  • 2 ½ pounds sweet potatoes, cut into wedges

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon curry powder

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • ½ cup coconut milk

  • cup smooth natural peanut butter

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium tamari or soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons chili-garlic sauce

  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup

  • Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish


  1. Preheat grill to medium.

  2. Toss sweet potatoes with oil. Sprinkle with curry powder, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper and toss to combine.

  3. Oil the grill rack. Turn off one burner. Grill the sweet potatoes on the hot side, flipping occasionally, until slightly charred, about 10 minutes. Move them to indirect heat and continue cooking, flipping occasionally, until tender, 8 to 10 minutes more. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.

  4. Meanwhile, whisk coconut milk, peanut butter, lime juice, water, tamari (or soy sauce), chili-garlic sauce and maple syrup in a medium bowl. Serve the potatoes with the sauce and top with cilantro, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
