There’s a new trend dominating the foodie world. Be prepared to replace your bland, lacklustre, mundane breakfast toast for... *drumroll* Supercharged Sweet Potato Toast!
Sweet potatoes are very versatile vegetables, and it seems that their uses are infinite. They can be added to baked goods, mashed and coupled with steamed vegetables, baked as a healthy alternative to fries... and now they can even be used as a nutritious and delicious gluten free alternative to bread.
Enter: Sweet potato toast!
Sweet potato is a complex carbohydrate, meaning the natural sugars that give it that rich, sweet flavour will release a consistent flow of energy into the body all morning long.
These inexpensive, orange-hued root vegetables are high in fibre and overflowing with essential vitamins and minerals and, best of all, you won’t find that afternoon bloat after overindulging in bread.
Despite being cooked in the toaster, the sweet potatoes maintain their soft and moist texture, and they can be toasted with their skin on or off depending upon your preference.
The topping opportunities are endless too, with both sweet and savoury options pairing nicely with these golden, guilt-free and gluten-less slices of goodness!
I’ve featured some of my favourite toppings that will leave you lusting for sweet potato toast yearlong.
