Our waffle maker was on fire until we came to Germany, we used it a lot! We are okay without it, but it's so useful we miss it so much. ? I didn't know you can make sooo many things with a waffle maker, I'm so impressed! It's so clean and easy to use, and we also saved time because we made some recipes that we used to make using the oven and the waffle maker cooks the food much faster, like for example our falafel waffles, you need to give them a try!
These waffles are so delicious, satisfying and perfect to eat on the go, you can eat them at room temperature or reheat them. We love to add some healthy ketchup on top and eat them with a bowl of salad, it's a wonderful meal!
If you want to save some time in the kitchen, you can make big batches of these amazing waffles and freeze them. Then you just need to let them at room temperature and reheat them in the waffle maker, it's so convenient!
You can see how was the batter in the picture below. I hope you try and enjoy this recipe! ?
- Feel free to use any type of potatoes or any plant milk you want. You can also use water, although the waffles will have a less intense flavor.
- We used steamed potatoes, but boiled potatoes will work as well.
- If you can't find nutritional yeast, use some brewer's yeast instead or add less milk and use some beer to get that cheesy flavor, it's not the same, but it works pretty well.
- Buckwheat and brown rice flours are our favorite ones, but any other flour is okay, although you'll probably need to add more or less.
- Spring onions or any other veggies can be used instead of the spring garlics.
PRODUCT WE USED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE (AFFILIATE LINK):
We used a Belgian style waffle maker, but this Cuisinart round classic waffle maker also works amazing!
Vegan Gluten Free Potato Waffles
- 1 pound peeled potatoes
- ½ cup soy milk
- 4 tablespoon nutritional yeast
- 2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- Black pepper to taste
- 1 cup buckwheat flour
- 2 small spring garlics, chopped (optional)
- Peel and chop the potatoes and steam them for 15 to 20 minutes or until they're soft.
- Place them in a large mixing bowl and wait until they're cold enough you can touch them.
- Add the rest of the ingredients except the flour and the spring garlics and stir with a spoon.
- Add the flour and mix well. Add the chopped spring garlics and mix again. Use your hands if necessary.
- Preheat the waffle maker. Once the waffle maker is ready, you can generously coat with non-stick spray or some oil (extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil are my favorite ones). We didn't do this, but it's up to you.
- Add the batter into the waffle maker and cook according to manufacturer's instructions. My waffles were ready in 7 minutes.
- Serve with your favorite sauce on top. We added some ketchup.

Is it necessary to add the nutritional yeast? Will the consistency of the batter change if I add rice flour?
Hi Ash! No, you can omit it and add more flour instead 🙂
Hi, can I use whole wheat flour instead of Buckwheat flour? Thank you, from Italy!!
I love your recipes!
Hi Titti! We LOVE your country, it's so beautiful and the food is AMAZING. Yes, you can use any type of flour you want, but maybe you'll need to add more or less 🙂 Have a nice day!
Great recipe. I doubled everything but the buckwheat flour, and had to add a bit more soy milk. Delicious. All gone. 🙂 Thanks.
Hi Shell! Thanks a lot 😀 Have a nice day!
I like the oat milk too! I make thumb cookies with the pulp and don't waste anything! Waffles are my new discovery and I love them.
Hi! There are so many recipes you can make with the pulp, cookies are so good 🙂 Have a nice day!
Made it, love it! The Healthy Ketchup is fantastic. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you
Thanks a lot Joe! I'm so glad to hear that 🙂
I made these tonight and the flavor was really good. Husband enjoyed thoroughly. I made the full recipe and yielded 8 "waffles." My question is regarding the consistency of the "batter." It was thick! Like scooping peanut butter onto the waffle iron. They did cook in approximately seven minutes, but I then put them in a warm oven while I prepared the rest. So is the yield of 8 assuming that each person gets one? Or did I mess up by having my batter be so thick. I used oat milk. I will definitely be making them again, as the flavor is really good!! Thanks!!!
Hi Suzy! The batter is quite thick, but not as thick as peanut butter as you can see in picture number 3. When I make this recipe, I usually eat two waffles, but it's up to you, eat until you're satisfied 🙂 Have a beautiful day and thanks for your comment!
