I know, toasts have been taking over instagram in such a big wave lately, especially with the delicious and colorful toppings that captivate all your senses and make you so indecisive which one you are going to go for.
And because bread is bread, no matter how gluten free, grain free, vegan, paleo, low fat ... it is, How about we ditch the bread for a change and we try these delicious and nutritious sweet potato toasts instead?
Let's get started;
what you need:
2 Garnet sweet potatoes
some coconut oil
a cutting board
a sharp knife
a toaster or an iron skillet
you can add whatever you heart desires, from savory to sweet.
What I added:
Spreads: coconut butter - peanut butter - dark chocolate - chia blueberry jam -
Fruits: pomegranate seeds- peaches - bananas - figs - dragon fruit - avocado- strawberries -
Mix and match to your liking.
Wash your sweet potatoes with the skin on.
Cut them in 1/4 inch each and simply place in your toaster and toast until desired crispiness.
I like to use my iron skillet, heat it for 3 mins and then place my slices brushed with a bit of coconut oil, and cook on both sides until cooked and crispy, you know I am old fashioned.
Place your sweet potato toasts on a tray and add all the delicious toppings you like.
Keep in mind to balance the sweetness of the potatoes with a good source of fat like coconut butter, peanut butter and avocados (that is why i like to toast them with coconut oil too since beta-carotene in the sweet potatoes are fat soluble).
This can make a perfect snack, an entree, a light breakfast or a treat on rainy cold days.
I would love to see you recreating this in your own style, please do not forget to snap a picture, post on your IG or Facebook tag me @nathaliesader #nathaliesader so I can enjoy it with you.
Lots of love,
