Secret bonus sweet potato recipe!
It’s a secret bonus recipe because I didn’t make it using things from my box. In fact, I didn’t make it at all! In fact, it doesn’t even have sweet potatoes in it!
So why am I even posting it? Because it is just so incredibly good. Duck wanted to make sweet potato fries for his birthday party. But the oven was full of vegan cupcakes and chocolate ginger torte, so he googled to find out if we could grill the fries instead. He came across this post, which reassured us that we could indeed grill our “fries.” But the true triumph was the aioli the post inspired. Although it was originally meant as a condiment for our grilled sweet potatoes, the party guests ended up dipping pretzels and chips, drizzling it on burritos, and licking it straight off their fingers. People could not get enough of this sauce, with good reason. And so I share it here. Pour it on everything from your box. You won’t be sorry.
