Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges


  • 1 medium sweet potato, scrubbed (12 ounces)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Dash salt
  • Dash ground cinnamon
  • Olive oil nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh cilantro


  1. Cut sweet potato in half lengthwise. Wrap and store one half for another use. Cut the remaining half in half crosswise. Cut each half lengthwise into 1-inch thick wedges. In a covered medium saucepan, cook sweet potato wedges in enough boiling water to cover for 8 to 10 minutes or just until tender; drain well. Pat dry with paper towels.
  2. In a small bowl, combine oregano, garlic powder, salt, and cinnamon. Coat sweet potato wedges with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with oregano mixture.
  3. For a charcoal grill, place potato wedges on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes or until potato wedges are lightly browned, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place potato wedges on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above).
  4. To serve, sprinkle potato pieces with cilantro.
