Since my encounter with bar food last week, I’ve been focused on eating more plants.
I came across this idea to enjoy “toast” and get more veggies into my life at the same time.
Sweet potato toast.
The potato slice serves as the “toast,” upon which you pile on whatever sweet or savory toppings you like. It’s both delicious—and nutritious. (Sweet potatoes are loaded with healthful nutrients, particularly vitamin A and vitamin C.)
How to Make It
- 1 large sweet potato, scrubbed and cut into ¼” lengthwise slices (will yield about 4-6 slices)
- 2 tsp olive oil
- Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
- Place potato slices in a bowl and toss with olive oil.
- Arrange slices on a baking tray, being careful not to crowd them.
- Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, flip the slices, and bake for 10 more minutes.
- Once the “toasts” are baked, top them as you choose.
Some topping ideas:
🧀 🐟 Ricotta & smoked salmon (Tip: Add thinly sliced onions and a sprinkling of capers for some textural and flavor contrast.)
🥑 Avocado, goat cheese and tomato slices. This is what I topped my “toasts” with. Tastier than expected and had to have seconds. I would have smashed my avocado to make eating easier, but it wasn’t quite ripe enough.
🌰 🍓 Nut butter & berries
Leftover cooked sweet potato slices can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days.
To reheat, sweet potato slices can actually be toasted in a toaster, as you would bread. I reheated mine in the microwave and that worked well too.
Depending on your toppings, these make the perfect snack or light meal.
Have fun getting creative with your toppings!
