Sweet Potato Fries


  • 2 sweet potatoes scrubbed and dried well!
  • 2 tsp olive oil

Instructions:  Preheat grill to medium-high. Cook sweet potatoes in microwave on high until crisp-tender when pierced with a knife (6 – 7 minutes). Cool on cutting board for about 15 minutes. Cut each sweet potato lengthwise in 8 wedges. Transfer to a cooking sheet (or a large plate) and drizzle with the olive oil, paprika (seasoning) and pepper. Toss to coat. Grill wedges about 3 minutes per side until they are fully cooked and slightly charred. Season with salt.
