Serves 4.


    Lemony Waffle Stacks with Barbecue Tempeh and Poached Eggs

    Savoury breakfast lovers rejoice! Last night’s vegetables are this morning’s waffles. These brunch stacks are a fun way to welcome the weekend, and much less expensive than dining out.


    If you don’t own a waffle iron, use a large skillet and transform these into latkes (potato pancakes) instead.

    Morning time saver

    Waffles can be made ahead and individually frozen. Reheat from frozen in the toaster.

      Preheat oven to 200 F (90 C). Warm tempeh in oven while preparing waffles.

      In large bowl, roughly mash potatoes and asparagus. Mix in 2 eggs and flour. Brush waffle iron with oil and preheat according to manufacturer’s directions. Scoop approximately 1/2 cup (125 mL) potato waffle batter into each section of waffle iron (amount of batter will depend on size of waffle iron). Close and cook until golden brown and crispy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to large baking sheet and keep warm in oven while making remaining waffles.

      Meanwhile, poach remaining 4 eggs. (See “How to make perfect poached eggs” sidebar.)

      To serve, stack tempeh and poached eggs on waffles.
