Using a waffle iron means we get a ton of that crispy browned crust we all love so much from falafel, and without the deep fry! This gluten-free recipe takes all yummy ingredients of falafel and puts them into a crispy waffle. Fawaffle!

2 c cauliflower rice
1 egg
3 cloves garlic
1/2 c parsley, chopped
1/4 c cilantro, chopped
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 c chickpea flour
1/2 c olive oil
The juice of half a lemon

1. Prepare your chickpea base by combining the chickpea flour and oil in a bowl.
2. In a food processor, add all other falafel ingredients and pulse until well combined. Transfer to your chickpea flour mixture and fold.
3. Heat your waffle iron to medium high and pour a tbs of olive oil into the bottom well.
4. Spoon a small portion onto the iron and cook for 5-10 minutes. Serve with Seed + Mill tahini, cucumbers, microgreens, and sprinkle some Za’atar!

The halva here is subtle, but adds a welcomed nutty flavor and tender texture on top of the flaky crust, and beneath the jammy fruit, lending it a not-not peanut butter and jelly quality. It's also lending its talents as a sweetener (meaning less granulated sugar on your fruit), and also providing something for those juices to sink into as the fruit bakes, which leaves you with a never-soggy bottom
