  • 2 medium (approx. 220g) Carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 medium (approx. 265g) Sweet Potato, peeled and grated
  • 1 cup (125g) Cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup (70g) Plain Wholemeal Flour
  • 1 Spring onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 Eggs, lightly beaten


  1. Add the grated carrot, sweet potato, cheese, spring onion, parsley and wholemeal flour into a large mixing bowl and stir until combined. SEE NOTE 1

  2. Add the eggs and mix well.

  3. Spray waffle machine with oil (if needed) and heat to a medium setting (if it has settings.)

  4. Place 2/3 - 1 cup of the mixture in the centre of the waffle machine and spread a little to the sides. Close and cook for approx. 5 mins, until browned, crispy and cooked through in the centre. Remove from waffle machine and place on a wire rack. 

  5. Repeat until all the mixture has been used up.

Recipe Notes

  1. I used a food processor to grate the vegetables which I believe gives the best results. If you use a box grater then the vegetables can become mush and clump together. This will depend on how sharp your box grater is and the force you use. If very wet, I recommend squeezing some of the juice out (using a cheese cloth / clean dish cloth) before mixing with the flour and egg.  
  2. You can easily change the vegetables you use in this recipe. I have, in the past, tried a mixture of grated onion, capsicum (bell pepper), zucchini (courgette).   If adding other vegetables I recommend squeezing the juice out before mixing with the flour and egg.
