Avocado toast is a classic healthy breakfast but if you want to try something new you have to try making sweet potato avocado toast. The key is to use baked sweet potato slices instead of bread. This is a delicious gluten-free alternative to bread and packs in a ton of vitamin A. I collaborated with Poosh on this recipe, which means Kourtney Kardashian would definitely approve of this breakfast!
What ingredients do I need?
Avocado: make sure it’s ripe!
Sweet potato: cut into slices and baked for 20 minutes or until golden brown and fork tender.
Cucumber: make slices of cucumber to top your toast.
Sesame seeds: this makes a great topping and is filled with healthy omega 3 fats.
Salt + pepper for garnish! That’s it!
What is the best way to make the sweet potato?
First, peel the sweet potato, unless you want to keep the skin on, that’s up to you. Cut into slices about 1/2 inch thick. Prep a baking sheet with parchment paper lay the sweet potato on the parchment. Spray with olive oil spray and season with salt and pepper.
Because the sweet potato is pretty thin, it should only take 20 minutes to bake. You can also air-fry them for 10 minutes or bake them in the toaster oven if you want it to be faster.
Bake until desired crispiness is achieved.
Pro tip: Prep and roast a bunch of sweet potato slices for the week so they are ready to go. In the morning, just pop in the toaster to warm.
Once the sweet potato is cooked, top with mashed avocado, cucumber slices, sesame seeds, salt and pepper.
Alternative toppings: hummus, tomato slices, vegan cream cheese, almond butter and banana if you want a sweet version of this toast, hemp seeds instead of sesame seeds, the combinations are endless.
