Keeping up with Christmas dinner theme,this is another quick dish which is delish as well as nutritious.By now we all know the goodness of sweet potatoes. This is yet another way to incorporate this vegetable in your diet. You can grill a bagful of sweet potatoes ahead of time and use them for this dish, make quick French fries or soup.
Here’s how I made it.

3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup oil
1 tbsp sugar
½ cup goat cheese crumbles OR your choice of cheese
Parsley for garnish(optional)
How to:
Slice the sweet potatoes into 4, and again into 2s.
You will have 8 wedges from 1 sweet potato.
Prepare  all of them like this, place them in a microwave safe tray.
Pour oil, sprinkle salt and pepper.
Microwave for about 3 minutes or until just tender.
Pre heat grill.
Grill the parboiled wedges until nice grill marks appear.
At this point, you can place them in an oven and roast them until charred a bit.
