Grilled Sweet Potatoes


1 ½ cups balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons honey

2 sweet potatoes (not peeled), cut into ½-inch rounds

Olive oil for brushing

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tablespoon parsley, chopped

Try these with crumbled blue cheese or gorgonzola on top.


  1. In a small pot over medium-high heat, combine vinegar and honey. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until reduced by half. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. Prepare a charcoal grill for medium-high heat. Brush sweet potato rounds with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill sweet potatoes for 6 to 8 minutes per side, rotating them a quarter turn halfway through each side. Remove from grill, drizzle with balsamic glaze, and sprinkle with parsley.
