This year, Valentine’s day happens to fall on a Sunday. If you’re anything like I am, the first thought that entered your head was: brunch. Wonderful and glorious brunch. There’s nothing like having a Sunday morning to really take your time and create the ultimate breakfast spread, especially in celebration of the one you love, even if that person is yourself; because let’s face it- our most important relationship is with ourselves!
So, Sunday morning rolls around and you’re thinking, “what kind of special brunch dish can I make? Perhaps waffles? Eggs Benedict? French toast? What about all three combined? “ When I created this dish I was feeling rather indecisive, so I decided a hybrid dish was the move, and the rest is history! Sweet potato waffle french toast eggs benedict with beet rosewater hollandaise…it is quite a mouthful, but trust me, it is easier to eat than it is to say.
Sweet Potato Waffle French Toast and
Eggs Benedict with Beet Rosewater Hollandaise
Sweet potato waffles //
(waffle recipe adapted from Running to the Kitchen)
What you will need: waffle maker
- 1 cup almond flour
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 medium sweet potato, cooked, skin removed
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1⁄3 cup almond milk
Preheat your waffle iron. Mix together dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl, then mix wet ingredients together in a separate bowl, and finally combine both wet and dry together. Cook the waffles in your waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions. Let waffles cool while you work on the rest of the recipe.
Beet hollandaise //
- 1/4 cup soaked cashews (soak in water for a few hours-overnight)
- 1-2 tsp rosewater (depending on preference, can also be left out)
- 1 beet (peeled and raw or cooked, I used raw)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- pinch of sea salt
- 3 tbsp water
Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender or food processor until you have a smooth and creamy hollandaise sauce, add more water if your mixture is too thick. Okay, now that you’ve made the waffles and the hollandaise, it is time to put it all together!
