SWEET POTATO TOAST
Submitted by: Darian Kotchorek (2nd year Nutrition Student) Food trends are popping up on the regular and are taking every day favourite foods and combining them into one! I’m a sucker for toast with PB, honey, cinnamon and banana – but also love a good batch of sweet potatoes especially in the form of fries. Why not combine the two? Sweet potato toast can be topped in many ways and eaten at breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a snack. The topping options are endless ranging from savoury to sweet.
Sweet potatoes make a great addition to any meal, and in this case, replace the need for bread. These complex carbohydrates are rich in beta-carotene (Vitamin A), vitamin C, potassium and fibre!
100 grams of raw sweet potato rings in at:
2 grams protein

After preparing your sweet potato "toast" you can top it with your favorite add-ons. SWEET ideas:
Peanut butter, banana and cinnamon
Honey, PB and cinnamon
Cream cheese and jam
Maple syrup and fresh fruit
Nut butter and cacao nibs
Fried eggs, salt and pepper (add some chili flakes for extra heat)
Avocado, pepper and chili flakes
Black beans and sprinkle of cheese and salsa
Sprinkle of parmesan and herbs like basil
Yield: 1 medium gives 6-8 “slices”
Sweet potato, medium
Favorite toppings (see above for ideas)
Slice sweet potato into approximately ¼ inch thick long vertical slices
Turn your toaster to the highest setting and toast the sweet potato slices until desired cook is achieved. (May want to toast them 2-3 times to ensure its soft enough to eat and has a slight brown to it)
Top with your favourite choices and enjoy!
