Peel and slice. Peel your sweet potatoes and then slice them into 1/4-inch thick slices. I like to slice in medallions, but you could also slice longways so that you have long planks.

Coat and spice. Add your olive oil, Stone House Seasoning, cumin, and chili powder. Toss to make sure that all of your slices are well coated.

Grill. Place your sweet potatoes onto your grill or grill pan that has been preheated to medium heat. I like to use tongs to place my slices onto the grill. Close the grill top and cook for 6 minutes. Carefully lift the grill lid and turn the slices with your tongs. Close the lid and cook for another 6 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are tender throughout and have grill marks on the outside.

Serve. Transfer your cooked sweet potato slices to a large serving bowl. Top with chopped fresh cilantro and lime juice, if using, and serve.

Can You Prep This Recipe Ahead?

Yes, this is a perfect recipe for prepping ahead when you are ready to grill. Simply add your sliced sweet potatoes to a bowl of cool water, cover, and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Then, drain the potatoes and pat dry before adding your olive oil and seasonings.
