Curried Sweet Potatoes on a Stick

When I saw the book On a Stick!, I knew I had to have it. The title alone got me intrigued. I thought the idea of a book where every single recipe is on a stick was the coolest and most original ever.

I was impressed by the creativity and playfulness of the recipes: pizza on a stick, strawberry shortcake on a stick, even caramel popcorn on a stick, for goodness’ sake. So much FUN!! All I know now is I want to hang out with Matt sometime and make couscous on a stick. I don’t know how but I’m pretty sure someone who put spaghetti and meatballs on a stick will find away.

I thought I had a favorite sweet potato recipe but I might just have found a replacement for it with this grilled, curried version. It’s easy to make and delicious.
