Spinach and Comte waffles

Waffles made with pumpkin seed flour, garnished with spinach and Comté sprouts

If I like the waffles in a sweet version (as in my Liège waffles recipe ), I prefer them in a savory version! It is a good alternative to savory cakes which can be perfect for a dinner accompanied with raw vegetables, for a picnic or an aperitif.

The big plus of the waffles is that it is very easy and quick to prepare, and you can customize them endlessly! For my daily recipe, I chose to combine spinach and Comté sprouts, but you can use other vegetables (zucchini, carrot, squash, etc.) and cheeses, or even make a 100% vegetable version!

If you are using vegetables soaked in water, such as spinach or zucchini, remember to blanch them well or fry them in the pan before incorporating them into your dough, otherwise they may make too much water when cooked.
