How nice are these pink waffles? They are savory red beet waffles and they make a perfect lunch. You might know waffles as a sweet breakfast dish, like the chocolate waffles that I made before. But why only keep your waffle iron for sweet breakfast dishes, when you can also make savory waffles for lunch with it? These pink waffles look very pretty, I love how the pink matches with the greens. On this page I’m sharing the recipe for these pink waffles.
To make these waffles pink all you have to do is add some pink coloring to your regular waffle recipe. I always prefer natural coloring if possible. For these pink waffles I used a tablespoon of red beet juice. But you can also use a natural coloring powder.
I topped these savory pink waffles with rocket, green asparagus and avocado. But you can top them with toppings of your own choice of course. I love adding vegetables to my lunch as it’s a great way to eat more healthy and to increase your daily veggie intake. Most people eat way to little vegetables unfortunately. I hope this recipe inspires everyone to eat more veggies! Below you’ll find the recipe for 4 waffles (2 servings). I made these waffles with chickpea-flour but you can also use regular or whole-wheat flour.
Recipe Pink Waffles
Ingredients (for 4 waffles):
90 grams (chickpea) flour

Pre-heat the waffle iron. Mix the flour, baking powder, water, olive oil and red beet juice in a bowl. Use a sauce spoon to scoop the dough on the waffle iron. Bake until done.
