I just came back from my book club meeting, where Julia and Kevin gave me their recipe for garlic sweet potatoes:
For each person:
1 sweet potato
1 head of garlic
Rosemary (dry or fresh)
Wrap each sweet potato in foil (poke holes in them) and add some olive oil. Roast the whole sweet potato on the barbecue for about 45 minutes or until tender.
At the same time, cut off the top of the head of garlic and sprinkle with olive oil and rosemary. Wrap it in foil and also put it on the barbecue.
After 45 minutes to an hour, take everything off the barbecue and cut open the sweet potato, scoop out the "meat" and squeeze the roasted caramelized garlic juice and everything from the head of garlic onto the sweet potato.
Season with salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
