I just recently started experimenting with buckwheat flour.
My first buckwheat dish was buckweat pancakes.
This time I decided to make waffles.
The waffles were served with fresh figs and lemon thyme cashew cream cheese.
I’ve had good figs and bad figs in the past, but these organic figs from Trader Joe’s have been consistently good.
It’s hard to find figs in Minnesota, so I buy them during this very short period of time when some stores carry figs here.
I absolutely loved my buckwheat waffles.
They are handsomely dark, crispy, and delicious.
Buckwheat Waffles (makes about 4-5)
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
1/4 cup canola oil
1 1/4 cup soy milk
juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tablespoon flax meal
*The batter is on the thinner side.
*It sticks to the waffle maker. Grease the waffle maker before cooking.
