16oz (460gm) frozen corn kernels, thawed
2 medium zucchini (courgettes), peeled and chopped
6oz (170gm) flax meal (ground linseed)
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 teaspoon cumin powder
1⁄2 cup coriander (cilantro), chopped
6 small button mushrooms, cleaned
1⁄2 aubergine (eggplant), sliced thinly, soaked in salt water for 60 mins
4 dessert spoon olive oil
2 dessert spoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon lime juice
Garlic nut mayo to garnish (recipe page 109)
Sprig of coriander (cilantro) to garnish
Salt and pepper to taste
For the waffles:
Place all the ingredients including the 1⁄2 cup of coriander (cilantro) into a
blender and mix thoroughly into paste like consistency. Add extra flax meal if consistency
is too soft. Frozen corn, thawed gives a better result than fresh but if fresh are available,
then by all means use these. These can be either cooked using a waffle iron or placed into
silicon waffle moulds and dehydrated for 5 hours at 55°C (130°F). This mix will make 6-8 waffles. Turn out when ready.
Meanwhile place the mushrooms and pre-soaked aubergine into a prep bowl. Add the
olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lime juice and salt and pepper. Thoroughly marinade for up
to 4 hours in the fridge.
To serve, place two waffles onto a flat plate, add several slices of aubergine (eggplant)
and top with mushrooms. Drizzle mayonnaise over the top and garnish with coriander
