Rice Waffles with Fruit Sauce

(8 servings)

  • safflower oil or cooking spray - to coat waffle iron
  • 3/4 cup sifted rice flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 2 large eggs - separated
  • 1 cup nonfat milk
  • 1/4 cup safflower oil
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 cup strawberries - sliced
  • 2 teaspoons date sugar or maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot powder
  • 1 cup nonfat yogurt
Preheat waffle iron and lightly brush with safflower oil.

In a medium bowl combine rice flour, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt.

In a separate bowl combine honey, egg yolks, milk, the 1/4 cup safflower oil and cooked rice.

Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.

Combine dry and wet ingredients, then fold in egg whites.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Cook waffles, one at a time, keeping them warm in the oven on a heatproof platter.

In a small saucepan, combine strawberries, date sugar, and arrowroot. Cook over medium-high heat until thick. Let cool slightly, then mix with yogurt.

Pour strawberry sauce over warm waffles and serve.

These waffles use both rice flour and cooked rice. The fruit sauce uses strawberries, but that could be replaced with other favorite berries if desired.
