I was craving waffles for dinner earlier this week and still wanted to get my vegetables in and have something on the more savory side, so I decided to try to make some zucchini waffles. I wanted to make it a bit more substantial with a chickpea scramble and added some pesto and other toppings for some extra fancy flavorings. In less than 20 minutes everything came together and can I just say this trial was a SUCCESS !?! Easy, delicious, and completely vegan this recipe is definitely one I’ll be coming back to.

Here’s what you’ll need to do:

For the chickpea scramble, simply combine 1 cup of chickpeas with mushrooms and spinach. Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes with some olive oil or soy sauce. Add paprika, tumeric, and salt for seasoning. If you want to make your own pesto, try this vegan recipe. Enjoy!
