Falafel Waffles

fwYesterday, I picked up some garbanzo bean flour. I had given the last of mine to a friend at work who was making savory waffles. I has thinking about making Farinata again.

But this morning as I was waking up, I thought I would make falafel. Then I wondered how my friend’s waffles turned out. Then I thought how funny falafel waffle sounded. Then I decided that Falafel Waffles was not only fun to say, but were probably a pretty tasty treat. Falafel Waffles were a must. If you give a mom a full night of sleep…

Falafel Waffles (5 small)
1 cup garbanzo bean flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1 tsp parsley
Dash of cayenne
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 cup minced onion
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup hot water

  1. Combine the dry ingredients.
  2. Add the onion and garlic.
  3. Add the lemon juice and water and combine to form batter.
  4. Heat your waffle iron and drop about a quarter cup of batter in each side. Cook for 3-4 minutes until starting to brown.

I served my Falafel Waffles with some chopped tomatoes and cucumber. They were delicious! Because I used garbanzo bean flour, these waffles do not have the grainy texture of falafel but they had all the great flavors of falafel but were ready in a fraction of the time. And since there is no frying involved, clean up was a breeze. I could see making little tiny waffles and serving them on a skewer with a cherry tomato and a chunk of cucumber with some Tzatziki sauce on the side.

My Faithful Assistant is a big fan of all things waffled so I expect he and I will be enjoying these for dinner this fall. Stay tuned for more waffling adventures!
