Finally, after a long 4 week break from the blog, I’m back! I must admit, I’ve had one of the worst cases of ‘post holiday blues’ yet… It’s been so hard to get back into the daily routine after a fun filled 2 week vacation in sunny Florida.

It didn’t help coming back to the freezing cold and wet English weather (it looks like Spring has been cancelled here by the way…) when all I could think about was sunshine and palm trees…

With so many thrilling experiences, as well as utterly relaxing and doing-nothing-for-the-whole-day beach days, Florida took my breath away. I’ll write a separate travel post about our Floridian adventures as I’d love to share some gems of the places we discovered along the way.

As expected, there are so many recipes I want to share on the blog by now, so I’ll get straight down to business, aka these quick and easy vegan chickpea waffles. I love how versatile this recipe is – you can choose to serve the waffles with sweet or savoury toppings, which makes it a perfect breakfast or lunchtime recipe.

I particularly like using these chickpea waffles in sandwiches instead of bread, especially when they’re generously covered with delicious hummus (like this cauliflower hummus or butternut squash hummus for example) in between all the other sandwich goodness!

 

These waffles freeze really well too – just thaw them out (I normally do it overnight) & put in the toaster for that crispy crunchy finish.

Another great thing about this recipe – you can put your own twist on it by adding your favourite spices into the batter. Smoked paprika, mild curry powder or Italian mixed herbs – the combinations are endless.

  1. Ohhh, this is genius! We haven’t experimented too much with our waffle maker, so I can’t wait to try this. I LOVE savory breakfasts. We also happen to have a ton of chickpea flour right now, so it’s too perfect!
