What food should fuel a day of watching the U.S. presidential festivities while also getting some work done around the house? Yummy comfort food, that minimizes food waste and of course, is gluten-free and plant-based.

Carrot Waffles

Mix up: 1 cup of gluten-free flour baking mix, 1 heaping table spoon of baking soda, 1/3 cup of apple sauce (instead of an egg), 1 cup of almond milk (instead of the dairy kind), 1/2 cup of carrot pulp left over from yesterday’s juicing and a small dash of raw brown sugar for some love. Served with vegan butter and small amount of pure maple syrup. If you don’t have carrot pulp to throw in, a thinly shaved carrot stick or some baby carrots for a few seconds in the food processor would do the trick too.

This could be a pancake or waffle mix. This amount made two big fluffy waffles in the iron.

God bless America.
