Scallion Waffles

Scallion Waffles

A little bit sweet and a whole lot of savory, who doesn't love veggie-filled waffles for dinner?! Thank you to our members Daniel Burnette and his wife, Karen Fullenwider, for this delicious recipe.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE WAFFLES:
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • ¾ teaspoon fine sea salt plus more as needed
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup ice water
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup finely chopped kimchi
  • 4 cups finely grated emphasis on finely grated mixed vegetables (carrots, zucchini, bell peppers, kale, whatever you’ve got)
  • 4 scallions cut into 2-inch-long sections and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil plus more as needed
  • FOR THE DIPPING SAUCE:
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar plus more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger or garlic optional
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil plus more to taste
  • pinch of granulated sugar

Instructions

  • Prepare the pancakes: In a large bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, cornstarch, salt and baking powder.
  • In a medium bowl, combine water, egg and kimchi. Whisk kimchi mixture into flour mixture, and whisk until smooth. Fold in vegetables and about three-quarters of the scallions. (Save the rest for garnish.)
  • In a large nonstick waffle iron over medium heat, heat 1 teaspoon oil. Scoop portions of batter into the waffle iron and cook on medium heat.Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and sprinkle with a little more salt. Continue with remaining batter.
  • Before serving, make the dipping sauce: In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, vinegar, ginger or garlic (if using), sesame oil and sugar. Sprinkle sliced scallion over pancakes, and serve with dipping sauce on the side.
