Turmeric Yam Coconut Crostini \\ Sweet Laurel
We love this fancy yet simple fall flavored appetizer here at Sweet Laurel. Made with our signature Turmeric Bread, the yam puree and coconut cream add the perfect touch to this lovely toast. The flavor is heightened with the Indian spices. I personally love to add some extra cinnamon. You can have fun with your spices and herbs, and add whatever flavor you may be feeling,,, garlic, rosemary, the list goes on! Enjoy.
