Why do waffles always have to be sweet? My savory loving taste buds have been a fan of savory waffles for a long time. Don’t get me wrong.. I love a good waffle with maple syrup and butter or topped with fruit and berries but the possibilities of good savory waffles are endless. I like to mix as many veggies as possible into mine. Zucchini, spinach, broccoli, kale.. so many veggie possibilities. Then add different types of fresh herbs and spices, cheeses and even meats like bacon or pancceta.
I love how a good savory waffle tastes with eggs and smoked salmon, creamy avocado and fresh tomatoes. Or even mix it up and make it sweet and savory with some fresh fruit and berries.
And the best part about it is my kids love them so I can get all those good veggies into their diets in a way they can enjoy.
1 cup gluten free flour blend
1 cup cooked spinach
1 1/2 cup frozen riced cauliflower
½ cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp. olive oil
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
½ tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. black pepper
Olive oil spray
Turn on your waffle iron to medium high heat. In a medium bowl combine gluten free flour blend, garlic powder, salt, black pepper and Parmesan cheese. Mix in the eggs, almond milk and olive oil until smooth and the batter has a slightly thick texture. Fold in the spinach and cauliflower. Spray waffle iron with olive oil spray. Pour waffle mixture into a waffle maker and cook each waffle for about 6-7 minutes or until golden. Repeat the olive oil spray before each waffle. Makes about 4 waffles.
