Ingredients

  • 2 sweet potatoes (about 1 lb/500 g)
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon herbes de Provence
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Method

Peel and cut potatoes into scant 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices. Cut double-thickness 24-inch (60 cm) heavy-duty foil; fold in half. Unfold and grease; mound potatoes on 1 side close to fold. Sprinkle with green onions, herbes de Provence, salt and pepper; drizzle with oil and lemon juice. Fold foil over; fold in sides and seal to form packet. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 hours.)

Place on grill over medium heat. Close lid and grill, turning once, until tender, about 10 minutes.
