I cannot tell a lie I am a fan of rainbow colored almost anything! Meal ideas can be difficult for us busy people during the week. You can’t always cook new different things. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of color to add a some of pizazz to old recipes. I am also not above including edible glitter or some dust to these bad boys. I found this idea on tablespoon.com and I had to share it because rainbow waffles are something the world should have been doing long ago! I bet waffle maker sales will sky rocket now!
2 cups organic pancake mix
1 cup organic skim or low-fat milk (non-dairy substitutes are fine too)
organic food coloring (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)
whipped cream (for “clouds if you want them)
Lucky Charms (for the “treasure but not a necessity)
1. In a large bowl, whisk together Bisquick, eggs and milk until smooth.
2. Divide the batter into six portions, around 1/3 cup each, giving a little extra to the bowls for the red and orange colors.
3. Use gel food coloring (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) to color each bowl of batter to your desired vibrancy. Whisk in food coloring until evenly blended.
4.Transfer each color of batter to its own piping bag and cut off the tips (careful not to spill the batter). You can use a spoon for each color if you dont have piping bags, just be very careful.
5. Carefully pour each color into a heated circle waffle maker to make your “rainbow”, starting with red, then orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. Cook according to waffle maker instructions.
6. Remove, and repeat with remaining batter. Cut each waffle in half.
7. Serve with whipped cream for “clouds” and Lucky Charms as the “treasure” at the end of the rainbow you can also serve it a bowl of fruit or any desired cereal.
