Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!

This is a really simple recipe for grilled yams and sweet potatoes and is a staple for us during grilling season. We love making this side dish with just about anything that we are grilling. You can cut the yams/sweet potatoes thick or even thin to be more like “sweet potato fries” without deep-frying them. Plus the thinner you slice them the quicker they will grill! Enjoy!!

This is a quick recipe to make a healthy, delicious side dish! It takes about 5-minutes to prepare the yams and 15-minutes to grill them. We love making grilled yams after work when we do not have much time to prepare and cook dinner. Yams have great flavor and are a healthy alternative to white potatoes. I hope you enjoy this easy-to-make recipe!

4 Medium Yams, washed and trim ends
Non-stick spray
Summer Savory herbs, optional
Honey, for serving

Oil Mixture
2 Tbsp Olive Oil and/or Grapeseed Oil
Assorted herbs such as rosemary, thyme, parsley
Minced Garlic

You can use basting oil that already has the herbs and spices mixed together. I like to mix the yams with the oil mixture in a sealed container. That way you can shake the yams and oil mixture together to better coat them. Plus you will use less of the oil…

  1. I have never tried grilling sweet potatoes, I am going to give this a try. I love them, they look delicious along with the asparagus! πŸ™‚

      They are wonderful! A great side dish on a hot summer day. You can use any herbs that you like and I serve mine with a side of honey. Some people serve them with butter and honey – but we omit the butter. πŸ™‚ I hope you and your family enjoy them!
