savoury superfood waffle bites method

  1. Mix chia seeds with water and let them soak until they form a gel-like consistency.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the cooked rice, zucchini, soaked chia seeds, rice flour, savoury yeast flakes, barley grass powder, and freshly chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Mix until well combined, and the mixture is slightly sticky. If the mixture is too dry, add a little oil or water until it comes together.
  4. Heat the waffle maker on high heat and brush it with olive oil. Place 2 tablespoons of the rice mixture onto the hotplate and cook until the waffle is crispy.
  5. Serve with your favourite sauces and toppings (avocado, pickled veggies, crispy bacon, poached eggs...) or pop them into your lunchbox for days when you’re on the move. Enjoy!
