Gluten-free waffles made with potatoes and topped with a delicious salsa made with tomatoes, avocado and lime juice. Can it get any better? I think not, especially when it comes to these incredibly delicious and hearty vegan waffles. I was blown away when I first tested the recipe. The combination with the homemade salsa and cream cheese is simply unbeatable, especially if you’re into savory dishes for breakfast. I like both very much savory but it may also be sweet. Next time there’s a brunch coming up, I’ll definitely be offering this fine waffle variation and I’m already looking forward to it.
Potato waffles (gluten free)
For the dough, first boil the potatoes and then cool. I like to cook them a day ahead and let them cool overnight. They are then peeled and mashed. This would obviously go better when the potatoes are still warm, however something magical happens when you let them cool. Resistant starch is formed, which is something wonderful for intestinal health. It is indigestible, however, it serves as food for the good intestinal bacteria and they form short-chain fatty acids, which in turn serve as food for important bacterial species. All this ensures all-round healthy intestinal flora and good health.
To the mashed potatoes add a little water, olive oil, garlic granules, onion powder, salt and pepper. This is all worked into a compact dough with your hands and baked into waffles. I use a waffle iron for this, which I brush with a little oil beforehand. The waffles take a little longer than sweet waffles and are ready when they are dry on the outside and nicely browned.
TIP: Depending on how dry the mashed potatoes are, you may need more or less water. Dose carefully, not that the dough becomes too wet. Otherwise, add in a little more oatmeal to bind.
Make hearty vegan waffles quickly and easily yourself
Once the waffles are baked, I place them on top of each other on a plate to keep them nice and warm. Served with the fine homemade salsa, cream cheese (or vegetable ricotta) and fresh basil.
