This recipe was created by Karen Wiens on 12/13/14.

I love falafel, I’ll admit it. But these days, I’m not too into the whole deep-fried thing. So I came up with the falafel waffle. Try saying that ten times fast! You get all that great falafel smell, taste and soft crunch without the grease, heaviness and empty calories. It’s kind of a “different” meal and the novelty of it pleased us all. This recipe will make a couple of big waffles.
