Kumara Toast with Toppings

Prep time: 5 minutes | Cook time: 10 minutes | Serves 2

1-2 medium sized red or orange kumara

Toppings of your choice: 

Suggestions include: hummus, avocado slices, rocket or spinach leaves, dairy free feta, cream cheese or ricotta, dairy free pesto, sliced cucumber, sliced tomato, sliced red pepper, a good grinding of black pepper.

Cut off the ends of the kumara and scrub clean leaving the kumara skin on to retain the fibre. 

Preheat your sandwich press (or you can use a toaster if you don’t have one). 

Slice kumara into about ½ cm – ¾ cm thick pieces lengthwise. Cook in the sandwich press with the lid down or in the toaster until brown and cooked through – there is no need to precook the kumara first, it will cook through using either of these methods – you will need to cook it 3 or 4 times in the toaster. Once cooked, allow to cool and then top with your favourite toppings. This is a fantastic well balanced lunch that will keep you sustained and full for hours!
