Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Orange Maple Butter

Sweet potatoes can be boiled in advance and then kept in the fridge in their skins until you’re ready for them – a quick turn on the grill and they’re ready in under 5 minutes.

  • Makes: Serves 6.

Ingredients

3-4 small-medium dark fleshed sweet potatoes

olive or canola oil, for brushing

¼ cup butter

¼ cup pure maple syrup

finely grated zest of half an orange (a teaspoon or so)

Directions

1Put the potatoes whole into a large saucepan or small pot, cover with water and bring to a simmer. Cook for 20-30 minutes, until just tender when poked with a knife. Pull them out of the water and set aside until they're not steaming hot. Meanwhile, heat the butter, maple syrup and orange zest in a small saucepan until melted and smooth.

2Cut them, with their skins on, into thick slices or lengthwise into quarters. Brush with oil and cook on a preheated grill, turning with tongs, for a few minutes, or until char-marked (and heated through if you cooked them ahead). Serve the grilled potatoes warm, drizzled with maple butter.
