Sweetpotato Toast Galore! made with California Sweetpotatoes

Each variation serves 1

Ingredients:

For Sweetpotato Toast with Avocado, Poached Egg, and Sriracha

1 slice sweetpotato (about 1/4-inch thick)
1/4 small avocado
1 egg, poached
Salt, to taste
Sriracha or other hot sauce, to taste

For Sweetpotato Toast with Cream Cheese, Maple Syrup, and Dates

1 slice sweetpotato (about 1/4-inch thick)
2 tablespoons cream cheese
2 or 3 dates, halved or quartered
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin seeds or pepitas, toasted
Maple syrup, to taste

For Sweetpotato and Tomato Bruschetta

1 slice sweetpotato (about 1/4-inch thick)
1/2 tomato
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt, to taste

Instructions:

  1. To make the toast variations, cook the sweetpotato in your toaster or toaster oven as you would a piece of bread, using the most well-done setting, until tender (you might have to do this 2 times). Transfer the sweetpotato to a plate, add the toppings, and enjoy.

  2. To make the bruschetta variation, cook the sweetpotato as directed above. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Transfer the sweetpotato to a plate, top with the tomato mixture, and enjoy.
