Sweet Potato Toast

Okay, so I don’t typically eat toast, and I LOVE sweet potato (who doesn’t?), so obviously I had to try this new concept of sweet potato toast. It sounded dreamy to me so I tried it out with my spin on toppings. I’m going to give you my non-sugar coated opinion of sweet potato toast.

You definitely need a really good knife for this, and a super toaster. Apparently I don’t have a super toaster. You will also need to find a sweet potato that is fairly symmetrical, is that even a thing? Apparently it is, just spend a little more time in the potato section at the grocery store.  It took 3 rounds of toasting the 1/4″ slices on level 5. At this point it was browning on the outside and started to slightly soften in the center. I personally was not in love with the texture, but many have claimed success with their sweet potato toast so it’s definitely worth a try! Besides it’s probably time to push your toaster and knife skills to their full potential. But just incase, I’ll give you a back-up plan.

Pick your favorite combo or try a few. Even mix em’ up, and create your own!

Ingredients 

  • 1 large sweet potato
  • Toppings 1: Figs, plain coconut yogurt, with a drizzle of maple syrup
  • Toppings 2: Your favorite hummus and broccoli sprouts
  • Toppings 3: Organic goat cheese, wild-caught smoked salmon, spice it up with some red pepper flakes
  • Toppings 4: Avocado, salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Slice the sweet potato length wise into 1/4″ slices
  2. Place in your toaster on it’s highest setting (typically 5) for 2-3 rounds, they should begin to have brown spots and it should be slightly soft in the middle -OR- my preferred method is to preheat the oven to 400 degrees, coat the sweet potato slices in a thin layer of coconut oil and bake for 20 minutes
  3. Let them cool for a few minutes
  4. Now for the easy part, pick your favorite toppings!
  5. They can be eaten with your hands like toast or with a knife and fork
