Waffle Kumara Rosti


2 large kumara / sweet potato
1 small onion, diced
2 free-range egg
Pinch of pink himalayan rock salt
Handful of herbs, parsley or chives work well.
1 tsp fat (grass-fed butter, coconut oil or ghee) - optional

Special equipment
Waffle maker - I used Breville's The Waffle 


Step one
Pre-heat your waffle maker. 

Step two
Grate kumara/sweet potato  and add to large bowl. Sprinkle generously with salt and allow to sit for 10 minutes to drain excess moisture. Taking a tea towel, add the grated sweet potato and squeeze our excess moisture.

Step three
Add back to the bowl (make sure this is dry!), adding your onions, herbs and egg. Mix together to combine.

Step four
Distribute the mix evenly across your waffle maker. 

Step five
Serve with your favourite accompaniments. I enjoy these as a base for eggs benedict or as an alternative for toast!
