Sweet Potato “Bread” Is Hot at BeWies: Actually, it’s not bread—it’s roasted sweet potato slices.

Since BeWies Holistic Market in Armonk began serving sandwiches on its house-made sweet potato "bread," it’s been scrambling to keep up with customer demand, says co-owner Amy Berman. “Our newest hot item is our chicken, turkey and vegetarian sandwiches on sweet potato bread. Actually, it’s not bread—it’s roasted sweet potato slices—but we use it as bread for our sandwiches. We can't keep them in our fridge.“

Every day, the market makes nine trays of this gluten-free bread substitute, which starts out as jumbo garnet yams. “We slice the yams into quarter-inch rounds, brush them with a little olive oil, lightly salt them and then roast them to perfection,” Berman says. “Then we build the sandwiches from there. Everything is organic.”

This latest creation is just one more option on BeWies’ growing menu of organic, fresh-made food. The market has become a go-to spot in Westchester for people who want a healthy meal or snack made to order. In addition to juices, smoothies, salads, wraps and acai bowls, BeWies offers a variety of baked treats that are gluten free, nut free and vegan.

BeWies Holistic Market is located at 430 Bedford Rd., Armonk, NY, in the Moderne Barn Plaza. For more info, call 914.273.9437 or visit
