A simple spice rub makes a tasty complement to grilled sweet potatoes. Serve alongside grilled pork, chicken or other vegetables.
Ingredients: 
  • 4 medium sweet potatoes (about 3 pounds), scrubbed well
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Method: 
Cover potatoes with cold salted water in a large pot, then bring to a boil. Simmer until slightly resistant when pierced with a sharp small knife, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain well. When cool, slice potatoes lengthwise.

Preheat the grill for medium heat cooking and lightly oil the rack. Mix together salt, spices and apple cider vinegar; add oil in a slow stream. Brush mixture on sweet potatoes. 

Grill potatoes until grill marks appear and potatoes are cooked through, about 15 minutes.
