Makes: 2 - 4 waffles
Prep Time: 10 minutes (not including soaking time)
Cook time: 30-40 minutes
Total Time: 40-50 minutes
2.6 oz (approx 1/3 c) raw buckwheat groats, soaked
2.6 oz (approx 1/3 c) millet, soaked
2.8 oz (approx 1/3 c) gluten-free jumbo oats
19.4 oz water (approx 2 1/2 c)
½ t or less Himilayan salt
1 t dried garlic or 1 garlic clove
1 T onion flakes
1 t dried oregano
2 T ground flax seeds
1.2 oz oil-free sundried tomatoes, soaked
Black pepper to taste
2 t baking powder
2 medium potatoes, peeled and grated (1 c) (add later)
Soak buckwheat and millet overnight. Wash and drain. Groats will absorb about 3.2 oz of water.
Pour hot water over sundried tomatoes. Let them soak for at least 15 minutes.
Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
Use a non-stick waffle form or spray lightly and pat out all excess. Place waffle forms on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Finely grate potatoes. You’ll have 1 c grated potatoes.
Drain and rinse the tomatoes, cut them into smaller pieces and add with all the other ingredients (EXCEPT potatoes) in blender and blend until homogeneous batter forms. Add liquid gradually.
Finally mix in (don’t blend) grated potatoes. Let sit for 10 minutes.
Divide batter between waffle forms using ladle.
Bake waffles for 25 minutes, until you see they are quite firm and golden.
Remove from oven and let cool a bit.
Then turn the waffles upside down on the baking sheet and let cool almost completely (about 20-30 minutes).
When you touch the forms they should feel similar to your hand temperature. If they are too hot, it’ll be trickier to get them off nicely.
Remove from the form.
Bake waffles for another 10 minutes until they start to turn golden.
Use more or less sundried tomatoes depending on how intense taste you prefer.
You might also try adding 2-3 T of nutritional yeast for extra cheesy flavor.
