Tahini Kale Chiffonade and Stuffed Waffles - light and crispy waffles stuffed with a bright, lemony kale and savory tahini - perfect for brunch or even lunch!
This combines several of my current obsessions - kale chiffonade, tahini, and stuffed waffles. We chiffonade kale several times a week, I still eat tahini nearly every day, and this is my third waffle stuffing.
That sounded like a confession.
Just like my cheesy tomato stuffed waffles, these are a savory item perhaps better for lunch... although I wouldn't kick it out of my breakfast table.
That is where the similarities end. Those cheesy tomato waffles are a scrumptious saucy crunchy comfort food that you might want right before a nap.
These are light and savory, fresh and crisp.
Topped with sliced avocado and more tahini, with a sliced Roma it was perfect for me.
Stuffed Waffles Recipe*
dairy, egg, soy and gluten free, vegan
makes 4-6 (Belgian style) stuffed waffles
2 cups gluten free all purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
pinch sea salt
¾ cup club soda
⅓ cup coconut milk (carton)
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon agave
tahini kale chiffonade salad (recipe follows)
Sift together flour, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt. Add soda, milk, oil and agave, stirring until just combined.
Pour a small amount (¼ to ⅓ cup, depending on size of iron) into prepared waffle iron, add tahini kale salad to the middle (leaving an inch or so border), cover with another ¼ cup batter.
Close and cook per machine instructions. I cooked mine about 3-4 minutes on one side, flipping and cooking another minute (using a waffle iron that flips).
*an even easier way to make stuffed waffles? use vegan puff pastry!
