Toast is high on our list of favorite foods. Recently we heard of a new kind of toast and immediately had to try it out: sweet potato toast. Made just like bread in the toaster, the thin slices of sweet potato are topped with everything under the sun. Plus, this toast is gluten free, sweet + nutty, and really good for you! Here’s how we made ours…
So here’s the first step, and kind of the craziest part: you literally stick a thin slice (like 1/4in thick) piece of raw sweet potato (or yams…what’s the difference again??) into a toaster. Turn it all the way up. And then toast it again. So twice at the max setting. That resulted in a perfectly cooked and crisp sweet potato toast.
Now the fun part: the toppings! At first we was nervous about what kinds of combinations would go well with toasted sweet potatoes. But then after trying out all of them we realized, “Oh, you just have to think of it like a sweet bread!”. Meaning, anything will go well with it (like nutella!)
Here were a few favorites: cream cheese + raspberry jam, butter + honey, butter + a fried egg, arugula + lemon + avocado, cream cheese + blueberries, goat cheese + dried plums + pistachio nuts chopped (this last one was my favorite).
You have to try it guys, and tell me what you think. It’s our new favorite toast!
