We are loving our new spiralizer here at Dragonfly Hill, the possibilities are endless for the veggies we find at the farmers market. This morning for breakfast we whipped up some waffles with the new waffle maker Brian's daughter Lindsey got for him for fathers day. This blog post is an homage to Inspiralized
This is a wonderful blog with fabulous recipes have a good long look !!
Using the medium blade spiral up the sweet potatoes, I used one potato each for the waffles but I found for us one good sized sweet potato would do the trick if we halved it.
The potatoes need to be softened up just a bit before they are put in the waffle maker so cook in a large skillet with a little cooking spray till you have a softish consistency. The recipe I followed from Insprilized said 10 mins.
After the sweet potatoes are cooked place them in a large bowl and sprinkle with 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. The combinations are endless, cinnamon, allspice, you could add pecans or walnuts or even raisins or dried cranberries, who knew veggies could be so much fun !?
Here in Maine the maple syrup is wonderful so we buy ours at the local farmers market, unlike my friend at Achorn Farms who has been known to tap a tree or two. Have a look at her amazing blog as well, we could all take a few lessons in life from this homesteader.
Real honest to goodness maple syrup is the only way to top these beauties, no butter or sugar needed. Oh and remember sweet potatoes have a low GI (glycemic index) no insulin spikes and you'll feel full much longer than a floury sugar loaded crepe or pancake. Enjoy !!!
This is the recipe from Inspiralized
1 medium sweet potato peeling removed and spirilized with a medium blade
1 tsp pumpkin spice
1 medium egg, beaten
1 tbsp maple syrup
Heat up the waffle iron.
Place a large skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray.
Add the sweet potato noodles to the skillet and cook, turning frequently, for about 10 minutes or until noodles have completely softened.
Add the noodles into a bowl and add in the pumpkin spice. Mix to combine thoroughly.
Add in the full egg and toss to combine.
Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray and pack in the noodles. You may have to play around with the noodles to get them to fit in all of the grooves.
Cook the waffle according to the iron's settings.
Serve with maple syrup.
