Red Velvet Waffles (The Good Ones)

Ever
 since I bought a new waffle iron about a year ago, waffles have become one of my favorite “Quickies” (Get your mind out of the gutter) 🙂
I prep them usually about once a week, sweet or savory, with whatever I dream up that could go well with or within waffles. The one thing I stayed away from were red velvet waffles. Whenever I looked up a recipe, it contained red food coloring, usually about 2 tablespoons of the stuff for 2 cups of flour. Now I admit that I have used food coloring on occasions to  enhance  a color, but I abhor to use coloring as the only means to create color in food.
Of corse, the simple solution is to add red fruit puree for sweet waffles or red vegetable puree for savory waffles. This will give the waffles both flavor and color and eliminates the need for food coloring.
The results are beautiful waffles with a shiny, golden outside and a bright, pleasant and appetizing pink interior with full, satisfying fruit- and chocolate flavor.
And there you have it…….. “Good” Red Velvet Waffles 🙂
