SWEET POTATO TOAST
My sister is currently on an intense diet, she can only eat protein and vegetables. She has cut out all carbs in her diet, even fruit! She has lost over 30 pounds and looks amazing but gosh she is really missing out on some tasty foods. She has heard about using sweet potatoes as a replacement for toast and wanted me to try it out for her and see how it tasted. My final verdict for this was that it's great!
It is a great substitute for bread. The key to making the sweet potato toast is making sure not to over cook it, if you want it to be tender not mushy.
1 large sweet potato
freshly ground black pepper
almond butter, banana, & Mike's hot honey
Spicy brown mustard, smoked salmon, & capers
Prosciutto & Fried egg
avocado slices & red pepper flakes
Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees
Wash sweet potato and slice sweet potato lengthwise into 1/4" thick slices.
Place sweet potato on baking sheet and lightly coat sweet potato slices with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Bake for about 10-15 minutes, flip slices over and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until a fork can easily pierce the sweet potato. Don’t overcook or the sweet potato toast will become mushy.
Set oven to broil and continue to cook for 2 minutes on each side, until toasty.
Remove from oven and top with your toppings of choice and enjoy.
