Sweet potato toast: the latest and tastiest food trend

We love a good food hack. Novelty factor aside, they provide new and often more efficient ways of eating your favourite foods.

Boiling your egg in a kettle, for instance, saves on space and appliances – just make sure you don’t break it unless you don’t mind sulphuric-smelling tea. Remember that an egg that sinks to the bottom of the water indicates freshness, while a floating egg is old.

Squeezing a half-cut lemon with the middle part of a pair of solid tongs extracts the most juice, while wrapping your fresh herbs in a damp tea towel will keep them fresh for longer.

Glass jars or bottles can double as vases and storage to keep your asparagus fresh for up to two weeks (add a couple of centimetres of water to the bottom of the jar).

There are hundreds more hacks, but one of the latest and best food hacks since sliced bread has got to be sweet potato toast.

Not just for the gluten-free brigade, it’s an easy and tasty way to get in an extra serve of veggies, something most of us can really do with.

While it will take longer to toast than normal bread, you can use any spread that you’d usually use.

Simply peel your sweet potato and cut it into thin slices (about 3/4 of a centimetre in width), as you would with a loaf of bread. Pop the slice in your toaster – you may need to do this several times, as it can take up to 8 minutes to cook – and wait for it to brown (it should be tender but not mushy).

Try spreading it with avocado, a squeeze of lemon and lashings of salt and pepper or take a ride on the sweet side and try it with nutella and strawberries or nut butter with dates or banana. Or pretty much any combination you’d put in a sandwich or on an ordinary slice of toast.

Let us know what you think and what the best topping is?
