Kickass Vegan Sourdough Waffles
And a primer on making your own sourdough starter
You won't miss the eggs or dairy. I'm not vegan by any stretch of the imagination, but this is still my go-to waffle recipe.
What you will need
1/2 cup grapeseed oil (or sub any oil with a neutral flavor)
1/2 cup sourdough starter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
How to cook
If you live in an area where there's enough yeast in the air, you can make your own starter easily. Just mix flour and water. Every day, add a little more flour and water. When it starts to double in volume after a feeding, it's ready to go.
A little trick. I get tired of feeding my starter sometimes. So I spread some starter out on parchment and let it dry for a few days. Then I crumble it up and store it in a zip lock bag. Add a chunk to a brand new starter and it will activate faster.
So, once you have your starter going, if you're feeding it correctly, you'll quickly have more than you know what to do with. That's where this recipe comes in handy.
Combine all of the ingredients. Mix well. Put the mixture in the fridge overnight. The next day, use it to make waffles like you normally would. Easy... and particularly delicious with maple syrup.
