I’ve had lots of bad ideas.
I’m talking about recipes here…
As I was mixing these up I thought “this is either my best or worst [waffle] idea ever.” Turns out, it was the best… in a strange way, of course.
I decided on a savory waffle, but you can easily change up the spices to make it sweet. For “brinner,” savory seemed the way to go. It’s a thinner batter, but if you grease the waffle iron liberally it wont stick. I used coconut oil cooking spray.
My veggie toppings were easily prepped while I was making the waffle. I sautéed bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms. It looked like a fiesta!
You could stop with the veggies to keep it vegetarian. I used a little turkey to get more protein, and added a quick sauce made from hummus mixed with hot sauce and a little ACV.
Cauliflower Fiesta Waffles
- 100g cauliflower
- 1 T nutritional yeast
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 6T egg whites
Preheat waffle iron. Place ingredients in a blend or food processor and mix until batter is (mostly) smooth.
Grease iron very well (I used coconut oil). Cook according to your waffle iron’s instructions.
Plate and top as desired. While my waffle cooked, I sautéed bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and turkey to use on top. I also sauced my waffle with a mixture of hummus, hot sauce, and a little apple cider vinegar.

What would you top a savory waffle with?
Did anyone try the sweet eggplant french toast (waffle)?
