Crostini with sweet potato and labneh

Posted by

What started as an experiment became the hero on my brunch table. This light crostini can be described as caramelized sweet potato bits on toasted baguette slices with creamy labneh. It needs a handful of ingredients and gets done in no time. Sweet potato and labneh make an excellent combination and keeps this dish healthy. 

Thyme adds a hint of freshness, and honey makes it sweet. I like the different textures you can feel in each bite. 

It’s a one-pan dish, and you can do the prep beforehand. At the time of serving, assemble the dish. 

Simple flavors and beautiful textures make this dish stand out. Try it out to impress your guests.
