Tips:

  • You can use any other fresh herb in place of spinach and coriander or use only one type of herb. If you can't get fresh herbs, use dried herbs.
  • We usually make relatively small falafel waffles, and we typically get about 5 or 6 with these ingredients. Still, if you make them bigger, you will get 3 or 4, and you may have to leave them a little longer in the waffle maker until they are fully cooked.
  • Garlic powder is a good substitute for fresh garlic, especially if you don't digest it very well.
  • Chickpea flour serves to thicken the dough. Use another type of flour if you want. In the photo below, you can see the consistency it has to have.
  • The cooking time can vary in each waffle iron and your dough (if it has been more or less dry).
  • If your waffles stick to the waffle iron, add a little oil with the help of kitchen paper.
  • If you get many batters, cook all the waffles and freeze them, they are just as rich when defrosted.

  • 1 cup of spinach (30 g)

Ingredients SCALE (2x)

  • 1 1/3 cup raw chickpeas (240 g), soaked in water from the night before
  • Two cloves of garlic
  • Two red onion
  • Two handfuls of coriander
  • 2 cups of spinach (60 g)
  • Four teaspoons ground cumin
  • One teaspoon of sea salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups of chickpea flour (180 g)
  • Yoghurt sauce (optional)

Ingredients SCALE (3x)

  • 2 cups raw chickpeas (360 g), soaked in water from the night before
  • Three cloves of garlic
  • Three red onion
  • Three handfuls of coriander
  • 3 cup of spinach (90 g)
  • Six teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 3 cup chickpea flour (270 g)
  • Yoghurt sauce (optional)

Instructions

  1. Strain and wash the chickpeas. Please put them in a food processor or mixer and beat them for a few seconds.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients (except the flour) and beat again until all the ingredients are disintegrated, but without it becoming a puree.
  3. Add the flour and beat again for a few seconds to mix with the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Put the dough in a bowl, cover it with a kitchen towel and let it rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour. This step is optional, although the dough will have more flavour and better consistency.
  5. Preheat your waffle iron, and when it is ready, make a couple of balls with your hands and place them in the waffle iron. Close the lid and cook over medium heat (we put it in the 3 out of 5 positions in our waffle iron) for about 5 to 7 minutes or until they are golden brown, and you can easily lift the lid of the waffle iron. It is difficult for you because they are not ready, and they will break if you open them.
  6. Serve with yoghurt sauce.
