A couple of weeks ago I woke up craving avocado toast and thought we had bread but WE DIDN’T! So sad. So I sliced up some taters, made my first sweet potato toast and posted it on my Instagram. I knew that it was an awesome idea and although it doesn’t really require a recipe, I had to share it with you! I decided to try it with a few topping options and loved all 3 so much.
Avocado was an obvious choice as it goes well on anything – especially sweet taters. So then I thought, what else do I love on toast? Well there were really only 2 other things. Almond Butter and Tuna! Not together. That would be a little scary. Unless I made the almond butter into some kind of thai dressing and tossed it with tuna…. mmmmm see how my brain works? YUM.
I digress. Almond butter goes with banana and cinnamon and the tuna gets a kick from relish and red onion. So here is how its done:
How to make Sweet Potato Toast:
Step 1: Slice sweet potato into toast like pieces (about 1/4 inch thick) and add to toaster.
Step 2: Toast TWICE! It took mine 2 rounds on high (could take 3-4 though!) in the toaster to cook through and result in this slightly browned “toast”. I use an Oster toaster! Cheap and works like a charm. Here is the one I have:
Slice sweet potatoes lengthwise into 1/4 inch slices. Add to the toaster like you would bread and toast on high. It took me 2 rounds to get it cooked how I like with a little bit a browning on both sides.
Remove skin from avocado and slice. Add to toast and sprinkle with salt, pepper and some lemon zest.
For Almond Butter:
Spread some almond butter on toast and add sliced banana and a bit of cinnamon.
I added 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon relish and 1 tablespoon of diced red onion to a small can of tuna. Scoop tuna onto toast!
