Think sweet brunch treat when you think waffles? Think again! I’ve flipped the traditional waffle into a deliciously disguised vegetable fritter.

Enjoy for breakfast, lunch, or my favourite – a quick 15-minute dinner when you’re low on time but still want a nourishing, fulfilling meal. Savoury waffles can be enjoyed with endless toppings. I love to enjoy mine with avocado, cherry tomatoes, toasted seeds, pickled vegetables, homemade pesto, and herb yoghurt sauce. Yum!
