So, the other day I said those Summer Market Waffles could go either way. Sweet or savory. To use up our mega-stores of squash, we ate the waffles each morning this week. It was a grand week, I must say. And guess what I found out? You don't have to choose just one direction for breakfast to go on the flavor spectrum.
See what I mean?
I'm not the type to go nuts and give a gazillion variations on the same recipe. But I'd say this change up (however slight) on the waffle recipe was a huge winner. So much so, I felt compelled to give it to you TODAY so you'd have it in time for weekend brunch. (I hope you all have at least a little time for a weekend brunch.)
This version two point zero is heartier, more flavorful. Just . . . different. So, give it -- and the original, yellow squash + basil filled Summer Market Waffles -- a try!
ZUCCHINI + CARROT WAFFLES
still vegan, still great topped with syrup or eggs
What you'll need . . .
- 1/2 cup shredded zucchini
- 1/2 cup shredded carrot
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/3 cup buckwheat flour
- 1 cup water
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- pinch salt
- splash vanilla extract
I was all set to have my sweet breakfast drippy with maple syrup goodness . . . when Stephen motioned over to the stove. He had made surprise tofu scramble! I noticed immediately it wasn't the usual recipe we use (that curried masterpiece is here), but instead a sort of hack -- a shortcut -- with only a few simple ingredients.
TOFU SCRAMBLE HACK
What you'll need . . .
- 1 block tofu, crumbled
- good pinch salt + pepper
- 1 to 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
// Stephen actually crumbled the tofu the night before (I had no idea!) and mixed in the seasonings to let sit overnight. Then this morning he put a fry pan over medium-high heat with a bit of olive oil and cooked until browned on all sides. I imagine you could just put everything together in the moment, though.
Now that we have his + her breakfasts . . .
Here's what he + she will be reading at the beach in the next couple weeks. What are you guys reading? Any suggestions? I'm thinking Under the Dome will keep Stephen occupied for a while, but I'll likely breeze through Cinderella Ate My Daughter.
