These days more than ever, it’s simple pleasures like grilling on the patio with my family that bring me the most happiness. I’ve been playing around with different ways to grill veggie foods, but my very favorite meal right now is sweet potato wedges, corn on the cob, and tofu steaks. I grill all of this with McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning. The grilled mesquite sweet potatoes are especially a hit in our house, and they’re incredibly easy to make, so today I thought I’d share the recipe with you all.
MESQUITE GRILLED SWEET POTATO WEDGES
2 sweet potatoes
McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning
3 tablespoons olive oil
Light grill to preheat. Wash sweet potatoes well, dry, and cut lengthwise into wedges. Toss wedges with the olive oil, then sprinkle McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning on each side, and place on grill. Grill the sweet potatoes, turning once or twice, until grill marks appear on each side and each sweet potato is soft, about 15 minutes. I like to sprinkle some more of the McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning on each side during the grilling process as well. Once done, transfer to plates and serve immediately. I love to serve with grilled mesquite tofu steaks, grilled mesquite corn on the cob, and fresh greens. They’re also fantastic on their own as a snack. So good!
(Note: The tofu steaks and corn on the cob are super easy too. For the tofu steaks, cut extra firm tofu into rectangles, remove excess water, and marinade with McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Marinade, following the directions on the packet. Then grill for 6-8 minutes, turning twice. For the corn, baste with melted butter and grill until heated. Top both with McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning.)
The key ingredient to my beloved mesquite grilled sweet potatoes (and the tofu and corn!) is the McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning. This seasoning is genuinely next level you guys. Its bold flavor (smoky, barbecue goodness) and spicy crunch make everything in the meal taste more exciting. It also makes prep and cooking simple (I just shake a little on each side of the sweet potato wedges, tofu, and corn), so I can spend more time hanging with the people I love, just enjoying the bold flavors together. You can find McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning, along with the McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite Marinade I use for the tofu, and the other mouthwatering seasonings in the Grill Mates line in the spices aisle at Walmart or through Walmart Online Grocery: https://bit.ly/WalmartGrillMates.
I’m hungry just thinking about it.
If you try this recipe, I’d love to hear what you think!
Who else is feeling especially grateful for backyard grill sessions with your family right now?
