grain free yam toast

I love that this toast has yams in place of bread. If you know me, you know I love yams because they’re low-glycemic compared to sweet potatoes, but still have that delicious flavor. I love subbing grilled or toasted yams for any toast: egg salad, turkey & cheese, almond butter with banana & honey, or avocado & sea salt!

But my favorite part of this toast is that it inspired me to create paleo carrot turmeric hummus. I love anything that reduces waste, and I use the nut pulp from making almond milk as the base for this hummus instead of chickpeas, making it paleo-friendly!

Hope you enjoy this yam toast. It’s on the specials menu at The Source Cafe for a limited time!


2 yams, peeled and sliced into ½ inch pieces

2 radishes, sliced


Sea salt

Flax oil or avocado oil

Paleo Carrot Turmeric Hummus


Toast yam slices on high in a toaster twice.
