Thanks for joining me and Sarah for Meatless Monday today! You all know I love my breakfast foods and I have been very into sweet potatoes first thing in the morning lately. I had posted a pic of my sweet potato toast a few weeks back and had a bunch of questions on how to prepare it. It’s ridiculously easy to make and I have come up with a couple of tasty new ways to enjoy it. Today I am sharing my Savory Sweet Potato Toast 2 Ways.
Savory Sweet Potato Toast 2 Ways
I am more of a heartier breakfast food eater than a sweet food eater. I also find that breakfast can be a great opportunity to get a start on my vegetable consumption for the day. So, now that Sweet Potato Toast has kind of become a thing, I’ve been exploring new ways to enjoy this veggie.
A few tips on preparing Savory Sweet Potato Toast
Despite the fact that they are called “toast”, you cannot simply just toast them. The sweet potatoes need to be cooked in advance by roasting them in the oven. It’s very simple to do and you can prep your sweet potatoes for the whole week and then toast them when ready to eat. As I mentioned I enjoy a more savory topping to my sweet potatoes so I came up with two high protein, veggie filled ways to top them. I prepare the toppings, keep them in a separate container then top my toasts with them in the morning. That way I have a few days worth of breakfast ready to go. Easy as pie!
I wanted to create a meal with a balance of carbs and protein. A meal that would keep me going through my morning workouts. Beans are my go to vegetarian protein source and very filling. I’ve created 2 fabulous bean combinations that I know you are going to love as much as I do.
Black Bean and Spinach is one of my go to combos and a fabulous Sweet Potato Toast accompaniment. It literally takes about 5 minutes to make this. You simply add your spinach and your black beans to a food processor with a little salsa give it a pulse and voila! Ready to eat.
My second combination is a white bean and kale mix. I added a little deli mustard (strange but good) and a little curry. Gave that all a little pulse in the food processor and you are good to go. Warm it up in the microwave when you are ready to eat.
