Crispy Vegan Cardamon and Rose Waffles


The taste of a summer celebration with a hint of floral and fresh strawberries.

Are you a pancake or waffle type of person? Because waffles are basically pancakes with abs. Another reason I believe waffles trump pancakes is because they’re the perfect combination of crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. Debate closed. So let’s get waffling!

Gluten-free and vegan waffles that are crispy? This used to a myth in the TGR kitchen until now, my friends. And with summer being in full swing what would be more suitable than a hint of rose and cardamom to complement the strawberries.

Tips for Keeping Waffles Warm:

If you’re not going to enjoy your waffle straight out of the griddle, it is to place them on a cooling rack in an even layer. Turn your oven to the “warm” setting or about 100℃. and place the fresh waffles in an even layer in the oven until ready to enjoy. Unlike pancakes, where you can toss them all on top of each other to keep them warm, waffles have a crispy outer coating that is highly desirable. If you stack them while they’re hot, they are going to create steam and quickly lose that crispiness.

Alternative flavours :

Let your imagination run wild and go with what is in season as these waffles are meant to be enjoyed all year-round.

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon & 2 chopped stewed apples
  • or ½ cup chopped strawberries/raspberries/blueberries in the batter
  • or 2 tablespoons peanut butter & 1 chopped banana.

Can You Freeze Waffles? YES! These waffles are great for storing in the freezer and popping straight into the toaster oven. Place the cooled waffles in a container or stasher bag and store it in the freezer for up to 3 months. Toast in the toaster to defrost and toast the waffle or use the oven on the grill setting.
