The waffle diet

The waffle diet - potato blini waffle

Updated: Mar 30

It's been about two weeks with no bread or dairy, and I was starting to get tired of eating oatmeal, oats with almond milk or smoothie bowls for breakfast, so I decided to up my game with an electric waffle iron. Yes, I purchased the cheapest model I could get my hands on to try it out, and you know what - it's freakin' GREAT!



But hey, life is not just breakfast waffles and berries, no - that's too easy, so I decided to eat one meal a day made in the waffle iron, also now known as the "The waffle diet" So here comes the first recipe.


Day 1 of the waffle diet, Potato waffle, blini-style

I searched around and found a recipe for blini ( By danish chef Adam Aamann), made with boiled potatoes, butter and creme fraiche.

However I can eat 2 out of three ( if you wanna know why click here), so I tweaked the recipe and here is my version:



Crispy potato waffle with lumpfish roe

Potato waffle with lumpfish roe and yoghurt

makes 4 waffles.


Ingredients:

  • 300 g of potato

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil

  • 150 ml. plant based yoghurt (I used oat - you can use dairy)

  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder

  • 1 tbsp. oat flour (you can use wheat flour)

  • 1 egg

  • salt, pepper and freshly ground nutmeg to taste.


Topping:

  • 200 g lumpfish roe

  • 1/2 red onion

  • 100 ml. plant based yoghurt (I used soy - you can use dairy )

  • dill

  • lemon zest and juice

  • salt to taste


Step 1.

Peel and boil the potatoes, cook until they are overcooked and break easily.


Step 2.

Strain the potatoes, and mash them in the pot over low heat to steam them off as much as possible. Remove the pot from the heat.


Step 3.

Add all the dry ingredients and mash it all together, then all the wet ingredients and mix until even.


Step 4.

Turn on waffle iron, I set it on max heat. spray with a tiny bit of oil.

Mentally vision and divide the potato mash into four portions and put one of the portions in the middle of the waffle iron, close it up and cook for about 3-4 minutes.


Step 5.

Repeat step 4. three more times.


Step 6.

Peel and mince the onions.

Season lumpfish roe with salt and lemon juice.


Step 7.

Serve the warm potato waffles topped with yoghurt, lumpfish roe, finely minced red onion, dill and lemon zest.






As you can see, it's easy peasy like 1-2-3 to do these, and you can change the topping to whatever you like. Let me see your creations, tag me on your instagram story @dailystews and I'll give you some emoji love and lots of thumbs up!
