Grilled Hasselback Potatoes

If you haven’t tried to grill your sweet potatoes before then you are in for a treat. The grill caramelizes the sugars in the potatoes to form nice crusty grill marks over a soft interior.

Ingredients

  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp. + 1 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 4 med. sweet potatoes
  • ¼ tsp. pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together garlic, rosemary, and 1 teaspoon olive oil. Set aside.
  3. Cut off a thin slice of each potato lengthwise to create a even base for potato to rest on. Slice off ends of each potato. Rest potato lengthwise between two chopsticks or wooden spoons to act as a stop for the knife and carefully cut vertical slits in each potato about every ⅛th inch.
  4. Brush potatoes with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with pepper to taste. Place potatoes on grill, cover, and cook until almost tender (15-20 minutes).
  5. Spread garlic and rosemary mixture over top of potatoes, cover, and continue to cook until soft in the center and crisp around the edges (15-20 minutes).

The B12 Question

Vegan Cheesy Chips

For all the benefits of the plant-based diet, and especially for those on a vegetarian diet, there is still one very important consideration, which is the lack of B12. Our bodies can’t produce B12, the essential, water-vitamin found mostly in meat and dairy foods, and therefore we must seek it in our diet. For those on a plant-only diet, there are many fortified foods and supplements available to help them meet their B12 needs. This raises the question as to how easy it is to become deficient in B12 and whether supplements and fortified foods are an adequate replacement.
