Sweet Potato Toast is delicious, nutritious and so easy to make!
This is the perfect healthy breakfast alternative or make-ahead take-along lunch.
SWEET POTATO TOAST is for you if:
You need to remove gluten or wheat from your diet or just feel blah & bloated after your morning piece of toast?
Not sure what you could replace bread with or feel you don’t have time in the morning to think about options?
Are looking for a healthy alternative to the standard cereal or toast and peanut butter or Vegemite.
Your just looking for a healthy nutritious, delicious brekkie or lunch!
🍠 cut sweet potato lengthwise in 1cm slices (don’t peel, just scrub skin and leave on)
🍠 put in the toaster, as you would bread and toast (yep that easy!) – it may need to be pushed back down 2-3 times depending on thickness.
🍠 top with any combination – mine are from left to right:
🥜 nut butter, cinnamon & a drizzle of maple syrup, topped with banana slices & blueberries
🍌 mashed banana topped with pumpkin & sunflower seeds & crushed walnuts
🥑 smashed avo with salt, pepper & lemon juice
🍅 leafy greens (baby beet, rocket & baby spinach) & diced tomato, tossed in olive oil & lemon juice, topped with ricotta
🥚 tahini & 🥑 smashed together, topped with a poached egg & drizzled with olive oil, balsamic & lemon juice
🍠 slice the sweet potato and roast in the oven the night before till just cooked – pop in the oven or toaster to warm in the morning
🍠 make toppings ahead the night before and have ready to go in the morning (leafy greens & tomato salads, dips like guacamole, tzatziki or hummus are good, or avo smashed with any of these boiled egg/feta/ricotta/tahini and drizzled with lemon juice all work well).
🍠 hemp seeds, sesame seeds, flaxseeds, pumpkin and/or sunflower seeds all make great additions. As do nuts like almond, pistachio, cashew, walnuts and pine nuts!
🍠 if your heading out early or lack time in the morning, make a take along brekkie before you go to bed – it’s a much healthier option for your mind & body then relying on coffee alone!
🍠 Switch out the sweet potato for thick pumpkin slices (they’ll need roasting not in the toaster) for a delicious alternative!
🍠 Works well cold as a lunch for school or work too!
