This is has to be one of the easiest ways to replace some refined grains with a nutritious wholefood like sweet potato – nutritious, delicious and filling. I promise you after trying this, you won’t look back!

You may have seen this all over the internet being the “paleo” rage at the moment. And although I am often not keen to jump on such fad bandwagons, this I just had to give a go. I had made similar sweet potato recipes in the past, i.e finely sliced sweet potato, baked in the oven, drizzled in pesto with a topping on top. But I had never thought to pop the sweet potato in the toaster. This takes it to a whole new level because it is soooo easy! Anything that you can pop in the toaster makes life easy right? So I was very excited to give this a go.

The food blogger that came up with this genius idea is Kelsey from the lovely food blog Little Bits Of. Thank you Kelsey! Little Bits Of has lots of delicious healthy recipes all made with healthy real food but no skimping on flavour. You should head on over and check it out!

I was right to be excited about making sweet potato toast because it is super easy and super quick. Thinly slice your sweet potato, then pop in the toaster and put your favourite toppings on top. You will have to put the sweet potato down in the toaster on highΒ  2-3 times until it is cooked. No different than stubborn gluten free toast really….lets face it! Cooking times may vary depending on your toaster settings and how thick you slice the sweet potato. What you are looking for is soft on the inside and a bit crunchy around the outside.

Sweet Potato Toast with 3 Delicious Healthy Toppings. So quick, easy and tasty. These is a nutritious alternative to toast perfect if you are on a gluten free or grain free diet and not only is affordable but fills you up nicely.

Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene) which is excellent for the immune system, vitamin B5 & B6, vitamin C and fibre. As vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin it always needs to be paired with some healthy fats so it can be absorbed. To get my dose of healthy fats in there I have used tahini, avocado and an olive oil rich pesto as toppings but coconut oil or butter can also be used.

For the toppings I have used below these can be made to suit vegan diets by removing the egg and goats feta or to suit paleo diets by simply removing the goats feta. The options for toppings are endless, be creative folks!
