These vegan waffles are fluffy on the inside but crisp on the outside! They are the perfect, light vessel for sweet and savoury waffle dishes. Add your favourite fruit, vegan whipped cream, powdered sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup, or switch it up to a savoury vegan chicken and waffles by adding a bit of cinnamon and cayenne to your syrup to drizzle over some crisp vegan fried seitan or tofu.
