Banting Broccoli Waffles

These Banting Broccoli Waffles are a delicious way to use broccoli if you are tired of the regular broccoli and cheese sauce – you may even be able to use it as a disguise for non-broccoli eaters…

They make great snacks and keep well for lunch the next day, if there are any left…

What you need:

  • 1 large head of broccoli
  • 1 cup of cheese (I use mature cheddar, but any flavorsome strong cheese will work)
  • 2 extra large eggs
  • Salt/pepper/garlic/seasoning to taste

Haha, it looks like a broccoli man…

How to do it:

  • Wash the broccoli well and break into trees – now use your blender to finely dice the broccoli, it should resemble crumbs, as pictured above
  • Add the spices, cheese and eggs to the broccoli and mix together well
  • Heat the waffle iron and spray with non stick spray or olive oil
  • Place a spoonful of the mixture on the hot waffle iron and close – this will spread the mixture out, more or less – I don’t mind the slightly rustic look when it doesn’t spread evenly 🙂
  • Wait till the waffle is well browned then lift from the waffle iron carefully and allow to cool on a rack
  • This mixture makes between 7-8 waffles depending on the size of the waffle iron

Now your waffles ready to eat, served here with cream cheese – totally delicious and very filling!

Other serving suggestions

  • Cream cheese, rocket and smoked salmon
  • Mince and tomato
  • Tinned tuna and banting mayo
  • spread with butter, hot off the waffle iron and don’t tell anyone you ate the first one just like that 🙂

The list is endless, I say, go forth and play with your food!
