweet potatoes, unpeeled
- ¼ cup Pastamoré Jalapeno Oil
- Kosher salt
- freshly ground pepper
- drizzle of Pastamoré Traditional Balsamic Vinegar
Parcook the potatoes; place in a pot of water and boil until fork-tender – about 10 to 15 minutes; let cool. Slice each potato lengthwise into eighths and place in large bowl. Add Jalapeno Oil and toss carefully to cover. Season with salt & pepper.
Preheat a grill to medium or place a cast-iron grill pan over medium heat.
Grill until golden brown on all (three) sides (including the skin) and just cooked through, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Don’t worry if the skin burns, it will taste great. Transfer to a platter; immediately season with additional salt if desired. Arrange three wedges on the plate, drizzle with Traditional Balsamic Vinegar and serve.
Serves 4 as a side.
