Griddled garlic infused sweet potato slices....

I love sweet potatoes and they are the perfect accompaniment to summer eating. They lend themselves good for griddling on a pan or on the bbq, as you get a nice sweet creamy texture blended with a slightly charred crisp outer. 

They are also rich in antioxidents and provide a good source of fibre so this dish could also be used for snacks. I adapted mine from this recipe here.

2-3 sweet potatoes sliced 
2 tbsps of Olive oil for brushing. (Mine was infused with garlic and basil but use plain olive oil if you wish.)

Heat a griddle pan until it is smoking slightly, then add the oiled sliced sweet potatoes in small batches. Cook for about 3 mins on each side until softened.

Remove and serve as a side dish, sprinkled with some mint, scallions or basil for added flavour. 

Hope you are all having a good week:)
