How to make the best vegan potato waffles
- Don’t boil or bake the potatoes beforehand! We found that using freshly grated raw potatoes provides the best results. The starch from the potatoes helps to hold them together as they cook and they don’t fall apart. Just adding a bit of gluten-free all-purpose flour will work to achieve perfect potato waffles. This way, the waffles will get super crispy and crunchy on both sides, thanks to the heat coming from both sides of the waffle maker.
- Adding grated onion to them will make them insanely more flavourful than just adding onion powder like other recipes we have seen on the Internet.
- Adding nutritional yeast to the recipe is a must! This ingredient will make your waffles taste cheesy and amazing. Nutritional yeast is also normally fortified with vitamin B12, making it extremely healthy to consume.
- Make sure to use whole black peppercorns and freshly grind them yourself. We are not fans of purchasing store-bought ground black pepper. It makes a huge difference flavour-wise!
How to grate the potatoes
- Grate most of the potatoes on the medium holes of a box grater. Grate a small portion of the potatoes on the small holes of the box grater. Out of 1 kg of peeled potatoes, grate 800 grams on the medium holes of the box grater and 200 grams on the small holes.

- 1 kg potatoes, weighed after peeled
- 1 small onion
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
- 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
- 1/4 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour, the gluten-free flour blend we used already contained xanthan gum, check ingredients and if it doesn't contain any thickening agent, you'll need to add
- Authentic GF & Vegan Köttbullar (Swedish Meatballs)
- The Best Ever Vegan Swedish Brown Gravy – Ikea Style
- A few spoonfuls lingonberry jam, very important!
- fresh parsley
- Preheat your waffle iron, spray or brush it with some canola oil, and set aside.
- In a large bowl, grate 80% of the potatoes on the medium holes of a box grater.
- Grate the 20% left of the potatoes on the small holes of the box grater.
- Grate the onion on the small holes of the box grater as well.
- Stir in the sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, nutritional yeast, and gluten-free all-purpose flour. Whisk together using a sturdy spatula.
- Preheat the oven to 95°C/200°F.
- Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, scoop out some batter and spread it into the greased waffle maker. Close and let cook until the steam has completely stopped from the waffle maker. Don't open it before the steam has disappeared! The waffles take 13 to 15 minutes to be fully cooked, golden and crispy.
- Once there is no steam coming from the waffle maker and they look golden and crispy, remove the waffles and place them on a baking tray. Place the tray in the preheated oven to keep the waffles warm and crispy until you're finished with the entire batter.
- Continue with the rest of the batter. Remember to grease the waffle iron for every batch to prevent them from sticking and breaking apart.
- Serve with our Authentic Swedish Meatballs (Vegan & Gluten-Free Style), our Swedish Vegan Brown Gravy (Ikea Style), and lingonberry jam, for a modern fun twist on the Authentic Swedish Meatballs dish. YOU'LL LOVE THIS CREATION AND WON'T BE ABLE TO STOP YOURSELF! this combo is highly addictive!!! Enjoy!
- If there are leftovers, freeze them so they continue to taste fresh, crispy, and delicious! When you're ready to eat them, simply take them from the freezer and directly heat them in your toaster. They will taste as freshly made!
- Heat any leftovers in your toaster for a few minutes. They will be as crispy and delicious as freshly made.
