Vegan Bruschetta

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 2 people


yam toast

  • 1 medium yam or sweet potato (sliced into disks that are roughly 1/8" thick)
  • 1-2 tbsp avocado oil (make sure yams are lightly coated in oil)
  • pinch of salt

tomato mixture

  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • 4 basil leaves
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt to taste

Optional Toppings

  • 1 avocado


  • Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Slice the yam into circular discs that are roughly 1/8" in thickness. Coat both sides generously with oil (but not dripping). Sprinkle with a little salt.
  • Place the yams on the baking sheet, spread out nicely from one another. Bake on one side for 15-20 minute and then flip them, and bake for another 10-15 minutes. You want the yams to look golden.
  • While the yams are baking, prepare the tomato topping. Add the basil leaves and the garlic cloves (skins removed) to a food processor and pulse until both have been finely chopped. Cut the roma tomatoes into quarters and then add to the garlic and basil mixture in the food processor. Gently pulse the mixture to chop up tomatoes. You want a chunky texture here, not a tomato sauce!
  • Place the tomatoes, basil and garlic into a bowl, add the balsamic vinegar, salt and oil. Adjust seasonings as desired.  Set aside.
  • If adding avocado to the bruschetta. Remove the fleshy part of the avocado into a bowl and mash accordingly. Set aside.
  • Once the yam toast is done, let it cool for a few minutes. Then top each piece with mashed avocado and the tomato mixture. Enjoy immediately.


I do not suggest topping the yams and letting them sit. They will get soggy. HIGHLY suggest eating the bruschetta immediately once the yams have been topped.
