A Toast to Spring: A Sweet Potato Toast, That Is
Spring has finally sprung, and that is a good thing because for many of us it has been a long, long winter. With spring finally here, we wanted to take time to give our favorite season a toast, celebrating its much-appreciated return. Cheers to that! To that end, we thought we’d celebrate with a fun and healthy twist on toast, just like we did last year.
Enter sweet potato toast. Sliced thinly and popped into the toaster (or toasted in the oven on a cookie sheet), sweet potato toast is our favorite new healthy alternative to traditional toast. And bonus: it’s gluten free and a super easy way to sneak in an extra veggie or two.
Here are our favorite sweet potato toast combos — a breakfast version, a pescatarian version, and a vegan version — all guaranteed to get you gushing about the amazing versatility of the sweet potato. So, give these toasts a try and let us know what you think!
