No, your eyes are not deceiving you. 

Me, the self proclaimed white potato advocate has moved to the dark sweet side. 

Not really. Never. Me and the humble white potato will never have a negative relationship. I mean, I did eat a kilo of them in a single day. I then did it again. I followed that up by eating a kilo of potatoes a day for seven days straight.

If that’s not love I don’t know what love is. 

It’s not like I despise the sweeter sister of the white ones- I just have favourites. Saying that, it’s as though i’m in the minority here. My recipe for Kettle Corn Baked Potatoes, while delicious, is one of my least popular recipes posted on here. Not only that, but my least popular recipe is my marinated pesto potato salad. The irony? The three most popular ones are my sweet potato and cheddar pancakes, spicy sweet potato and pumpkin dip and my baked falafel muffins– The two recipes which incorporate sweet potatoes.

Saying that though, just because sweet potatoes are clearly the popular of the two spuds, I’m not changing my tastes or recipes to cater for that. If I do have a delicious sweet potato or experiment with one successfully, great. However, I’m also going to do the same with the white spuds too because they are delicious and even if the only person who pins it is my mum, so be it.

Just kidding, that will never happen. She thinks the Pinterest symbol is the ‘STOP’ sign in some foreign country.

When my friend invited me to a memorial day barbecue, I knew this would be the perfect dish to bring, or rather, grill up. 

These Kettle Corn Grilled Sweet Potatoes are THE sweet potato recipe you need to convert a non-sweet potato fan to be one. While grilling the potatoes already make them a winner, the added sweet and salty spice rub takes it to the next level. For those who have a decent spice tolerance, I’d recommend even adding a dash of smoked paprika and red pepper flakes (which I most certainly did for myself). I love the flavour of this coconut oil for coating them and the taste of this coconut sugar for the seasoning.

I’ve mentioned on here several times before but adding a dash of salt to sweet foods (like this oatmeal or these pancakes) bring out the sweetness even more. These are also the perfect side dish to serve at a barbecue or even during the week with your main meal. Do one better and serve up a whole plateful with a side of sour cream or condiment of choice and go to town. 

 

The next time you turn the grill on, have your seasoned sweet potatoes ready. Also, if you choose to give the white ones the same treatment, I won’t mind.

In fact, I’ll cheers to that.

Ingredients
  1. 3-4 large sweet potatoes, cut into discs
  2. 1 T coconut oil, melted*
  3. 1 T coconut sugar
  4. 1 T sea salt
  5. 1 tsp smoked paprika (optional)
  6. 1 tsp + red pepper flakes (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the sweet potato discs and coconut oil and mix roughly.
  2. Add the coconut sugar, sea salt, smoked paprika and red pepper flakes and mix very well until potatoes are fully coated.
  3. Heat a grill or barbecue and coat generously with cooking spray or brush will coconut oil.
  4. Layer your sweet potato discs and cook for approximately 12-15 minutes, flipping when charred and soft on one side
Notes
  1. * I tried this with 2-3 T oil and the sweet potatoes stuck to the grill and became too soft. By only using 1 tablespoon, they came out charred and semi crispy!
  2. Cooking time depends on temperature and power of your grill. Mine were done within 25 minutes, flipping once.

  1. Good choice dear. But I must say, the orange sweet really is not king (nor my favorite). Have you ever been graced by the taste of the Japanese Sweet Potato? Their denser “drier” texture and less “wet/sweet” taste then the typical orange…..you would be a fan. 😉 We’ll just have to go potato shopping too now!

  2. Just when our feud over “Love Actually” was becoming a faded memory along comes your love for white spuds. Sweeties are hands down the superior potato and there will be no convincing me otherwise! With that said, I’m loving the TLC you gave them in this recipe, they look so yummy!

  3. Yum! These sound fabulous – love that sweet/spicy combo. As luck would have it, I have all the necessities on hand. Perhaps once I peel myself off the couch…

  4. first, THANK YOU for celebrating the glory that is a potato. they get such a bad rap, and I’d totally take on your 7 day challenge. um, wait… I probably did that last week after my FACE SURGERY. I made mashed potatoes, and Jason even went to the store in the middle of the day to buy me a BOX OF INSTANT potatoes. I had a craving. they were so good.

    anyway, I am still on soft foods, but these definitely count! I cannot wait to trryyyyyy.

  5. This looks fantastic – I adore sweet potato, and I have coconut sugar so I have to give this a go! I love to grill literally any vegetable – asparagus or green beans are good!

  6. Yes, yes and more yes to this one, Arman! First, it’s grilled. That makes it awesome. But second, it’s grilled sweet potatoes! I have a grilled sweet potato recipe that I absolutely love, but I’ve never tried using coconut oil. Clever little trick you’ve got going on there! I’m going to need you to deliver these to my Memorial Day BBQ. Also, this recipe is now destined to be the most popular one on here…because it’s sweet potatoes. 🙂

  7. So in the realm of potatoes, sweet potatoes definitely have my heart. I have nothing against white potatoes…I just prefer them in fried form. As evidenced by my Five Guys dinner last night when the fries didn’t even survive the drive home.

  8. I wouldn’t let you sit with me if you brought these to the table… buuuut that’s mostly because I heart white potatoes and sweet potatoes have been causing my stomach to go all sorts of wonk. Bring me fries and all is forgiven, though <3

  9. Just read your newsletter! Are you making baklava oatmeal?? I’ve never had baklava since it’s only sugar and nuts, basically, but an oatmeal version? I’d give it a go! And the cookie… oatmeal raisin? I’m not that familiar with subways but I think that’s a popular one.
    I think you’ll be best friends with those people no matter WHICH of your recipes you’ll bring to memorial day!
    We’re having a long weekend too, Monday’s off because it’s Whitmonday. YAY!

  10. Seriously obsessed with this recipe! I LOVE sweet potatoes and these sound perfect! Love that you used coconut oil and coconut sugar – delicious!
