There's a new trend dominating the foodie world in the shape of Supercharged Sweet Potato Toast! Gluten free foodies can rejoice in this delicious slow energy releasing and inexpensive breakfast. The topping opportunities are endless too with both sweet and savoury options pairing nicely.
Lee Holmes shares three of her favourites. Golden, guilt free and gluten-less slices of goodness are the go!
Slice sweet potato length ways into slices about 0.5-1cm thick (this will depend on how much knife control you have as well as the quality of your knifes!)
Put in toaster for between 2 to 4 rounds on high, making sure it doesn’t burn
Tip: use chopsticks to manoeuvre them out of the toaster if they get stuck!
