SkinnyMint Collab: CHICKPEA & ZUCCHINI WAFFLES
As much as I love sweet, crispy waffles, every once in a while I crave for savoury waffles that just hit the spot.
These ones are like that. Full of protein and topped with vitamins, these waffles are fresh, crispy, savoury - everything one could wish for. I enjoyed mine topped with avocado, a bit of vegan mayo (you can't be toooo healthy, right?) and side of SkinnyMint tea, one that I have been particularly fond over for the past month and it actually makes me kind of sad to see the packet almost empty. If you are on the search for a good (detox) tea then SkinnyMint is very very good, tasty and healthy option!
total time: 30 minutes
75g chickpea flour
250 ml unsweetened plant-based milk or water
100 ml light coconut milk
150g unbleached organic all-purpose flour or spelt flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
160g grated zucchini
1 ripe avocado, finely sliced
1-2 tbsp of vegan mayo or cashew cream cheese
handful of fresh cilantro
freshly ground black pepper
Heat your waffle iron and oil well.
Whisk together the chickpea flour, plant-based milk/water and coconut milk until there are no lumps. In another bowl combine the flour, salt and baking powder, then fold in the chickpea mixture. Mix until combined and then add the grated zucchini. The batter should be thick but pourable - add more milk if necessary.
Ladle the batter into the waffle iron and cook until crispy and golden. Serve with avocado, freshly ground black pepper, coriander a dollop of vegan mayo and a large cup of SkinnyMint tea. Enjoy!
