Recipe for Sweet Potato Waffles
Start by cooking your sweet potatoes in pieces after removing the skin. You can choose to steam them, or as I did in this recipe, cook them in a pot of boiling water.
Once cooked, place the sweet potatoes in a bowl and add the spices mentioned above, or those of your choice. Don’t forget the salt.
Using a fork, mash the mixture until all the pieces are removed.
Then add the wheat flour, vegetable milk ( Plant milk ), and oil. Mix energetically. The resulting batter will be thick, but nothing to worry about. They are not pancakes… :).
Put your waffle iron to preheat while your batter rests for about 5 minutes.
When you’re ready to spread your sweet potato waffle batter on the waffle iron, make sure you’ve oiled the plates. It will be easier to remove the waffles later.
Put a good spoonful of batter on the plates, but don’t spread it out if you want rounded waffles. Close the waffle iron for about 5 minutes, without opening it so that the waffles can brown.
Now it’s time to enjoy your sweet potato waffles. For an appetizer, you can choose to put a coarsely crushed avocado on top and sprinkle some coarse salt and spices on it. You can also make vegan scrambled eggs with tofu. To give your waffles a more spectacular look, why not turn them into a sandwich loaf?
