Quinoa Waffles and the Secret Recipe Club
I guess it’s not a secret now 😉
Let’s call it the SRC.
The way the SRC works is you sign up and then once a month fantastic Amanda sends out an e-mail assigning a blog for you to choose a recipe from. You can chose any recipe from the assigned SRC blog and you make it and blog about it linking back to the original blog it came from so everyone can share the love and hopefully a few new readers.
I was assigned Rachel’s blog “Not Rachel Ray”
“Not Rachel Ray” has a ton of fantastic recipes and great dinner ideas but since I’m not a huge fan of photographing my dinner (it’s usually delicious but not as pretty as the baking, not to mention I usually have a hungry family that wouldn’t have enough patience for me to set up a decent photo.) I opted for the Quinoa Pancake recipe.
I chose the Quinoa pancakes because A.) I love Quinoa and am always looking for different ways to eat it! and B.) I knew with a few slight changes I could transform it into a waffle!
Quinoa waffles are good.
Quinoa Waffles recipe adapted from Not Rachel Ray
1 cup cooked Quinoa
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tsp baking powder
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp melted butter or oil (I used grape seed oil)
1/3 cup milk
2 tbsp maple syrup or brown sugar
2 tbsp ground flax seed
1/4 tsp cinnamon
In a medium bowl, whisk together the cooked quinoa, flour, oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and ground flax-seed.
In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil, milk and syrup until smooth. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and whisk to combine.
Heat and oil your waffle maker.
I like mine topped with yogurt and strawberries.
This recipe makes 6 pretty hefty waffles, my husband was pretty full after finishing two.
