If you’re constantly on-the-go and can’t manage to prepare a healthy breakfast that doesn’t come in a plastic package, then this is something you’ll be interested in.

Create a healthy sandwich packed with sweet potato and kale, in a bed of wholemeal bread. Prepare it the night before, and leave it in the fridge until you’re ready to go!

Ingredients

1 sweet potato, peeled and sliced

2 tbsp olive oil

Salt and black pepper

1/2 small red onion, sliced

4 slices whole grain bread

6 ounces Harvarti cheese (optional)

2 kale leaves

1/2 tsp fresh rosemary, minced

Balsamic glaze or reduction (optional)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF (200ºC) and line a tray with baking paper. In a small bowl, place the sweet potato slices and drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Toss well, then place onto the tray and cook for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Remove from the oven, and set aside.
  2. Caramelise the onion in a small saucepan over medium heat with some olive oil. Season with a pinch of salt, and stir occasionally until onions are medium brown.
  3. Toast the bread, and layer with cheese, sweet potatoes, kale, and caramelised onions. Sprinkle with fresh rosemary, and season with black pepper and salt to taste. Grill on a pan over medium heat if you prefer your toast with extra crunch!
