What a colourful side dish! A touch of honey and a snip of chives are its flavourful partners.
June 5, 2013

Ingredients

  • 2 medium dark-orange sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) honey
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) seasoned salt
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped fresh chives

Steps

  • 1
    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Cut 18x18-inch piece of heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray. Place sweet potatoes and bell pepper on centre of foil.
  • 2
    Mix butter, honey and seasoned salt in small bowl. Drizzle over potato mixture; stir to mix. Fold foil over vegetables so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for circulation and expansion.
  • 3
    Cover and grill packet over medium heat 15 to 20 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender. Place packet on serving platter. Cut large X across top of packet; unfold foil. Sprinkle with chives.

  • Success: For the best flavour, buy sweet potatoes that are dark orange in colour. Because they don't store well, keep them in a cool, dry, dark place for up to one week. They should not be refrigerated.
  • Success: For easy preparation, make these sweet potatoes in a disposable foil pan. Just cover with foil, then grill according to the recipe.
