Cornmeal Waffles

WP_20150717_002

Each time my waffles are getting better. Each time I make my waffles, I get to make a better batter. The first few times, my waffles where tasteless and gummies. Now, they are sweet, crisp and moist. After many trials, finally, I found my own and original waffle mixture. The recipes is similar to the pancakes one but this has more liquid, vanilla, 1/2tsp of baking powder instead of 1/4tsp and no salt added. The cook time is also longer in order for them to get perfectly cook in the inside and crunchy in the outside.

For a contrast to the sweet waffle, I make a tofú for my protein source. I topped the dish with granada arils and almond milk. If you want a more sweet flavor, I suggest to drizzle honey. even though, the arils will damp your waffle with their juice.

I cooked the tofú in the pan with a drizzle of almond oil. My almond or peanut oil are from the almond and peanut butter jars that naturally occurs. I store them in a recipient and use them for many recipes and different occasions.

Procedure:

Take out the tofú and drain it with paper towels and set aside.

Turn on your waffle iron into maximum heat. In a bowl, mix with water all of the ingredients for the waffle. Pour all of your batter into the waffler machine and let it cook about 5 minutes for one side or until the light turns green. Then, flip it and cook during the same time.

In the meantime, turn on your stove top on medium heat and drizzle the almond oil. Cut your already drain tofú in four halves or as desire and put them in the about 4minutes for one side. Then, flip them and let cook until brown.

Put the waffle into your serving dish and put the tofús on top. Finally, spread the granada arils and almond butter. WP_20150717_005 WP_20150717_006  WP_20150717_010
