Turmeric Falafel & Vegan Matcha Waffles w/Crema de Jalapeño


Who needs Chicken & Waffles when you can have TURMERIC FALAFEL & MATCHA WAFFLES W/CREMA DE JALAPEÑO? I’m so excited about this vegan meal! The falafel was amazing with the plant based waffles. And, the crema was the perfect compliment to this savory take on a classic. A quick dusting of za’atar & EB seasoning, and some greens & fruit on the side are all you need! Enjoy!

Vegan Waffles

I was challenged to develop a vegan recipe for a project I was working on. I just love how these waffles turned out. I did not miss using egg in these waffles. They came out fluffy and yummy. And, this recipe is so versatile – with just a few tweaks they can go from sweet to savory. Definitely going to do more of this type of cooking! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Vegan Waffles

Yield: 6 Servings

Vegan Waffles

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 TBS turbinado sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Dash sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 TBS ground flax seed, whisked with 1/4 cup filtered water
  • 1 TBS vegetable oil
  • 2 cups plant based milk (I used homemade almond milk)
  • Cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Heat waffle maker.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
  3. Add vanilla, flax seed mixture, vegetable oil and milk to the dry ingredients. Whisk together, thoroughly.
  4. Apply a small amount of cooking spray to the top and bottom of the waffle maker. Pour 1/3 cup of mix onto center of waffle maker to make medium size waffles.
  5. Top waffles with desired toppings. I topped mine with sweetened crème fraîche & powdered sugar, and served it with fruit on the side. Syrup would also be awesome!

Notes

– You can easily adjust this recipe to suit your needs. For instance, if you do not want to use nut milk, you can substitute oat milk, etc. – You can also make these waffles savory, by omitting the vanilla & reducing the sugar. – Matcha Waffles: I like to make this recipe by adding 1 tsp matcha powder. I love the green color!
