Sweet Potato Toast

When you are craving that crunchy slice of toast but are wanting to avoid the grains, this is the perfect alternative.  Cooking the sweet potatoes just long enough in the oven gives you that crispy crunch that you get from the crust of your toast.  Who says that food has to be boring when you choose not to eat bread???


1 sweet potato, peeled and sliced lengthways into 4
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper

Smashed avocado
Chopped salad: lettuce, tomato, capsicum, cucumber
Tahini dressing


Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees.

Prepare sweet potato and place on tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place in oven for 45-60 minutes until they are soft enough to cut through.

Use sweet potato as your base, ‘toast’, and top with anything you like. I have included the toppings as per the photograph, however you can do anything you like, salmon, shredded chicken, hummus etc… The list is as long as your imagination.
