Let’s be honest we all get a fright when something pops out the toaster
Gooood Morning guys from Abu Dhabi! 🙂 We have another public holiday on Sunday, so I have that ‘long weekend feeling going on’- can you tell?
If you follow me on Insta or snap (foxesandfood) you will see I that I made sweet potato toast this morning (pretty successfully might I add) & I promised I would write a quick blog post with the full deets so here you go.
It’s so easy. I just bought 1 large sweet potato & sliced it the best I could – I wouldn’t make it any thicker than 1/4 inch but if they do end up a little thicker you just have to toast them for a little longer – not the end of the world if you have yet to master the art of sweet potato slicing.
Ok, so everyone’s toaster is different, but for me – the slices were fully toasted when I used the highest setting & toasted the slices twice. With some toasters, the numbers actually represent minutes & I think that was the case for mine – so let’s go with toasting the slices for between 10 – 12 minutes all together.
Are you still with me? Ok good.
The fab thing about sweet potato toast is that you can literally add what every you want on top. It works well with both sweet & savory options. – here is what I used;
- Banana & nut butter
- Avocado (obviously)
- Vegan butter spread (or you can use coconut oil) with basil & black pepper
- Biscuit spread & blueberries (YUM)
Why are people going crazy for sweet potato toast? I can think of a few reasons; firstly your sweet potato slices are much more nutritious than bread toast. You get a fab amount of vitamin A & the sweet potato toast also gives you some vitamin B6, D & C. Iron, magnesium, potassium & copper are in there too, no wonder they are one of the worlds healthiest foods. Sweet potato also provide a decent amount of fibre, which will defs help keep you full till your next meal.
Secondly, it tastes much nicer than toasted bread.
Let me know if you try it! I am off to work out, then have a day of studying ahead of me – hopefully will catch some winter sun this afternoon! Have a fab weekend – Jess xx
