But it’s potato.
Sweet potato toasts!
When I first saw this, I thought…GENIUS.
Alllllmost as genius as when Einstein said:
“Nothing will benefit health or increase chances of survival on earth as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”
“Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion”
Anyways, sometimes it’s the simplest combination of action, taste and texture that creates the best experience.
Taste: Savoury sweetness.
Texture: Chewy tastiness.
These little pieces of art are perfect for summer. You don’t have to touch your oven to enjoy your taters. And, if you’re like me, sweet potato is a must for every season.
Get creative with your toppings (perfect for the kidlets to join in on).
Go sweet … cover it in berries.
Go savoury … smother it with avo & nooch.
Go tangy … sprinkle it with sauerkraut.
Go spicy … sriracha!
Whatever you do….take a picture and tag me on Instagram so I can see your beautiful creations ( @hookedonplants ).
Channel your inner childhood summer camp arts & crafts hour and get crafty.
Whoever said to not play with your food…must have not enjoyed eating it. Some of the best food is the food you put the time into making pretty. You enjoy every. single. chomp.
Sweet Potato is the staple of some of the longest-living humans on this earth! The Okinawans base their plant-based diet around the sweet potato and their area is one of the most populated areas with centenarians around. Sweet potatoes are packed with fibre, vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and ready for your body to utilize and thrive off of. Don’t be afraid of carbs when they come in their whole, unrefined form.
- 1 sweet potato, sliced in ¼ inch discs
- Choice of toppings:
- Peanut or almond butter
- Berries & bananas
- Nutritional yeast
- Hemp seeds
- Chia seeds
- Fresh herbs
- Toast your sweet potato 2-4 times depending on the heat your toaster or toaster oven brings! When it’s browning, you’re ready to go to the next step
- Top it! As I said, get creative and make art 🙂
