If you want some variation with your breakfast or lunch a sweet potato toast is a very nice, but also delicious as a snack. Especially ideal for those who want to eat gluten-free or who want to consume less bread.



Sometimes I like bread, but I know when I eat it too much it’s not good for my stomach and colons. So I eat different things. For example oatmeal, soups or this sweet potato toast. I don’t like to eat every day the same so I like variation 🙂



How to make sweet potato toast?

  • Take a sweet potato (yam) and cut into thin slices. You don’t have to peel it if it’s organic.
  • Toast this 2 times, possibly a 3rd time if the slices are thicker. Use the highest setting of your toaster.
  • Use a topping you like. U can go for savory or for sweet, just like a regular sandwich.

For your safety; unplug the toaster when you take the slices out with a fork or don’t use metal tools. You can use silicone food tongs.

If you don’t have a toaster, you also can toast it in your oven. Then you’ll need more patience 🙂 It’s about 20 minutes on a high temperature, f.e. 230 degrees Celsius. Halfway return the slices so you could bake both sides the same. As you see brown spots on it, it’s ready.
