Broccoli And Parmesan Cheese Waffles

Broccoli And Parmesan Cheese Waffles

Perfect for brunch or a light lunch - broccoli and Parmesan cheese waffles served with avocado, yogurt with horseradish and smoked salmon.

You can also use the same batter to make pancakes instead of waffles. Turn on the oven on a low heat and place an oven tray in the oven. Depending on the size of the frying pan you use, make 2-3 small pancakes in one go and once done, add them to the tray in the oven. Continue until you have used up all the batter.

You can swap the Parmesan cheese for feta cheese if you want to, or use a mix of the two.

If you want to make the waffles/pancakes gluten-free, use buckwheat flour instead of whole grain/wholewheat flour. I am using spelt flour.

I am adding rocket/arugula leaves to the batter mix to give the waffles more of kick taste-wise - I find they become too sweet-tasting otherwise. You could also use watercress. 

And don't be shy with the black pepper you add either. Apart from adding an extra kick, black pepper contains a compound called piperine which helps your body absorb more of the nutrients in the food you eat.

For the batter:

This will make 8 waffles:

1/2 small broccoli - roughly 150g, 5 1/2oz

3 eggs

100g, 3 1/2oz whole grain/whole meal (I use spelt) or buckwheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda/ bicarbonate of soda 

100g, 3 1/2oz grated parmesan cheese - or use the same amount of feta cheese

a handful rocket/arugula leaves

1/2 teaspoon sea salt 

Some black pepper

To serve:

1 avocado - halved, peeled and sliced

4 heaped tablespoons natural Greek-style yogurt mixed with 2 heaped teaspoons horseradish sauce

Smoked salmon

Lemon wedges

  1. Add all the ingredients for the batter to a food processor and blend until you have a smooth batter. Leave to rest for 10 minutes. Turn on your oven on low (for keeping you first batch of waffles/pancakes warm)
  2. Lightly brush or spray the hotplates of the waffle iron with some oil, close and turn it on. Add batter to the waffle iron to make the first 4 waffles. Once they are ready place them on a tray in the oven while you make the next 4.
  3. Serve with the avocado, yogurt with horseradish, smoked salmon and lemon wedges.
