The list of ingredients and products to pick up at the market
For the waffles:
A waffle iron
300 g sweet potato cut into large cubes
Spices to your liking (curry, paprika, garlic powder, nutmeg, etc.)
100g of flour
A little sunflower oil for the waffle maker
For the smoothie
1 banana, sliced
1 peeled kiwi
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp. c. green spirulina powder (optional)
10 cl of water, or more according to the desired consistency
How to prepare healthy sweet potato waffles?
Cook the sweet potato in boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes, until tender. When the sweet potato is cooked, drain it and mash it.
Put the puree in a salad bowl, add the spices of your choice, then the eggs and the
Mix until a homogeneous paste is obtained.
Place the dough in the waffle iron, lightly oiled.
Let the waffles cook for a good 15 minutes. They will not suffer from overtime
cooking, quite the contrary. On the other hand, removing them too soon may complicate their exit from the waffle maker. The longer, the better.*
As with pancakes, baking the first waffle is rarely a success. Don't be discouraged, however, the second cooking will be perfect ;) For the garnish, treat yourself: mashed avocado , soft- boiled egg , grilled peppers , feta cheese , smoked salmon ... Anything is possible!
How to prepare the green smoothie?
Whatever the option, put the ingredients in the blender for a few seconds and enjoy immediately.
