The backstory: A certain someone experiences immense happiness while eating waffles. He might have inherited that from his family. Now I love waffles, too.
So when we were at Seattle’s Veg Fest, we were talking about how much his mom loves to cook and bake for us when we visit. But we eat plant-based and gluten-free, which isn’t always easy for another to work around, especially if they’re used to consuming other ingredients.
Well, Namaste Foods heard our story and generously shipped a care package of goodies to us, so some new adventures in the kitchen could commence. And boy, did they commence.
I’m not sure who was more excited about the egg replacer, but I’m still excited about the egg replacer! (Sometimes my flax eggs need help.) And I’m super excited that the applesauce was a hit. They found it easy and exciting to create this beautiful batter.
They even rummaged in the freezer, to pull out blueberries from last year’s garden. These blueberries are organic, plus grown and harvested with a whole lot of love.
Just for the record: I’ve never seen such beautiful blueberries emerge from a freezer.
The end result was perfection. The waffles were so beautiful, in fact, that we’re pretty sure this pure waffle is what people should feast their eyes upon.
These waffles were then topped with the homegrown organic blueberries, some organic maple syrup, and even a little vegan cashew cream. Little devils.
Two more Namaste adventures to go! Macaroni and Cheese has been another family favorite, so it will be so great to see experimentation with plant-based ingredients that can replace butter (avocado?).
Again, we want to send a great big thank you to Namaste Foods for their generosity in trying to help those who are trying to make healthier food choices. It’s such an important thing, providing easy-to-prepare food that can help the public along on their plant-based, gluten-free, and sugar-free journeys. And we are so grateful when we find food that our loved ones can easily work with.
