Sweet Potato Toast with Peanut butter & Pomegranate

This little gem of an idea is doing the rounds on grain free cooking sites at the moment.

Swap out your grainy toast for a yummy alternative of sweet potato slices.

There are endless possibilities of toppings but I’m featuring a particularly good suggestion from an article on mindbodygreen.com which is Peanut butter and pomegranate.

Ingredients

1 Large Sweet Potato

Peanut butter

1 Pomegranate

Method

For a toaster

Slice your sweet potato in 3-4mm  thickness lengthways and pop in the toaster.

It may take 2 rounds to get it cooked through.

Spread a generous amount of peanut butter (or tahini) and sprinkle pomegranate seeds on top

Enjoy!

For oven

Slice your sweet potato in rounds 1 cm thickness and heat in the oven at 180C for 7min each side. You can use a little coconut oil  glaze to speed the cooking.

Spread a generous amount of peanut butter (or tahini) and sprinkle pomegranate seeds on top

Enjoy!
