Potato Quinoa Waffles ( Aloo Tikki Waffles)

These easy Indian Spiced Vegan Potato Quinoa Waffles are inspired by my favorite Indian potato snack, Aloo Tikki! The quinoa adds nutrition and texture making them a savory brunch treat that is wonderfully filling! Vegan Gluten-free Nutfree Soyfree

I love me a good waffles recipe! No better self-care activity than digging into a pile of hot crispy waffles topped with all kinds of nuts and drizzles. But recently, I've been on a savory kick, and YES luckily the waffle maker is an excellent tool for not only making delicious sweet dessert waffles but it can be used for delicious savory snacks too. Like these incredible Potato Quinoa Waffles.

They are crispy on the outside and taste a bit like potato pancakes but we also add some cooked quinoa to these, so they are more filling and nutritious! And would you just look at that crisp, golden crust that only a piping hot waffle maker creates? Gorgeous!

I also call them Aloo Tikki Waffles – Aloo Tikki are Indian Potato Patties served as a snack and while there is no quinoa added to Indian potato patties, we do sneak in all those gorgeous Indian spices like cumin, green chiles, ginger and coriander.

Now, most quinoa waffles are made using quinoa flour. These are made using quinoa which we cook along with the potatoes!  Of course, if you happen to have leftover cooked quinoa and potatoes, you can use those!

Green Chili Enchilada Soup

This one-pot Vegan Green Chile Enchilada Soup is vegan Mexican comfort food at its best! A hearty stew loaded with soy curls, corn and rice, then topped with all your favorite toppings for tons of flavor!

This green chile enchilada soup recipe has everything you love about green enchiladas – the smoky heat of the green chiles, the Mexican spices, the creaminess and obviously the cheese.

As this is a chicken-less enchilada soup, we add some soy curls in lieu of chicken as our protein. Otherwise, we rely on staple Mexican ingredients, such as rice, corn! I love the comforting creaminess the rice adds to this stew. Nutritional yeast adds the cheesy taste, but we also add some shredded cheese on top to finish this off.

The secret to the creaminess of this vegan enchilada soup is a quick cashew cream which adds a nice richness to the soup and thickens it along with the rice. However, for those of you who are allergic, I listed a nut-free version in the tips section.

I like finishing this Vegan Mexican soup off with some shredded cheese and some thinly sliced green chiles. Other great additions would be a fresh squeeze of lime, some sliced avocado, more vegan cheese shreds, and how about crushed tortilla chips? It will be hard to just have one bowl of this delicious vegan soup.

The flavors in the sauce are spot on, with the perfect balance of sweet and salty but not so much that you feel like you need to drink a gallon of water afterward. This Chinese-inspired dinner was so delicious served on a bed of rice.

Let's talk about the General Tso sauce for a second! Other than just a mix of ketchup, soy sauce and vinegar, which many restaurants use, we start this sauce from scratch – adding fresh bell peppers, garlic and ginger to really get a deep round taste. You will want to bottle this sauce and put it on everything.  Trust me!
