What a healthy way to start your day with these delicious sweet potato waffles!
- 12 ounces peeled sweet potato
- 1 medium egg
- 2 tablespoons diced onion (optional)
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- Shred the sweet potato.
- Mix the salt, pepper, onion and egg in with the sweet potato and stir well to combine.
- Lightly oil the waffle maker with 1 teaspoon of olive oil.
- Arrange the sweet potato mix onto the waffle maker so the sweet potato mixture covers the entire mold.
- Close the cover of the machine and allow to cook 10 to 15 minutes. The actual time will depend on the waffle maker. You want the waffle to be a little crispy, and toasted brown when it is done.
Hey, it’s me again. It has been a long time since my last post—too long. Other responsibilities and obligations have kept me from posting, but I’m back now and it’s time to get on to food talk.
Halloween has come and gone and Thanksgiving is near. It’s a perfect time for eating Fall root vegetables. One tuber that is naturally sweet and full of nutrients is the sweet potato, and here are just some of the ways I take great pleasure in eating them: Tex-Mex stuffed sweet potatoes, sweet potato curry, spiced sweet potatoes, sweet potato casserole, and sweet potato hash with apples and mint. Now I have a new and fun way to eat them—waffled!
Many American families have great memories of family around the kitchen table on week-ends eating pancakes or waffles. They are truly classic comfort foods. Although waffles do take longer to cook than pancakes they are worth the wait! Sweet potato waffles are sort of a combination of hash browns and a waffle, and the good news is that they don’t need syrup to taste good. A gooey and fun way to eat them is topped with a fried egg: it’s a winning combination. They’re also delicious with kale salad, Indian spiced cauliflower, Swiss chard sautéed with garlic, or sautéed apples.
Here are some other benefits of sweet potato waffles. They are good for breakfast, lunch or dinner, they can be made ahead and frozen, and they are packed with vitamins A and C, anti-inflammatory properties, manganese, potassium and fiber. So, head to the kitchen this week-end and get your waffles on. (Be aware it takes about 15 minutes to cook 2 waffles in double waffle iron, however they can cook as you do other things).
Stay tuned for future recipes!
