Avocado toast has reigned supreme as the go-to millennial breakfast for quite some time.

Being one of the most Instagrammable members of the breakfast family, the dish remains in the top spot as one of the trendiest foods to eat for breakfast or for brunch.

Some like it topped off with an egg, while others drizzle a bit of pesto or herbs, but an Australian based foodie has come up with a new way to enjoy the popular meal.

Ayeh Far who uses her Instagram and TikTok to share plant focussed recipes, posted her version of the sweet potato avocado toast recipe.

For her dish she stacked smashed avocado, rocket leaves and grilled haloumi onto a sweet potato slice. Yes, in this recipe the toast is a slice of sweet potato.

In the video that has over 200,000 views on Instagram, Far can be seen slicing up a sweet potato lengthways to form thick slices. She then places them on a baking tray to be cooked for about 15 minutes or until soft.

While the potatoes are in the oven Far fried some chopped haloumi pieces in a pan until golden brown and then smashed some avocado.

Once she was done assembling her unique meal she topped it off by adding a teaspoon of honey, lemon juice and chili flakes.
