Directions

  1. 1If using wooden skewers soak them in water now.

  3. 3Toss the sweet potatoes with grapeseed oil and toss with the pumpkin pie spice and garlic salt. Bake for 20 minutes. Toss with a pair of tongs so all sides cook evenly. Bake another 15 minutes and remove from oven. Cool a bit so you can use your hands to put them onto skewers.
  4. 4Season both sides of the pork with a pinch of garlic salt and pumpkin pie spice. Add some grapeseed oil onto your grill pan. Pre heat the pan over medium high heat. The pan is ready when a splash of water sizzles. Place pork loin onto the pan and cook each side for about 7 minutes. Reduce heat a bit if they start to burn or cook too quickly.
  5. 5Remove the pork from the heat and let cool a bit so you can handle. Cut the pork into 1 inch cubes. Keep the pan oiled, you will add the skewers back onto it.
  6. 6Skewer the cooled sweet potatoes & pork. Turn the heat to medium & place the skewers onto the grill pan. Heat for a few minutes until sweet potatoes and pork are heated through.
  7. 7For the pumpkin aioli: Mix all the ingredients together.
