potato & spinach waffle
So... I may have bought a new foodie gadget, and I may be having way too much fun with it! So I am now sharing the outcome of my very first waffle creation and certainly not the last!
The best thing about this one – in addition to containing greens, is that I am using mashed potato. So so simple, could be a leftover in your fridge, and you will have a fab breakfast or delicious lunchbox item!

the health boost tip
Waffles are so much fun and always sound like such a treat. Going savoury, and adding your choice of greens into the batter might just be what you need to increase your all important daily portions of vegetables. The spinach could easily be substituted for chopped kale or grated courgettes.
These waffles will keep in the fridge for a next day lunch box and can also be frozen. Another addition to the batch cooking list for all of us time-poor busy families.
