Riced Cauliflower Waffles

Ever tried a waffle made from riced cauliflower?! Game changer. Frozen riced cauliflower is sucha staple in my freezer. I literally use it in everything- my smoothies, to make cauliflower fried rice, and now waffles! It’s so easy to have on hand plus has no sugar and is super low cal. One waffle is made with sweet potato and egg and topped with carmelized apple slices and roasted pecans the other waffle is made with riced cauliflower and egg and topped with 1/2 of an avocado. Search my blog for how to make sweet potato waffles and see below the recipe to make riced cauliflower waffles!

Ingredients (only 3!):
1 cup Frozen riced cauliflower
1 egg
avocado oil
option: Add 1 scoop of collagen peptides

Directions:
1. Place the frozen riced cauliflower in a bowl and microwave until defrosted.
2. In a food processor or blender, add the riced cauliflower and 1 egg and blend until you have a mixture of even consistency. You may need to add a tbsp or two of water if you are having trouble mixing the riced cauliflower and the egg.
3. Coat waffle maker with avocado oil. I like using a cooking oil spray pump to do this so that I do not use too much oil.
4. Add the mixture to the waffle maker and cook until the waffle maker indicates that it is complete!

The cauliflower waffle will definitely be for more of a savory waffle combo. Top it with a fried egg, a half of an avocado, and hot sauce! Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Waffles🍠🍂🍁

I’m a HUGE sweet potato fan. It’s definitely one of my favorite vegetables, even if it’s on the starchy side. I impulse bought a waffle maker earlier this week because I wanted to make some sweet potato waffles. It did take me a couple of tries to get the recipe down, but now that I did it is so easy to make and you can do soo much with it. I’ve made both sweet and savory revisions of sweet potato waffles and all that you have to vary is what you season them with and what you add as toppings. I’ll show both a savory and sweet version of sweet potato waffles that I made so you can get some ideas.

Savory sweet potato waffle breakfast sandwich:

I seasoned this sweet potato waffle with salt and pepper. I used the entire batter to make one large waffle. I then topped this waffle with egg, sliced avocado, and hot sauce to make a breakfast sandwich. It was soo good!

Sweet sweet potato waffle recipe:

I seasoned this sweet potato waffle with cinnamon, nutmeg, and a 1/2 tsp of monkfruit (optional) for a little extra sweet flavor. I cooked half the batter twice to make two medium sized sweet potato waffles. I topped this with coconut cream, pecans, and maple syrup.

Below is the general recipe to make the waffles:

 

Ingredients:

Coconut oil

2 medium sweet potatoes

2 tbsp tiger nut flour

1 tsp baking soda

2 eggs

1 scoop of collagen protein

Seasoning: salt and black pepper for savory flavors, cinnamon, nutmeg, and (optional: monkfruit sweetener) for sweet flavors

 

Directions:

1. Turn on waffle maker to warm it up.

2. Coat the waffle maker well with coconut oil. Make sure it is evenly distributed throughout so the waffle doesn’t stick to the waffle maker.

3.  Make a small cut in each sweet potato and place in microwave for 5 minutes or until it has completely softened. Allow the sweet potatoes to cool.

4. Remove the peel from the sweet potatoes and mash the sweet potatoes into a medium sized bowl.

5. Add 1 scoop of collagen, tigernut flour, baking soda, eggs, and seasoning to the bowl and mix together.

6. Distribute the contents of the bowl evenly throughout the waffle maker. You can either make 1 large or 2 medium waffles with this batter, depending on how large/small or soft/crispy you want the waffle. For smaller, crispier waffles, split the batter in 2 and only cook 1/2 the batter in the waffle maker at a time.

7. Allow the waffle to cook for 8 to 10 minutes. Ignore the light if the waffle maker says it is ready earlier. Cook for longer if you used the full batter for a larger waffle or if you’d like a crispier waffle.

8. Top waffle with desired toppings!
