If you’re looking for healthy breakfast option, look no further. Sweet potato “toast” is the new grain-free option that has become popular with health enthusiasts looking for grain free healthier options. This sweet potato toast is easy to make and filling. Though it doesn’t taste like a traditional toast, you will be amazed at just how delicious this simple breakfast dish can be. Add toppings of your choice to add variety to your morning breakfast. I used smoked salmon, sautéed kale, and caramelized onions topped with shredded cheese.

Here are some other toppings you may like:

  • Sunny side up eggs
  • Avocado slices or guacamole
  • Hummus with roasted vegetables
  • Any nut butter with sliced bananas
  • Blueberries or strawberry slices with cream cheese

Ingredients:

2 large sweet potatoes

1 package smoked salmon

2 cups chopped kale

1 onion sliced

2 cloves garlic minced

2 tablespoons avocado oil

Shredded parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Sweet potato “toast”

Preheat oven to 400˚F. Slice the sweet potatoes lengthwise and trim the ends. The slices should be even and about ½-inch thickness. Lightly grease a large baking sheet and arrange the sweet potato slices in a single row.

Bake the sweet potatoes for 20 mins or until the slices are tender and can be easily pierced with a fork.

Sautéed garlic kale

In the meantime, heat 1 tablespoon of avocado oil in a sauté pan. Once the oil is hot, add garlic and let roast for a minute. Then, add kale and let cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the kale has wilted. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper. Remove the sautéed kale from the sauté pan and set aside.

Caramelized onions

Heat the remaining avocado oil in the sauté pan. Add the sliced onions once the oil is hot and sauté for 5 to 7 mins or until the onions turn golden brown and caramelized. Adding salt to the onions while they cook will also help with the caramelization process. Remove the caramelized onions once done and set aside.

Smoked salmon

Slice the smoked salmon into thin strips and set aside.

Assembling the sweet potato toast:

Remove the sweet potato from the oven. Top each of the sweet potato slices with the above toppings, or your toppings of choice. Sprinkle with shredded cheese, optionally. Return the sweet potato with the toppings to the oven for 2 to 3 more mins or until cheese has melted. Remove the sweet potato toast from the oven.
