Stokes Purple sweet potato crostini with goat cheese

Recipe by:Frieda's Specialty Produce, Los Alamitos

Ingredients

  • 2 large Stokes Purple sweet potatoes, unpeeled (5 to 6 inches long)
    2 tbsp. olive oil
    1 tbsp. sea salt
    4 oz. goat cheese

    Suggested topping combinations:
    • Chopped walnuts, thinly sliced Manchego cheese, fresh thyme and balsamic glaze
    • Sliced pear, fresh rosemary and honey¬†
    • Thinly sliced Manchego cheese, pomegranate arils and honey

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Slice sweet potatoes into 1/4-inch rounds and add to large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Toss to coat. Divide sweet potato rounds between two baking sheets; arrange in single layer so they crisp evenly. Roast 15 minutes, then flip and roast 5 minutes more. When done, edges should be golden brown.

Remove sweet potato rounds from oven and spread each with a dollop of goat cheese (about 1/2 tsp.). Return to oven for a minute or two, just until cheese starts to melt.

Transfer sweet potato crostini to serving platter and add desired toppings and drizzles.
