The waffle iron has been a great purchase. We keep trying new recipes and most of them are savory, like these falafel waffles, one of our favorite foods.
At first we made the falafel fried in extra virgin olive oil, then we discovered the baked falafel and now the falafel waffle is our choice for the day by day because it does not use oil, it is done faster and the waffle maker uses less electricity than the oven. In any case, you can also make this recipe by frying or baking the falafel balls, in case you don’t have a waffle maker.

- Put the dough in a bowl, cover it with a kitchen towel and let it rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour. This step is optional, although the dough will have more flavor and a better consistency.
- Preheat your waffle maker and when it is ready, make a couple of balls with your hands and place them in the waffle iron Close the lid and cook over medium heat (we put it on setting 3 of 5 on our waffle maker) for about 5-7 minutes or until golden brown and you can easily lift the lid off the waffle maker. If it’s hard for you, it’s because they’re not ready and they’ll break if you open them.
- Serve with yogurt sauce.
