Why you’ll love these Savory Cauliflower Waffles

I have obsessed over getting a waffle iron for 3-4 years now. Every time I would see a waffle recipe I would try to recreate it with pancakes. For more recipes, I was able to recreate it with no problem, but I’ve always wanted to make savory waffles! Waffles just seem like that perfect breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner food you know?

Well, I finally got my waffle iron. It’s ceramic and AMAZING! If you need a waffle iron, I highly recommend this one! And what was the first thing I did? Make protein waffles… that stuck to the waffle iron. I was devastated! But Dave suggested I spray the waffle iron (even though it says not to) with coconut oil and it works perfectly so if you get this waffle iron, ignore the directions and use non-stick spray! Once I discovered the waffle iron works perfectly, I set out to make all the waffles I could think of!

I became a pro at making protein waffles but I found myself craving waffles on my low carb days! As soon as Dave smelled these cauliflower waffles cooking, he came into the kitchen asking where his waffles were too! Anytime I can get Dave to ask for cauliflower, it’s a winner!

So these waffles are pretty simple. I do take help from the store and start with frozen riced cauliflower (Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods). You will need to either cook the cauliflower rice in the microwave (6 minutes on high) or on the stove (medium heat with a lid for about 7-10 minutes). Once the rice is fully cooked, you are ready to go. The rest of the prep will take you 2 minutes!

I made these low carb savory cauliflower waffles with an organic Tuscany Blend seasoning. It’s just like Italian seasoning, but a little bit more intense because it has the organic tomato in it. Seriously one of my favorite Italian seasonings! However, you could easily adjust the recipe for your favorite southwestern or Mexican seasonings and serve them with guacamole and a fried egg! I think that is how I will enjoy them tomorrow (I may be a little obsessed)!

great recipe! I can't wait to try it! My one question is, after the cauliflower rice is cooked, do you drain it or do you mix the ingredients in with the water it was cooked in?

Hello !

We don't have this cauliflower rice here in France. I guess I should shred it but how long should I cook it ? Any difference between the frozen and the fresh one ?

Just put cauliflower in a food processor or grate it and you have cauliflower rice
