Recently we went to a Christmas potluck in Whistler. We made one sweet dish and one savory dish. Our dad bought us a waffle maker for Christmas which is an awesome little item to have in the kitchen, its fun making waffles and experimenting with all the things you can put in them. Usually when I think of waffles I think sweet so we wanted to make something savory instead.
1 cup non dairy milk
1/4 cup water
2 tsp tahini
1.5 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup GF flour or none GF if you prefer
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
3 tbsp sesame seeds
1/4 tsp salt
1.5 tsp baking powder
Let the chia seeds puff up with water then put them and the wet ingredients in the bowl and leave for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes add the remaining ingredients mix until combined well. Turn the waffle iron on and wait for it to get to to the right temperature….HOT. Pour the mix onto the waffle iron and press the lid down leave for 5-7 minute
For the potluck we made both vegan +gluten free version and Vegan version and they both turned out great, I wasn’t sure how the gluten free one would turn out since gluten free things can sometimes taste odd but they were just the same as the vegan version.
For the sun-dried tomato spread
1 cup cashews
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes
1 teaspoon onion powder
Soak cashew in hot water for 30 minutes to soften them. then drain and add to the vitamix with the sun-dried tomatoes and onion powder process until soft and creamy like a spread. Then I spread this on top of the waffles and put pine nuts on top.
This recipe made 2 large waffles which we cut up into smaller pieces and they went down a treat at the potluck. All the ingredient are good sources of proteins again, in 1/4 cup sunflower seeds there is 6.19 grams of protein, its surprising that seeds actually have a decent amount of protein in them and you can add them to most meals.
These waffles are great to make a few of them cut in to 4 and leave in the fridge or freezer to eat on the go or have ready made for breakfast if you are in a rush to have prepped and ready.
