Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges

  • FAST

A hinged grilling basket makes cooking the potato wedges easier.

  1. 2 pounds medium sweet potatoes, cut lengthwise into 6 wedges each
  2. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  3. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  4. Large pinch of cayenne pepper
  1. Light the grill. In a large saucepan of boiling, salted water, simmer the potatoes until almost tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, transfer to a large bowl and toss with the olive oil, salt, black pepper and cayenne. Grill over moderate heat for about 15 minutes, turning, until tender and lightly charred. Serve warm.
