Looking for a finger food that’s as nutritious as it is delicious? These grilled sweet potato fries will fit the bill.
They’re easy to whip up and a scrumptious dish with a char-grilled flavor. Since sweet potatoes are dense, these are simmered before grilling to get started, which also makes peeling them quick and effortless. Plus, the garlic chive aioli gives them that extra savory oomph and takes less than a minute to make.
Whether served for a weeknight meal or at a backyard barbecue with your favorite Paleo burger, they are sure to be a hit!
Grilled Sweet Potato Fries with Garlic Chive Aioli
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 2 T olive oil
- 1 t ground cumin
- 1/2 cup Paleo mayonnaise
- 2 T minced chives
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 t lemon juice
- Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
How To Make It:
1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the sweet potatoes, turn the heat down to a simmer, and cook until easily pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes. Remove from pot, peel (the skin should slip off easily) and let sit until cool enough to handle. Cut into wedges.
2. Pre-heat a gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat. Brush the wedges with olive oil and sprinkle with the cumin.
3. Place wedges on the grill for 10-15 minutes, or until tender and lightly charred on both sides.
4. Before serving, make the aioli by mixing the Paleo mayo, garlic, chives, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with the fries.
