  • Skillet
  • Baking sheet


  • 2 thick slices of sourdough bread buttered on each side
  • 2 ounces tender baby greens
  • 1 large ripe tomato trimmed and sliced into 4 rounds
  • 3 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil divided, plus more for serving
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 small sweet potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 1 shallot peeled and diced
  • 1 Thai chili pepper optional, trimmed and minced (or use crushed red pepper)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup more or less depending on preference


  • Preheat the oven to 300ºF.
  • Dress the greens with 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Transfer the tomatoes to a paper towel lined plate and sprinkle with salt. Set aside.
  • Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the sweet potatoes and cook for 10 minutes until they begin to char and brown, stirring regularly. Add the shallot and cook an additional 10-15 minutes, adjusting the heat as necessary, until the sweet potatoes are fork tender and the shallots are softened. Season with salt and pepper. Turn the heat to low.
  • As the sweet potatoes are cooking, transfer the bread to the oven on a baking sheet until toasted. Turn off the oven after 10 minutes and keep the bread warm in the oven.
  • Add the minced Thai chili pepper or a sprinkle of crushed red pepper if using and add the maple syrup. Turn the heat to medium and cook until the potatoes are well coated, about 1-3 minutes more. Turn off the heat.
  • To Serve: Place each toast on a plate and pile the dressed greens on top. Place two tomato rounds on top of each toast and pile the sweet potatoes on top. Drizzle each toast with a touch of extra virgin olive oil and garnish with flaky sea salt, if desired. Enjoy!
