On a previous post –https://goodnessgreen.blog/2019/04/09/sweet-potato-sub/ I’ve discussed my two ingredient sweet potato waffles for my sweet potato subs which are so quick and easy to make. These waffles are a little denser and wholesome as they contain nut flour and egg white.
Either way you make them they are delicious and a great breakfast meal.
- 1 cup of pancake mix (see previous pancake posts)
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 egg white
- 50g sweet potato mash
- 1 tsp Paprika
- Pinch Salt and cracked pepper
- Sprinkle of chilli flakes
- ½ tsp of garlic powder
In two separate bowls add egg white to one bowl, whisk up until light and fluffy, then in the second bowl add the remaining ingredients and mix together.
When the egg white is fully whisked with stiff peaks, start to fold in the sweet potato ingredients to create a thick batter and add to a heated waffle iron – this will take around 10 mins to fully cook.
Here, I have added a poached eggs, sweet potato, red cabbage, red onion, mushroom and radish to bulk it out and I must say it works great. Add whatever toppings take your fancy.
All the same ingredients, with added beetroot, you can add fresh raw beetroot by peeling the skin, dicing and cooking in hot water, when soft or you can purchase pre blanched beetroot balls which are already peeled and soft. Add the beetroot to your ingredients remaining ingredients to blitz up in a food processor.
Adding beetroot adds a little extra sweetness and let’s be honest they’re so PRETTY and PINK!
Why try Beetroot?
Beetroot is packed with essential nutrients, they are a great source of fiber, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C.
Beetroots has been shown to improve blood flow, lower blood pressure, and increased exercise performance.
If you’re ever thinking of adding sweetness to any meal try a root vegetable such as roots and tubers as these contain many quality slow burning sugars.
