Sweet potato toasts are a nutrient packed alternative to regular toast. Oblong slices of sweet potato are roasted in the oven (just until tender), cooled then toasted in the toaster when ready to eat. Top them with anything you would put on your toast; almond butter, avocado slices, eggs, or smoked salmon. For this recipe, I spread them with cashew cream, chopped dates and cinnamon which could easily be served as dessert. I suggest you make the sweet potato toast over the weekend, store in the fridge, then pop them in your toaster for a quick breakfast or tasty snack throughout the week.
