Waffling a sweet potato? Yes for sure!

I recently read somewhere that some creative soul had tried to toast sliced sweet potatoes for breakfast and the outcome was amazing!  I chuckled about this to a friend and she goes, “I’m going to try waffling the sweet potato”….just inserting the slices into a waffle iron and letting the iron do its magic.

Well, that was just the push I needed to do this in my own kitchen.  I greased a waffle iron and waffled my sweet potatoes in there.  Unlike a regular waffle, I repeated the process a few times to get the right level of browning.  What came out simply melted in my mouth with just a little bit of butter on top.  To make it a complete breakfast, I added in a soft-boiled egg and a sliced avocado.

Take a look pre and post and do let me know if you’ve tried this!

Got to be honest.  With a little bit of travel and a whole lot of good food and dessert, I wanted something light but nutritious for breakfast.  Something really easy to prepare that would look awesome and be good post a workout.  Well, here’s what I had in my fridge!

Tomato, Egg and Avocao

I hard-boiled the egg and sliced it.  I sliced the tomato 3/4 of the way down. I sliced the avocado.  I inserted the sliced egg and avocado into the folds of the tomato, drizzled the assembled dish with some extra virgin olive oil, did a few turns of freshly ground salt, pepper and presto! Breakfast was ready.

A healthy, post workout breakfast!

 

 

Eggs this elegant could pass for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Can you please tell me if you can relate with me on this habit of mine?  Every time I see a recipe I want to try, I take an image and store it away.  And sometimes when I peep into my refrigerator and/or pantry, I’m uber excited to see I have all the ingredients to create an impromptu surprise.

And that’s how Amelia Freer’s recipe (see link below) for roasted peppers with baked eggs came alive in my kitchen tonight.

Since the recipe is provided in the link below, I’m going to be brief and show you what I had in my kitchen and what the recipe helped me produce!

Here are the ingredients that I had on hand! A nice yellow pepper, some baby spinach, some chopped sun-dried tomatoes, a little harissa (yes I did!), a couple of eggs + salt, pepper and some olive oil (that I missed taking a picture of).
