  • 1 pound sweet potatoes (about 2 small or 1 large potato), washed
  • ½ cup part skim ricotta cheese

  1. Pierce the sweet potatoes all over with a knife. Place them on a plate and microwave until cooked, 7-8 minutes, turning over halfway through.
  2. Put the ricotta in a food processor and blend until creamy. Scoop the sweet potato from their skins and add it to the food processor along with the maple syrup and cinnamon. Blend until smooth.
  3. Turn the broiler on. Place the naan on a baking sheet and spray them lightly on both sides with cooking spray. Heat them under the broiler about 1-2 minutes on each side until lightly toasted.
  4. To assemble the crostini, cut each naan into 4 pieces. Spread some of the sweet potato mixture on each piece and top with chopped pecans. Drizzle with a little maple syrup and serve.
