Sweet Potato Waffles with Raspberries and Sausage

This morning I finally tried out this sweet potato waffle recipe. Although it tastes good, they weren’t crispy in the slightest and were more like the consistency of fluffy pancakes. I wonder if they’d crisp more with a bit more coconut flour. I have made coconut flour waffles before and was able to get them sorta crispy. The addition of sweet potato must make these more squishy.

The raspberries are fresh from the backyard.

Maple syrup from a local farmer.

I made the sausage patties from local grass-fed beef. Unfortunately, I discovered that we are all out of sage, so I wasn’t able to get the taste I wanted.

All in all, a good grain-free breakfast 🙂 err… dessert? 😉

I’m happy to be able to do these posts on my phone. It makes uploading pics waaay easier and faster… which makes blogging waaay faster.
However, it’s not the same with my main blog. A phone is not ideal for lots of typing!

Sweet Potato “Chili”

This soup is delicious. Even my husband loves it (we don’t normally LOVE the same foods). This “chili” has all the right flavors and textures.

This is an adaption from this website.

Again, I give no measurement for spices because I never measure them myself.

4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
4-5 medium carrots, chopped into small chunks
3-4 large ribs of celery, chopped thin
1 bell pepper, chopped into small pieces
2-3 cups frozen green beans And/OR
1 large zuchini, quartered and chopped*
1 can diced tomatoes
1 quart chicken broth (I make my own)
1 pound ground beef (local grass-fed!)
Cumin
Paprika
Oregano
Salt

*I recently had to substitute zuchini for the green beans because the beans make my baby spit up. I still wanted something green so I chose zucchini

Throw all the veggies, tomatoes, and spices together in a large crockpot and cook on high for about 4-5 hours.
At that time, fry the ground beef in skillet (I use cast-iron) and season how you please (I’ve actually been doing Italian Seasoning and salt). I leave the meat a bit pink and then add to the soup (it’ll keep cooking in the soup and we really dislike overcooking beef). And turn off your crockpot because it’s done cooking 🙂 I like to add salt and extra seasonings at the end.
