• 3 large eggs
• 2 cups grated zucchini, unpeeled (about 2 small)
• 1.5 cups cassava flour
• 1/3 cup finely diced pitted dates
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• a pinch or two of nutmeg
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
• 4 tablespoons softened butter or ghee
• 1/3 cup raw honey
• 1/2 cup chopped pecans
• 2 ounces chopped 72% dark chocolate
Preheat your waffle iron.
Whisk eggs until frothy. Add remaining ingredients except for the pecans and dark chocolate. Fold them into the already blended batter at the end. This “batter” is not runny like traditional waffle batters.
Scoop three ice cream scoops of batter per waffle. Let cook for 2-3 minutes depending on how hot your waffle iron gets and whether it is a shallow waffle or a Belgium waffle. The waffle should have a light-medium browning.
Serve with pure maple syrup and a refreshing SUNRISE SMOOTHIE!
1/2 cup chopped soft sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
Layer two 24-in. pieces of aluminum foil; starting with a long side, fold up foil to create a 1-in.-wide strip. Shape strip into a coil to make a rack for bottom of a 6-qt. oval slow cooker. Add water to slow cooker; set foil rack in water.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add potato and onion; cook and stir 5-7 minutes or until potato is lightly browned. Stir in paprika. Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish (dish must fit in slow cooker).
In a large bowl, whisk eggs, thyme, pepper sauce, salt and pepper; stir in 2 ounces cheese. Pour over potato mixture. Top with tomatoes and remaining goat cheese. Place dish on foil rack.
Cook, covered, on low 3-4 hours or until eggs are set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Test Kitchen tips
We tested this recipe with tomatoes that are ready to use without soaking. When using whole sun-dried tomatoes that are not oil-packed, cover with boiling water and let stand until soft. Drain before chopping.
Smoked paprika adds a rich flavor to this dish. You can also use it in recipes that call for ground chipotle pepper.
No feta? Cream cheese or mascarpone mixed with yogurt, for tanginess, will work.
