So since I burst your bubble about Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes (even soy) containing dairy (sorry again, it’s in the syrup) – I decided I needed to make it up to you with a recipe!
I am a fan of savoury breakfasts – most mornings I have eggs and toast – mainly because I cannot think of anything else to eat that is savoury. Until the other day.
I was laying in bed on Sunday thinking what I could make that was eggless for breakfast. I had a craving for waffles, but wasn’t digging the whole “maple syrup” thing.
Then it came to me – savoury breakfast waffles – oh yes.
I searched the internet, and apparently I’m not the only person that has thought this up. BUT from what I could see – most contain CHEESE! Being dairy free and not particularly enjoying dairy free cheese I had to come up with a plan…
Savoury Vegan Waffles
makes 5-6 waffles
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. chia in 4 tbsp. water (or 2 eggs)
1 1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/8 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 pinch savoury (or spice of choice)
Pre-heat waffle maker.
Mix together dry ingredients
Add in wet ingredients and mix together until just combined.
Add 1/2 cup mixture to waffle maker per waffle..
Let waffles cook until desired texture – I prefer mine crunchy, so I cook them and then pop them in the toaster!
I just did what I knew would work – for me savoury and mushrooms are a perfect marriage – so I sautéed up some mushrooms and kale in water with a pinch of salt.
Other options could include;
earth balance butter
Or you could even make it into a sandwich – with whatever fillings you want? veggies and hummus?
My bottom line – I LOVED them – like really really loved them. I am going to try to supplement something for the oil, as it’s a lot for a recipe.
My plans for the extras are to freeze them individually so I can pop them into the toaster for a quick snack!
Hope you enjoy this recipe!
I start a photography course tomorrow – so expect to see my blog full of photos soon!!
I LOVE savory waffles! You should try them with chickpea flour too! They are amazing!ReplyDelete
Here's what I do http://www.thenondairyqueen.com/2011/03/smile-on-my-face-and-savory-nutritional.html.
I seriously love them! Yours look perfectly delicious!
Mmmmmm! These look so delish. I am usually a fan of the more savory choices nowadays---veggies and hummus with the waffles sound super great!ReplyDelete
I had a favorite restaurant years ago that had waffle sandwiches - I loved them! I like the idea of garlic in a waffle!ReplyDelete
Yummy! A waffle sandwhich! I bet they would be great with all natural p-nut butter and an all fruit spread. PB&JW!ReplyDelete
