Grilled Lavender Sweet Potato Sliders

Side dishes are so gratifying to make!  The possibilities are limitless.  Tonight's meal is a superb example.  I simply took sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced them, added some quick and easy ingredients, placed in foil lined with parchment paper, grilled and served. 

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
2 Tablespoons Earth Balance butter (it's vegan)
                     (*Note: Buy the sticks they taste better)
3 Tablespoons Agave Nectar
1 1/2 tablespoons Lavender, chopped (use extra after your done grilling) 
Dusted with Salt and Pepper
2 large pieces of foil
1 large piece of parchment paper


1) Line foil with parchment paper, place sliced sweet potatoes in the center so your able to fold up the sides to cover the sweet potatoes. (This helps them cook quicker.)

2) Place earth balance butter, agave nectar, chopped lavender and dust with salt and pepper.
3) Fold up the side and close up if possible to make a ball shape.  Place on the grill for 10-15 minutes or until slightly soft.  Place on a warm serving platter, dust with more lavender and serve.  YUM!
