Have been trying to come up with an edible fatfree veagan waffle for a
while. This weekend I think I finally succeded. It is based on a recipe
out of the `Cooking Light' cookbook, with help from `Greene on Grain'.
FF Buckwheat-Triticale Waffle
1 cup water
1/3 cups prunes
3/4 cup orange juice
1 cup frozen bannanas
2 tblsp apple juice concentrate
2/3 cup pastry flour
1 cup buckwheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup rolled triticale
Combine water and prunes in blender until prunes are pureed(could be
several minutes). Add orange juice, bannanas and apple juice concentrate.
Blend a minute or two more.
In a shifter, combine flours, baking powder and salt. Shift into large
bowl. Form a crater in center of flour and add liquid from blender. Mix
well. Consistency should be somewhat thick. Add triticale and mix well.
Pour 1 to 1 1/3 cups of mixture onto waffle iron and cook according to iron
Makes 3-4 waffles.
Notes: If mixture is too thick, thin it our with water or juice.
Bannanas probably do not have to be frozen. I routinely keep frozen
bannas around for things like this. The orange and apple juice could
be any combination of concentrate/fresh. Adjust water accordingly. If
it is too much buckwheat flavor, cut down on the buckwheat flour. I
do not know if the recipe will work with more buckwheat flour.
Triticale is an excelent grain. If you cannot get it, substitute
