Because this sweet potato toast freezes well, you can double or triple this recipe for meal prep. It gives you a convenient grab-and-go option on that busy morning when you need something fast.
Smashed avocado, sliced tomato, and everything bagel seasoning (no salt)
This bread-free version of avocado toast is a winner! The smashed avocado and sliced tomato are a nutritional match made in heaven. What takes this up a notch is the sprinkle of seasoning on top. Everything bagel seasoning can be found at most grocery stores. However, most of the brands on the market have salt. If you're trying to reduce your salt intake, check out this fast and easy no-salt Everything Bagel Season recipe.
Hummus and dark leafy greens
Spreading oil-free hummus on this toast provides a nice savory balance to the sweetness of the sweet potato. Topping it with chopped arugula or microgreens gives this toast a boost of nutrients from dark leafy greens for breakfast.
Peanut butter, banana, and cinnamon
Okay, peanuts are technically a legume. However, for culinary purposes, they are treated as a nut like cashews or almonds—which you could also substitute for peanuts. If you have a nut allergy, sunflower seed butter works well. Spread peanut (or seed) butter on this sweet potato toast, add sliced banana, and finish off with a dusting of cinnamon. Yum!
How to prepare
Wash and dry sweet potatoes. Carefully trim the edges and rough parts of the sweet potatoes and cut them into ¼- to ½-inch slices lengthwise.
Do not peel the sweet potatoes beforehand. Not only does the skin help to keep the toast slices intact, but it also boosts the nutritional density.
Place sweet potato slices into an air fryer and cook at 300 F (150 C) for 15 to 17 minutes. If oven-baking, bake on a parchment- or silicone mat-lined baking sheet at 350 F (175 C) for 25 minutes. You want the toasts to be tender but not toasted—they will toast up in the toaster when you're ready to assemble and eat.
If meal prepping these sweet potato toasts, allow them to cool to room temperature before storing. Keep these convenient toasts in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. If freezing, separate the toasts with a small piece of parchment paper. Otherwise, they'll be difficult to pry apart when you want to make them. These sweet potato toasts freeze for up to 3 months.
Toast, assemble, and eat
When you're ready to enjoy these fun little toasts, remove them from the refrigerator or freezer. Pop one or more into the toaster. Toast until it starts to crisp on the outside.
Remove the sweet potato toast slices from the toaster and top with any or all of these combinations:
- Mashed avocado, sliced cherry tomatoes, and everything bagel seasoning
- Oil-free hummus, fresh chopped arugula (or microgreens)
- Peanut butter (or sunflower seed butter), sliced banana, and cinnamon
