Our Sweet Potato Wedges With Aioli Recipe Is a Tasty Snack for Under $1.50 Per Serving

This recipe involves microwaving the spuds and grilling them for quick caramelized flavor

This recipe for Sweet Potato Wedges With Aioli takes the sweet spud and turns it into a tender side that’s served with a tangy dip. These wedges still have their skins on, which saves you the step of peeling them before microwaving. Plus, the skin contains lots of nutrients found in the root vegetable including vitamins A and C, which help support a healthy immune system and vibrant skin.

Bonus tip: If you’re unable to grill outside, crisp up the wedges on the stove using a heated grill pan instead. Be sure to thoroughly grease the grill pan’s surface to ensure the wedges char nicely without sticking. Once grilled, the wedges are ready to serve with the red pepper aioli as a simple snack or party appetizer. You’ll definitely want to add this recipe to your collection of favorite snacks!
