Grilled Sweet Potatoes #BBQWeek


This week, Ellen of Family Around the Table and Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures have us sharing recipes for the grill. This is one of my favorite blogging weeks of the year! I love prepping food and handing it off to Jake to grill for me.




Grilled Sweet Potatoes Recipe

So, I already mentioned that I had off the prepped food to my husband. I actually did all of my week's recipes on Mothers' Day; I figured that was perfect because he was doing all the work...and I could relax while he grilled. The downside: I was inside reading a book and neglected to get process photos. "Did you take any photos?" I asked when I came outside.

Ummm...no. Why would I?

"Because these are for a post," I almost wailed.

Nope.

Ugh. So sorry, folks. No process photos of the grilling part.

Ingredients
  • 4 to 5 organic sweet potatoes, roasted until just fork tender
  • freshly ground sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 t sesame oil
  • 1 t sweet chili sauce

Procedure
Whisk together the olive oil, sesame oil, and sweet chili sauce. Set aside.

Slice the roasted sweet potatoes in half, lengthwise and brush with the sauce. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Grill the sweet potatoes: Once the grill is hot, lay the sweet potato pieces, cut side-down. onto the grill grates. Cover the grill and cook until each side gets some grill marks, approximately 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Serve hot.

  1. I love grilled sweet potatoes. I usually cut them into planks so I get lots of caramelized goodness and they cook faster. Not having photos is a small price to pay for having Jake make the entire weeks worth of recipes!!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
