Pictured here is the Falafel Waffle inside of a pita pocket along with homemade hummus, homemade tzatziki sauce, spinach, tomatoes, and feta crumbs. You can also add a little grilled chicken (marinate chicken in italian dressing for mediterranean flavor).
Tangy yogurt, cucumber dip / sauce…
Tzatziki Sauce Recipe:
2 Cups – Plain Yogurt / Plain Greek Yogurt, Strained
1 Tbsp – Vinegar
2 Cloves – Garlic Minced Finely
1/2 Tsp – Salt
1/4 Tsp – Pepper
1 Cucumber – peeled, seeded, and finely diced
1 Tsp – Fresh Dill
1 Tsp – Fresh Parsley
1 Tsp – Fresh Cilantro
1 Tbsp – Lemon Juice
Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
2 – 15 oz Cans of Chickpeas / Garbanzo Beans
1/2 Cup – Lemon Juice
1/2 Cup – Tahini OR Unsweetened Peanut Butter
1 Lg Garlic Clove Minced
4 Tbsp – Olive Oil
1 Tsp Ground Cumin
1 Tsp Salt
4 Tbsp Water
Dash of Ground Paprika
Using a food processor, start by processing the tahini and lemon juice for one minute. Scrape sides, process for 30 seconds. This ensures creamier hummus. Add olive oil, garlic, cumin, salt and process for 30 seconds. Drain, rinse, and add chickpeas. (Some people prefer to peel skins off for a smoother texture.) Add half of the chickpeas and process for 1 minute. Scrape sides, add remaining chickpeas, and process for 1 – 2 minutes until thick and smooth. At this point, hummus will be thick and grainy.. With food processor on, slowly add water until consistency is smooth and creamy… ready for dipping. At this point, you can sprinkle paprika on top and add olive oil for dipping, but we’re gonna take it one step further and waffle it! You want to save some of your hummus for spreading on the falafel.
2 Cups – Hummus
1/4 Cup – Bread Crumbs
1/4 Cup – Water to thin hummus
Oil for waffle iron – I prefer coconut oil.
Preheat waffle iron on high heat. Mix all ingredients well. Turn heat on waffle iron to Medium. Place about 3/4 cup mixture into waffle iron and cook for about 5 minutes or until brown.
