Meatless Monday Redo

Yesterday I drove back to school after my long weekend home.  When I got back, I went right to work on my Meatless Monday recipe that I wanted to try:  Red Pepper and Cheese Pizza.  Well, I had a meeting I had to be at at 6.  I failed to realize that I had to make the dough, let it sit, then cook it, then cook it again with the topping.  So I totally ran out of time.  Which was okay because they dough was so sticky anyway, I needed time to come up with a game plan.  I stuck the dough in the freezer and took it out this morning to thaw for dinner tonight.  I’ll let you know how it works out.

I still did the whole MM thing yesterday.  My dinner was oatmeal (bleh… I didn’t know that I could screw up oatmeal) and pear PB-dillas (which was delish)!  But I’m calling a re-do for yesterday’s MM for today.

So, how did I start off my MMOT (Meatless Monday on Tuesday)?

Pumpkin waffles!!!

These were super delicious!  Definitely replace my first pumpkin waffle recipe!

Pumpkin Waffles

Serves 4

The Necessities

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 c pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 c packed dark brown sugar (I used 1/8 c Brown Sugar Splenda)
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

The Steps

  1. Measure out flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and cloves and mix together in a large bowl, making a center in the middle
  2. Combine milk, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, vegetable oil, and large egg in a small bowl.  Then add to flour mixture, stirring until just moist.
  3. Spoon about 1/4 cup of batter per waffle onto hot waffle iron, spreading the batter to the edges.  Cook 5 to 7 minutes (or until steaming stops).  Repeat with remaining batter.

Next time, I’m going to try this recipe with whole-wheat flour and some ground flax seed to kick up the nutrition some!
