Skip the bread and toast up some washed, dried and sliced sweet potato. You can use your toaster (just set it sideways) or your oven if you’re cooking up a batch. Top with your favourite ingredients or take our cue and go either sweet or savoury!
Sweet Potato Toast Two Ways: Sweet & Savoury

Total time: 30 min
1 medium sweet potato (11/2 lb/750 g), cut lengthwise into eight 1/4-in. (5-mm) thick slices

2 tbsp (30 mL) plain Greek yogourt
1 tbsp (15 mL) honey
1/4 tsp (1 mL) lemon zest
