Coconut Curry Yam Crostini Recipe

Coconut Curry Yam Crostini Recipe

I’ll be honest, I would have a hard time passing up anything the lovely ladies of Sweet Laurel Bakery whipped up, even if it wasn’t of the all natural, grain-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free variety. Happily, I don’t have to worry about it, because everything that comes out of their kitchen is all those things, not to mention incredibly delicious. My newest obsession: their Coconut Curry Yam Crostini. Combining some of my favorite flavors, it practically screams fall, and would make the perfect app for a cool weather dinner party. XXJKE

Scoop a few tablespoons onto each piece of toast. Drizzle with coconut milk and garnish with cilantro.
