Slice sweet potato lengthwise into toasts (as many as you’d like to eat), ~½-inch thick.
(Be careful slicing your toasts, especially with firm sweet potatoes! I recommend using the tip of your knife to score your sweet potato all the way around, along the line you plan to cut first. And, it can help to microwave your sweet potato for 1-2 minutes to soften it up just a bit.)
Toast slices in your toaster or toaster oven, until starting to blister/brown and soft enough to cut with a knife. (If using a traditional toaster, you may need to run your slices through the toaster a few times to get them soft.)
Carefully remove slices from toaster. (I use wooden tongs!)
Spread on goat cheese and top with fig slices, pomegranate arils, chopped pistachios, and a sprinkle of fresh thyme.
Serve and enjoy!
Yields 1 serving of 3-4 sweet potato toast slices.
