Rosemary Cornmeal Waffles

Man, I've been wanting a waffle iron for a long time. This morning I finally got one. When BandMan said he wanted waffles for his Father's Day breakfast, my mind immediately started cycling through which restaurant would have vegan waffles and not be packed this morning - but then it occurred to me that for the same price as going out, I could just buy a waffle iron and make some bomb ass waffles myself; so I did (and that's what I like to call a win-win situation).

Remember a while ago when I told you that I received a care package from a reader? That care package came equipped with some white cornmeal - which is my favorite kind of cornmeal but it's super hard to find here in Boise - and this is the first dish I made with it.

I made these waffles with my personal preferences which are probably way different than your personal preferences; so if you want to sub out the milk, go for it. Any dairy free milk will taste good. If you don't have white cornmeal, screw it; use reggae cornmeal instead. But don't let the rosemary scare you, it's perf in this dish.

Optional toppings include maple syrup, a drizzle of agave, powdered sugar, pumpkin butter (in the pic below), apple butter, etc. Just go with your heart - everything will taste good on these little babies.




2 c cashew milk 
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 c white cornmeal 
1 c rice flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c raw sugar
2 tbsp minced rosemary
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c canola oil
  1. Mix together the cashew milk and the apple cider vinegar and set it to the side for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Combine your dry ingredients and then add in your wet ingredients.
  3. Pour a cup of the batter in your waffle iron and cook to your desired done-ness.
  4. Dress it up (or don't) and chow down.

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Fried Peach Pasta Salad w/fresh mangoes & blueberries

But for 24,240 hours, you've patiently waited for me while I explored other things like getting married, expanding my reach on Instagram, getting a promotion, going on many tours with my band and recording two amazing (if I do say so myself) albums. And now I'm back for a little while because I missed you and I hope you missed me too.Speaking of missing stuff: ya know how in the Summer heat you can wait for Fall so you can wear your favorite sweater? And in the dead of Winter all you can daydream about how tan you're going to be come Summer? Well, Boise is officially entering the phase of Summer that makes you beg for Fall. With temps over 100 everyday it can be hard to cook, eat, or just function in general.

This quick and cooling salad is a one stop shop for a meal. It's got everything you need for it to be a successful single main dish, but it def works as side dish too.

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
