How to Make Sweet Potato Toast-3 Ways!
What’s a girl to do when she can’t eat bread?? Well I guess I could eat some Gluten Free bread but honestly there are very few (I’ve only found one kind) that are also vegan because they often use egg whites to hold the bread together. Plus gluten free bread just isn’t that good. I’m someone who eats a gluten free diet and I think it tastes like cardboard. I would rather just eat something else. So what’s a girl to do when she really wants to jump on the healthy toast bandwagon? Cue the sweet potato. Sweet Potatoes are one of my favorite foods- potentially my favorite food ever (I’m not sure I will ever be able to choose one favorite food).
I’ve made sweet potato toast a handful of times before, and decided to finally take some photographs and share with you all how to make it. After posting this photo to my instagram I actually got a few messages from friends/people I know in real life asking how to make it.
Sweet potato toast is really a great any time meal/snack. It is super healthy and versatile making it perfect for any time of day. Today I am sharing my 3 favorite ways to make it/ toppings to use. I can’t decide if I like the savory or sweet toppings better. They are both so gooood. Every time I make sweet potato toast I get so excited because I always feel so healthy and energized after eating it.
So how do you make sweet potato toast??
Step 1: Pick out sweet potatoes at the grocery store that are pretty wide and long. You want to be able to easily cut the sweet potato into toast-like shapes. Cut the sweet potatoes about 1/2 an inch thick and into the best square like shape you can. Then add the sweet potatoes to the toaster and toast them for a few cycles. I unfortunatley only had skinny sweet potatoes so my slices were pretty small so I could add like 3 slices into one side of the toaster at a time. Feel free to add more slices to the toaster at a time if your pieces are small.
Step 2: Heat the sweet potatoes through a few cycles on the toaster. Depending on your toaster you use you will want to toast them on the highest setting about 3-4 times. Those are the settings that I use, but play around with your toaster to create the desired texture. I toast mine until they are crispy on the outside and soft(ish) on the inside.
Step 3: Add all of the fun toppings! Here’s a little breakdown of how to make the variations pictured.
Banana-PB Sweet Potato Toast: PB2 / powdered peanut butter + sliced banana+ cinnamon + chia seeds
Carrot-Avocado Sweet Potato Toast: Spread garlic hummus (Cedar’s brand), top with spring mix, peeled/juliened carrot, and avocado + black pepper
Tomato-Avocado Toast: Spread garlic hummus (Cedar’s brand), top with spinach, avocado, sliced tomato, sea salt, and black pepper
