Tostis may be tasty, but not always the most responsible choice. Fortunately, there is plenty to vary! Of course you can opt for more responsible topping up your sandwich, but there are also much more thorough adjustments possible. Sweet potato sandwiches are a good example of this.
These are sandwiches, but with sweet potato instead of bread. Does that sound like a weird idea? Mumbai Square explains to you today why you should definitely try this. And of course we give you a big list of variations to invest your sweet potato sandwich. So you have enough inspiration for lunch next week.
Why Less bread?
The first question we have to answer is of course: why would we want to change the favorite like the sandwich? Why not just use bread? In principle, of course, there is nothing wrong with bread, as long as you use a healthy type. It can provide useful carbohydrates, along with iron and vitamins that you find in wholegrain cereals.
Unfortunately, many people do not want to be healthy. Especially if your breakfast is already made out of sandwiches, some variation with lunch cannot hurt. And if you eat your sandwiches on the supermarket, it is advisable to change that in any case!
Sweet Potato Healthy
And why replace that bread with sweet potato? Sweet potatoes are – like ordinary potatoes – an excellent source of carbohydrates. They contain fibers that ensure a gradual absorption of the sugars.
There are several vitamin B vitamins and vitamin C in addition to beta-carotene, a substance that your body vitamin A to make. Finally, the sweet potato is rich in minerals: calcium, phosphorus, iron, potassium and copper. Certainly not bad for a snack or snack, in other words!
Prepare Sweet Potato Sandwich
Many people eat sweet potatoes cooked or grilled, but (almost) raw they are also delicious. This is good for the sweet potato sandwiches. It is the best when the slices are a bit crunchy! You are doing this by simply grilling the sweet potato in your sandwich iron. Cut a sweet potato in thin slices lengthwise.
Not too fat, because then it takes hours before it is all done. Stick the slices with your toppings of your choice, put them together and slide them on the grill or in your sandwich iron. Depending on the thickness, your sandwich will be ready after 3 to 5 minutes.
Or make sweet potato ‘crackers’!
Another option is of course not to invest double but few slices. So you use the slices of sweet potato more like a kind of crackers. This can also be varied indefinitely.
So you can cut round slices instead of elongated slices. If you invest with some nice toppings, then you have the ideal snack. It is also easy that you can prepare the sweet potato in your toaster. After all, you do not have any filling that easily falls out!
