The Hummus Waffle

February 28, 2012

in recipe, vegan

Did you know that yesterday was National Strawberry Day?


I celebrated. Julius just watched.


Hey, if you can’t fold the laundry, you don’t get the sweet stuff!!!


Because of the blog, I’m now aware that pretty much every day can be celebrated culinarily. With the astronomical nature of everything in cyberspace, I’m always shocked when there’s something food-related that I can’t find online.

I wanted to make a savory waffle for dinner, and wondered if hummus could be put in the batter. It seemed so logical to me, and yet I only found ONE post (ironically, by my blog buddy Sarena). There were a few about waffle falafel (using chickpea flour), a couple where you use hummus as “the syrup”, and only a couple for pancakes. I wound up following this one, and veganized it for y’all.

Used this Cayenne flavor from Majestic Garlic, which gave it a little kick.


Mixed and waited for Abe to come home from work (about an hour)


Cooked in Amy’s fancy iron on Medium Low…


…smeared with Creamy Garlic


You can use a fork, but they’re a lot more fun to devour with your fingers…


…light, fluffy, and definitely falafel-esque. If you have a waffle iron and some hummus, I highly recommend you whip up a batch!

Hummus Waffles (adapted from Tri to Cook; serves 2)

  • 1/2 cup white flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup + 2 TB Non-Sweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 TB ground flax seed
  • 1tsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup hummus

Mix all the dry ingredients together in one bowl. Add the remaining ingredients, and stir to combine. The batter will be thick. Pour into a sprayed, preheated waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer’s instructions.


Wasn’t feeling incredibly hungry, so I ate a small plum for dessert -


Still craved chocolate. Whenever I see a new candy bar, I grab one and add it to my freezer stash.


The 3 Musketeers Coconut is still nougat-y and fluff-y. You won’t find any actual flakes inside.


So…I’m curious how many people found this post because you were searching for a hummus waffle recipe? Hopefully after this, many more people will make them, and there will be an internet revolution.


Actually just woke up to discover today is Pancake Day (at IHOP). I still think you should make hummus waffles!!!

Wow, a savory waffle is something I would never really think of. Looks great though!

Haha, you know I have to comment on the hummus waffle! They are soooooo good! I use savory waffles for sandwiches all the time. They are perfect especially with eggs! I know what I’m doing for dinner now!

Mmmm Waffles! I’ve never had a savory waffle, but I have had Chicken N’ Waffles so maybe that counts! I’ve got to try this! Great idea!

A hummus waffle sounds great! Savoury waffles are all the rage these days.

11 Katie @KatieDid March 4, 2012 at 6:15 pm

What a brilliant idea! I pretty much exclusively eat savory breakfasts so this sounds so appealing.

This idea is great! I love hummus. Wondering if this also works in American pancakes by adding some bakingsoda, backingpowder and recplace the almond milk for buttermilk insted.
