Any regular reader of this blog knows that I have a love affair going with cauliflower. When I saw a recipe for cauliflower waffles (of my goodness, how can you ever turn down a waffle?!), I had to try it. It looked amazing We were leaving the next day for a trip to Europe, but that didn’t discourage me. I was that curious (and can you say probably misguided), I needed to make them the evening before I left.
I have made waffles in the past, delicious sourdough waffles. And I enjoy the savoy type of waffle rather than the sweet ones. This recipe was full of cheese and herbs, a perfect base for summer vegetables.
I’m not a novice for substituting cauliflower in recipes to reduce the carbohydrates. Cauliflower pizza or flatbread, stir fried riced cauliflower, and mashed cauliflower (as a substitute for potatoes) are favorites at our house. I had no reason to think this would be any different.
Well, not so good.
Ok, I would say needs further practice and work.
If any of you are successful in making these, please let me know what I did wrong. The original post looks wonderful. It didn’t say how long they cooked the waffle, or if you needed to grease the waffle maker (my own is non-stick and doesn’t usually need extra oil).
The waffle spirit was not with me.
The compost pile was very happy.
