Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Pomegranate Molasses and Crunchy Pistachios
When I was growing up, my family enjoyed sweet potatoes all fall and winter long. But once I started grilling them, they became an all-season superstar. Now sweet potatoes on the grill are a summertime favorite in my house. If you’ve never grilled a sweet potato before, you are sorely missing out! Not to worry—my grilled sweet potatoes recipe with pomegranate molasses and crunchy pistachios is here to save the day.
What is pomegranate molasses, you ask?
It’s a tart and tangy condiment with an underlying caramelly sweetness. That burst of flavor is what makes this ingredient totally unique. Drizzling a little bit of this molasses over the top of your grilled sweet potatoes seriously takes them over the top. Chopped pistachios add a little crunch and a savory, nutty flavor to round it all out. This recipe sounds fancy, but it’s so easy to make.
Where to Find Pomegranate Molasses
Pomegranate molasses for your grilled sweet potatoes is available at Middle Eastern stores, and usually, at larger grocery stores with good selections of international products. If you can’t find any, a good substitute for pomegranate molasses is honey. For extra texture, flavor, and a pop of color, sprinkle some pomegranate arils (seeds) over the potatoes as a finishing touch. Your guests are going to LOVE this one.
