Sweet Potato Crostini

Anyone who knows me well, knows that bread and cheese are my kryptonite. I have recently started to cut a little bit of gluten out of my diet for health reasons, which led me to get creative with my crostini recipes. Sweet potatoes make the perfect replacement for the bread with their dense and starchy texture. I topped these little guys off with some creamy goat cheese, crisp pear, walnuts, and honey which made them super satisfying.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 sweet potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • 6-12 oz Goat Cheese
  • 1 pear sliced thinly
  • Handful of micro-greens
  • Handful of walnuts
  • Salt and pepper

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Wash and dry sweet potatoes, and cut into half inch thick slices
  3. Toss slices in a bowl with olive oil, salt, and pepper, coating evenly
  4. Lay out slices on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 10-15 min checking slices halfway through to flip over (they cook quickly)
  5. After sweet potatoes look lightly browned remove from oven and let cool slightly
  6. Add a dollop of goat cheese to each slice, top with a couple walnuts, micro-greens, and drizzle with honey

(Will make 12-15 Crostini)
