savory chickpea waffles

After a really long day – being working for more than 14 hours – I was in need of a very filling dish high in protein.  The bad thing with being Vegan and living in Greece is that it’s quite hard to get legumes in a can in order to have a  quick  and easy meal. Well the truth is that it isn’t that difficult but choices are limited… kidney beans, giant beans and if you are lucky black beans  :D I really love making things with chickpeas so I thought to give it a try and use my new waffle iron and make these savory chickpea waffles. I topped the waffles with tahini-lemon-cilantro sauce. These savory waffles are high in protein as they are made with chickpea flour instead of the usual all purpose flour. They make a great breakfast and they are very filling. Well… as I said… this was my dinner… and probably tomorrow’s breakfast :)

Ingredients

2 cups chickpea flour
2 cups soy milk
1 T.S. apple cider vinegar
1 t.s. baking powder
1/2 t.s. salt
2 t.s. sugar
1 T.S. tahini
3 T.S. olive oil

Heat your waffle iron. Put the soy milk and apple cider vinegar in a bowl and let it sit for few minutes. Add all the rest ingredients and mix well with a fork. Put half cup batter in your waffle iron and cook for 6 minutes. Repeat with the rest of the batter. To make the  sauce mix the juice of half lemon,  1 T.S tahini, 1 T.S. chopped cilantro and 2 T.S. of water.

  1. I have to say I ate 1 or 2 of these last night after being at the Sports Bar. Settled my stomach nicely and got a good sleep.

    The sauce was really good

  2. A good recipe, I’m sure. I normally mix my chickpea flour with other flours or starches but you make me want to try it alone.
