  • Cooking Time: 40 minutes (stovetop and grill)


2 lbs. sweet potatoes, cleaned and unpeeled
3 Tbsp. olive oil
3 Tbsp. lite soy sauce
1 Tbsp. peeled, grated fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced


Marinating Time: 30 minutes
  1. Place the sweet potatoes in a large saucepan and cover them with water. Bring to boiling and cook the sweet potatoes for about 30 minutes, just until tender. Drain the cooking water, rinse the sweet potatoes under cool running water, and drain again. Cut the sweet potatoes crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Place the slices in a large glass baking dish.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over the sweet potatoes. Marinate the potatoes at room temperature for 30 minutes, turning the slices once. Drain the slices and reserve the marinade.
  3. Prepare an outdoor grill. Coat a grill rack with cooking spray. Set the grill to medium high with the rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source. Add the potato slices to the grill. Cook the slices for 1 minute. Flip the slices, brush with the reserved marinade, and grill for 1 minute more or until browned. Repeat until all the sweet potato slices are browned.
Broiling Instructions: Follow steps 1 and 2. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Broil the sweet potato slices 4 inches from the heat source for 3 to 5 minutes. Flip the slices, brush with the reserved marinade, and broil for 3 to 5 minutes more, until golden brown and caramelized.
