Happy New Month my Fanmily! It’s February… wow! This year is moving so fast. I was chatting with a friend and we were talking how fast January was moving and she jokingly said this year has been used before…lol that’s why it’s moving so fast I can’t but laugh out loud. Do you agree with her?…lol. I’m wishing Y’all a fantastic and rewarding month!
Today’s recipe is shrimp and vegetable waffle, by now you should know how much my family and I love shrimp…lol. Growing up my mom was into a food catering business, now you know where the love of food started…lol after I moved to the US I worked in a restaurant where I gained more incredibly knowledge from the great chefs and good people around me. So, combining vegetable, shrimp or some food you would not think of started from there too.
On this fateful day, my oldest daughter Ola was asking for the next day breakfast and started checking the pantry and refrigerator and was telling what she saw and would like to eat and others were saying another food then I said okay, let just combine shrimp, vegetables, and make waffles… and Voila shrimp, vegetable waffle came to life and was a hit!
Shrimp and vegetable waffle could be also served as a brunch/dinner just throw in some salad and you would love it. This shrimp and vegetable waffle is what you should try next and hope you enjoy it as much as we all did. It is healthy, simple, and delicious.
Throw in any vegetable of your choice, green beans, peas are great addition too. Make sure you chop the shrimp small and season along with other vegetables. Drizzle the Shrimp and vegetable waffle with syrup or make some eggs and serve as a sandwich…Yum!
