Simple Plantain Waffles

Here is a recipe for some no-fuss, budget-friendly, gluten- and grain-free waffles that you can make in your blender. They are crisp, golden and savory with a flavor reminiscent of potato hash browns. The best thing about them (if you have experimented much with grain-free baking) - they don't fall apart!

You can find green plantains at most large supermarkets, Aldi, or international food stores. The skin is thick and fibrous and best removed by scoring and prying off with a sharp knife.

Simple Plantain Waffles

1/2 cup water or non-dairy milk
2 large, green, plantains, peeled and chunked
2 large eggs
1/4 cup butter
1/4 tsp. sea salt

Preheat waffle iron. Place all ingredients in blender and process till smooth. Pour onto waffle griddle and cook according to your waffle-iron directions until waffles are golden. (Isn't 'waffles' a delightful word?) Serve hot with butter or gravy.

Optional batter add-ins:

Chopped walnuts
Caraway or cumin seeds
Minced dry onion
Garlic powder
Sesame seeds
