Number of People – 6
Prep Time – 15 mins
Cooking Time – 10 mins


  • 3 medium sized sweet potatoes 500g
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp fresh garlic puree (or finely chopped garlic
  • 4 tbsp orange juice
  • Few sprigs of fresh rosemary finely chopped

To Serve

  • Small radish thinly sliced
  • A handful of chives finely chopped
  • Feta cheese to crumble
  • Guacamole


  1. Clean the sweet potatoes – they might need a good scrub, pat dry with a paper towel, and cut into wedges. Don’t make them too small or they will break apart when you grill them.
  2. Cook in water on the hob for 6 or 7 mins. Should be just tender when pierced. Drain and place on a drying rack or a paper towel.
  3. Add together the oil, orange juice, and chopped rosemary in a bowl, and add the wedges while they’re still hot. For best results, leave them in the fridge overnight but a minimum of an hour to marinate for best results.
  4. Grill them on your chiminea for 5 to 7 mins, turning when needed. Use extra marinade to baste them.


  • To cook sweet potatoes in the fire, wrap in tinfoil and place amongst the hot coals for 40-50 mins.
  • You can cook butternut squash or pumpkin the same way.
  • Orange juice is not essential and you may prefer it without.
