Makes 2 Servings
- 2 slices sprouted grain bread
- 1 c mashed cooked sweet potato (1 sweet potato); peel removed (see note)
- 2 1/2 tsp (12.5 mL) lemon juice
- 1/8 tsp (0.6 mL) iodized salt
- to taste ground black pepper (optional)
- 1/2 avocado, cubed or 2 tbsp (30mL) black olives, sliced
Toast the bread.
In a small bowl, mash the sweet potato with lemon juice (adjusting to taste), salt, and pepper (if using).
Distribute the mashed sweet potato between the slices of toast, and top with either the cubed avocado or, if preferred, black olives. Serve!
Note: It's useful to bake sweet potatoes in advance. Place whole sweet potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Bake at 450 F (232 C) for 40 to 60 minutes, or until very soft. (Cooking time will depend on the size of the sweet potato.) Store in the fridge until ready to use (up to 6 days) or in the freezer for a couple of months.
