I’ve been wanting to make savory waffles for a while now, I finally did it and now kicking myself for not doing it sooner. I’m not entirely sure where this idea came from, but I sure am glad I gave it a go. It probably stemmed from the fact that I had to use up these sweet potatoes and it was a toss up between waffles or gnocchi (which that is still burning in my brain- so maybe that will be on here soon too!). Waffles won obvi, so here we are.
Now I have to admit, sage isn’t a spice I use a whole lot. It has a very distinct flavor, and for me, a little goes a long way. So I was a bit leary to create this sage butter gravy- but guys, don’t skip this part because it actually might be my favorite part of this recipe! It’s SO tasty. I will warn you, it’s a bit rich- so a little goes a long way, but oh.yum. And spinach goes with anything, really- but also a very nice paired with the sweet potatoes and gravy. Let’s take a closer look at what all is in this recipe and how you can make these at home!
So the waffles are made with
⤐ sweet potato
⤐ gluten-free flour
⤐ baking powder
⤐ almond milk
And the Sage Butter Gravy is made with
⤐ coconut milk
⤐ fresh sage leaves
⤐ vegan butter
⤐ minced garlic
⤐ almond milk
⤐ fresh spinach
See?! It’s really pretty simple. And the leftovers heat up well too (I literally just finished them). Change up your waffle game and try some savory waffles instead of the traditional sweet ones and I bet you’ll fall in love. Oooh and don’t tell the kiddos, but you can trick them into eating more veggies disguised in waffle form… wink wink.
