Quinoa Waffles (Gluten Free)

Who knew you could make delicious waffles out of the superfood Quinoa? Yum!

While browsing my extensive collection of cookbooks I came across a recipe for waffles that called for cooked brown rice and whole wheat flour. Feeling creative, I gave it a try with cooked quinoa and brown rice flour — it turned out amazing! This is probably one of the healthiest waffle recipes on the planet!

Dress your quinoa waffles savory like this: spread with hummus or bean spread and top with stir fry veggies and tempeh.

Since it’s made with quinoa you can dress it in a savory way with bean spread and veggies or you can dress it like a regular waffle with maple syrup and fruit. I’ve tried it both ways and love it all!
