Course Side


Falafel Waffle

  • 1 cup dried chickpeas
  • 1/2 small onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne


Falafel Waffle

  • Soak the chickpeas 8 hours or overnight in cold water. Drain.
  • Combine the soaked chickpeas, onion, and garlic in a food processor. Pulse until blended but not pureed. Add the parsley, cilantro, flour, salt, cumin, coriander, baking powder, black pepper, and cayenne and pulse until just combined.
  • Heat your waffle machine. Form the chickpea mixture into six patties, gently pressing together so they hold together. Place patties in waffle machine, lower the lid, and cook anywhere from 5-10 minutes, depending on your machine. The falafel is done when it is golden brown and crispy.
