Top with a generous drizzle of maple syrup and a pat of vegan butter for the ultimate breakfast.

Preparation

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix well. The batter should look like porridge.
  2. Prepare your waffle iron by setting it to low heat. Once it's ready, grease the waffle iron, pour 1/2 cup of the batter in the center, and spread it around evenly with a heat-proof spatula.
  3. Let the waffles cook according to the manufacturer's instructions but be attentive – these waffles cook very fast and need to be taken out as soon as they are golden brown or they will have a burnt taste.
  4. Serve immediately topped with your favorite fruits, some maple syrup, and a hint of vegan butter.

Notes

Consume these waffles immediately if you like your waffles crunchy. Make sure to keep the waffle iron on the lowest heat temperature or else the waffles will burn quickly. Cook bulgur as per the package instructions. I used red bulgur, but any type of bulgur grain can be used for this recipe.
