“Sinfully Wholesome Waffles” and the Easiest Strawberry Sauce

Last night around 1 AM I announced to all my friends that I was dying to have waffles.  My waffle craving could be related to the amount of alcohol in my system, or the excitement of the exploding fireworks, or even my non-stop dancing to this Taylor Swift song (don’t judge me).  Whatever the reason, all I could think about was waffles!  Of course, there’s no vegan-friendly waffle joints open at 1 AM on New Years in my neck of the woods, so I didn’t get any waffles.  Until this morning when I made them myself!

It’s no secret that Isa Chandra Moskowitz of Post Punk Kitchen fame is my favorite vegan chef of all time.  I own almost every cookbook she has written and I’ve never tried a recipe of hers that I didn’t like.  Her latest work, Isa Does It, is my top vegan cookbook.  I did not create the recipe for these waffles.  These Sinfully Wholesome Waffles are in Isa Does It, but I also found the recipe online in the PPK forums HERE.

You have to make these waffles.  They’re simple, and like the recipe title says, Sinfully Wholesome!  I knew I could top these breakfast beauties with plain maple syrup and be in heaven, but there was a pound of fresh strawberries in my kitchen begging to get in on the waffle action!  This is the easiest strawberry sauce you will ever make.  I promise.  But easy doesn’t mean flavorless!  The minimal ingredients really allow the strawberries to shine as a perfect topping for a wafflelicious New Year’s breakfast.

What’s this kale picture doing in the middle of all this strawberry talk?!  Before waffles, before strawberry sauce, I scarfed down a plate of sauteed kale with lemon juice.  Because hey, it’s New Years!  That’s when we’re supposed to eat veggies, right?  Kale for breakfast.  Try it.

“Sinfully Wholesome Waffles” and the Easiest Strawberry Sauce

Ingredients

    For the Waffles:
  • Assemble ingredients as listed for the Sinfully Wholeseome Waffles recipe.
  • For the Strawberry Sauce
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Instructions

    For the Waffles:
  1. Prepare waffle batter as directed for the Sinfully Wholeseome Waffles recipe. Please note that I omitted the called for oil to make this dish WFPB (leaving it out won't affect the recipe), and I used all-purpose flour instead of whole wheat, because I was out of whole wheat. I also used 1/4 cup additional rolled oats in place of the wheat germ.
  2. For the Sauce:
  3. Pick over strawberries and reserve 5-6 of the best to eat fresh. Chop remaining strawberries into small pieces and put in a small saute pan.
  4. Add lemon juice and maple syrup, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. After boiling, continue to cook until strawberries release their juices and become soft, about five minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and allow to rest for an additional five minutes.
  6. Top waffles with strawberry sauce and garnish plate with fresh strawberries. Enjoy!
