Ingredients
  • 1 loaf gluten-free whole grain Italian bread cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil plus more if needed
  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 small red onion finely chopped
  • Juice of 1 large lemon
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh basil leaves finely chopped
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Large pinch fresh lemon zest
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Poke the sweet potatoes with a fork to make small holes in the potatoes and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until very tender.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the bread slices in a single layer on top of the paper; use a brush to brush on the olive oil on the top of each slice. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Keep the oven on.
  4. Remove the bread and sweet potatoes from oven and peel the sweet potatoes when they are cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes after cooking. Discard peels and mash the inner sweet potato flesh in a medium sized bowl.

  5. Spoon the sweet potato flesh on the top of the toasted bread slices then bake for another 10 minutes or until the sweet potato topping is golden brown and the bread is toasty. Remove from the oven and top each piece with onion, a drizzle of lemon juice, basil, sea salt, pepper and lemon zest. Serve warm.
