Vegan Mofo #12: Potato & Sausage Waffles with Sauerkraut


Tell us about your favourite cookbook!

Anyone who has been to my house will know that I have a ridiculous amount of vegetarian and vegan cookbooks, and after last years Mofo, I now have a fantastic collection of tacky retro cookbooks too. This topic was a toughie but I ended up coming back to one of the first vegan cookbooks I bought, Another Dinner is Possible.

I love this cookbook! Everything I have ever made from it has been really delicious. There are lots of basic recipes for cooking newbies along with some more complicated ones as well. What I love most about this book is how adaptable the recipes are, I barely ever follow a recipe from this book precisely yet it still comes out great. This is a great cookbook if you’re wanting to make bulk meals too, most of the recipes are for 6+ people, so it’s great for filling your freezer.

I thought to mark the occasion, I’d pick a recipe I’ve never made and waffle-ize it. The recipe for sauerkraut and sausages caught my eye and when I saw the suggestion to serve it with potatoes, I knew exactly what I was going to do.

Potato & Sausage Waffles with Sauerkraut

 

  • 300g sauerkraut
  • 300ml vegetable stock
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 pack of vegan sausages, 1/2 of them chopped
  • 2 cups mash potato (leftovers is good but instant mash works too)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • salt and pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and fire up the waffle iron. Pop the sauerkraut in a baking dish with the stock, the bay leaves and generous amounts of salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes
  2. Mix the mash, the chopped sausages, flour, mustard, nutritional yeast and some salt and pepper in a bowl.
  3. When the waffle iron is ready, spoon 1/3 cup of the mixture at a time, and cook according to the instructions on your waffle iron.
  4. Pop the waffles on a baking sheet once they’re done and pop them in the oven to crisp up further and keep warm.
  5. While the waffles are cooking, fry up the remaining sausages.
  6. Serve by piling sauerkraut and the sausages on your potato waffles…then devour!

Makes 6 waffles

I really enjoyed these, it was pretty quick to get it together and it was different to the usual meals I prepare. I don’t eat sauerkraut  as much as I should, so pickly and delicious! I’m glad I added some mustard and nutritional yeast to the potato to give it a little extra flavour. You could probably add some fresh herbs in there too!

What’s your favourite cookbook and do you have any favourite recipes that you’d like to see as a waffle?!
