Sweet Potato French Toasts

WP_20150729_010

Yet another breakfast recipe that will transform your kitchen with the delicious and sweet aroma. This french toasts are smooth, sweet, healthy and nutritious. The texture is soft. It was pretty fun to experiment with this recipe. Sweet potatoes are my favorites kind of tubercules. They are naturally sweet and possess many vitamins and minerals that are essential for our body. I love to eat baked sweet potatoes with peanut or almond butter. If they have it as a compliment in a restaurant, believe me that I will order it.

Do not be scare to try this recipe. If you already tried my Pumpkin French Toasts, you will like this even more! I puree about 50g of boiled sweet potato with allspice and water until liquid. Then, I transferred it into a rectangle bowl. I soaked the halves of bread in the sweet potato and then, soaked it in the eggwhites. I cooked them in the pan and they were soft and juicy. I had the idea to make a niche topping so I heated a bunch of blueberries with chopped pecans until fragrant and juicy. I could not resist peanut butter so I drizzled a bit.

First, blend the sweet potato with the water and add the cinnamon, allspice and vanilla. Once liquid, transfer it to a squared bowl.
