We admittedly aren’t that keen on sweets, so perhaps that’s why we enjoy these Vegan Black Sesame Waffles just so much. The addition of toasted black sesame paste provides a nuttiness that gives these waffles an added complexity. When paired with our Vegan Black Sesame Miso Caramel and a peanut sugar garnish, these waffles have a subtle Asian characteristic. Peanuts are a popular garnish in Taiwan and provide texture and an added nuttiness while the slightly salty-umami miso caramel gives the dish its balance. These grey-hued waffles are a delicious and decadent snack or breakfast served with whatever garnish you enjoy most. What we really, truly love about these waffles is the depth the black sesame adds to set them apart from any ordinary waffle.
This recipe is perfectly crafted for plain sweetened Almond Dream or plain sweetened Coconut Dream vegan yogurt. One small (170g/6oz) container is the exact amount you’ll need for this recipe. Along with helping to make the waffles somewhat fluffy, the sweetness from the yogurt also means there’s no need for any added sugars in the batter before adding the sesame paste.
