super-healthy korean veggies and waffles
cook your favorite vegetables in homemade lacto-fermented kim chee (or garlic, ginger, hot pepper paste, and apple cider vinegar if you don’t have kim chee), and serve with waffles!
healthy waffles? sure!
make the waffles yourself with blends of protein-packed flours and lighter, easier to digest flours. i like half lighter flours and starches, like brown rice flour with a little potato starch or oat flour or coconut flour for sweetness, and half heavier flours, like some mixture of buckwheat, nut meal, and teff.
first recipe from maangchi. idea for korean chicken and waffles comes from some restaurant.
