½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
1 egg
1½ cups buttermilk

To Serve:

2 ears of corn, grilled until slightly charred in places
4 fried eggs with runny yolks
Sea salt flakes and freshly ground back pepper
Chopped coriander leaves
Lime juice fot the avocados and some wedges to serve

Make the Waffles:
Preheat your waffle iron.

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, ground flaxseed, chia seeds, poppy seeds
baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and buttermilk together.

Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix until just combined.

Scoop ¼ cup portions into the waffle iron.  Cook until golden brown and crisp.  Continue until all the batter is used.  You should get 4 generous waffles.

Take the flesh out of the avocados, mash them in a bowl with a squeeze of lime juice and some salt. Divide smashed avo and pile onto the waffles.

Cut the kernels of the cobs of corn and divide them among the plates.
