Savoury Waffles with Sweet Potato, Sausage, and Walnuts

A delicious breakfast that can be enjoyed for any meal!

Makes 3-4 waffles



Sweet potato and sausage fry-up:

  • 3 tablespoons refined coconut oil, or more as needed
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into small bite size pieces
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 4 GUSTA Vegan Sausages (Española flavour), sliced into medium bite size pieces


  • ¾ cup toasted walnuts, roughly crushed
  • Maldon salt, as desired
  • Maple syrup, as desired


  1. To make the waffles: Whisk together the chia mixture and almond milk. Add the flour and salt and mix until smooth, with no clumps! Let sit for 4 minutes to thicken up.
  2. Heat a griddle, pan, or waffle maker. Coat the cooking surface with 1 teaspoon of vegan butter or refined coconut oil for each waffle. Cook each waffle for about 3-5 minutes, until they just start to brown. I recommend a waffle maker for this, because they do all the work for you.
  3. To make the fry-up: Heat the oil on medium heat in a large (preferably non-stick) frying pan. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add the sweet potato and saute for 8-10 minutes, until the pieces start to brown and soften. Add the sausage and paprika and continue cooking for 3-4 minutes until the sausage begins to brown. Add more refined coconut oil at any time if the mix is looking dry!
  4. Assembly: Top your waffles with the sweet potato and sausage. Add maple syrup, salt and crushed walnuts. Enjoy!
  5. Adaptation: Use hummus instead of maple syrup for a more savoury situation.
