Sweet Potato Toast
January 23, 2018

Submitted by: Darian Kotchorek (2nd year Nutrition Student) 

Food trends are popping up on the regular and are taking every day favourite foods and combining them into one! I’m a sucker for toast with PB, honey, cinnamon and banana – but also love a good batch of sweet potatoes especially in the form of fries. Why not combine the two? Sweet potato toast can be topped in many ways and eaten at breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a snack. The topping options are endless ranging from savoury to sweet.

Sweet potatoes make a great addition to any meal, and in this case, replace the need for bread. These complex carbohydrates are rich in beta-carotene (Vitamin A), vitamin C, potassium and fibre!

100 grams of raw sweet potato (raw) rings in at:

  • <100 calories
  • 2 grams protein
  • 20 grams carbohydrates
  • 0 grams fat 
  • 3 grams fibre
After preparing your sweet potato "toast" you can top it with your favorite add-ons.


SWEET ideas:
  • Peanut butter, banana and cinnamon
  • Honey, PB and cinnamon
  • Cream cheese and jam
  • Maple syrup and fresh fruit
  • Nut butter and cacao nibs


SAVOURY  ideas:

  • Fried eggs, salt and pepper (add some chili flakes for extra heat)
  • Avocado, pepper and chili flakes
  • Black beans and sprinkle of cheese and salsa
  • Sprinkle of parmesan and herbs like basil


Yield: 1 medium gives 6-8 “slices”
