I recently got married! Very exciting to be sure. Now my husband and I are staying with his parents until we can move into our new place. This isn’t so bad, but finding food we can all eat is always a struggle as I am vegan, and they are not. One meal I can make for everyone pretty easily is breakfast. In fact, whenever we see each other they ask me to make pancakes or waffles. Here is my recipe for banana walnut waffles that is a favorite of my father-in-law.

Banana Walnut Waffles

3/4 cup soy milk
1 tsp vinegar
1 very ripe banana, mashed
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
dash of salt
1 TBL oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts.

1. Pour the vinegar in the bottom of a one cup measuring put. Add soy milk to the vinegar and set aside to curdle.
2. Mash the banana in a bowl, then add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, oil, vanilla and soy milk. Mix until mostly smooth, some small lumps are ok. Sometimes I find I need to add more soy milk at this time. The batter should be thin enough to pour, but not so thin it runs out of the waffle maker.
3. Stir in the walnuts.
4. Cook waffles according to the directions on your waffle maker.

Makes 4-5 waffles depending on your maker and how thick the batter is.
