No eggs, no oil, no sugar... how could it be any good?
This weekend I made vegan waffles out of a cookbook from the library, The Joy of Vegan Baking. The recipe called for no eggs (flaxseed provided the stickiness), no oil and no sugar. Could this really be good? I wondered. Better make a 1/2 recipe. So I did.
But the waffles were stunningly good... our whole family thought so! Probably the best waffles I've ever had. They didn't last, and the kids refused to eat the generic version of Eggo waffles this morning.
I checked out the cookbook on a whim. We're not vegans, but I recently discovered I'm allergic to milk and eggs, which wreak havoc with my immune system if I eat 'em. How do you get around that? With a vegan cookbook.
Now I'm thinking I'll make a triple recipe next time, freeze a bunch, save money and make the kids happy. And after I try a few more recipes.. .I think I'll go ahead and buy the cookbook on Amazon...
