Sweet-Potato Waffles With Blueberry Syrup















Low in Saturated Fat, Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber


For the syrup:
1 ½ cups blueberries
fresh or frozen
2 tablespoons water
if using fresh berries
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons molasses
1 pinch cloves, ground
For the waffles:
cup sweet potatoes, or yams
peeled and diced
¾ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup whole-wheat flour
¼ cup cornmeal
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
teaspoon cinnamon
teaspoon ginger
1 cup soy milk
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large egg whites


To make the syrup, in a saucepan, combine the blueberries, water (if using), lemon juice and zest, honey, 1 tablespoon of the molasses, and cloves.

Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer until the berries burst and the juices are slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

Frozen berries may take slightly longer to thicken.

Set aside and keep warm.

If using sweet potato, bring a small saucepan half full of water to a boil.

Add the sweet potato, return to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until very tender, about 10 minutes.

Drain and purée in a food processor or mash with a potato masher until smooth.

Set aside.

If using pumpkin purée, reserve.

In a small bowl, sift together the flours, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and ginger.

In a large bowl, whisk together the soy milk, sweet potato purée, olive oil and the remaining 2 tablespoons molasses.

Add the flour mixture and stir just until combined.

Using an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg white until stiff peaks form.

Make sure that the mixing bowl and beaters are spotlessly clean and free of fat.

Even a small amount of fat, such as egg yolk or oil, can prevent the egg whites from whipping properly.

Once whipped, gently whisk ⅓ of the egg white into the batter to lighten it.

Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the remaining egg white into the batter, mixing just until incorporated.

Place a baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 225 F.

Preheat a waffle iron.

Spoon or ladle about ½ cup batter into the waffle iron, depending on the size of the iron.

Spread evenly and cook according to the manufacturer's instructions.

If the batter thickens, thin with a little soy milk.

Transfer the waffle to the baking sheet in the oven to keep warm.

Repeat with the remaining batter to make 6 waffles.

Serve topped with the syrup.

I found that this recipe doesn't make 6 waffles if you are doing 1/2c batter per waffle. More like 5.
