The 'My New Roots' blog recently published a recipe for falafel waffles. While many people own a waffle iron, the appliance is largely reserved for the occasional Sunday breakfast and nothing more. This recipe provides a new way to use a waffle iron during dinnertime.

The recipe puts a savory spin on the traditional waffle by using the ingredients normally reserved for making falafels. The key to the recipe is letting the chickpeas soak in water overnight and then blending them with a tasty combination of garlic, herbs and spices. The batter is then poured onto the waffle iron and cooked until golden brown. The technique gives the dish the same crispy exterior of a falafel, without the hassle of deep-frying. The end result is a savory falafel waffle that perfect for any night of the week.
