If it’s edible, there’s a 99 percent chance I’ve smooshed it into my waffle maker just to see what would happen. In the case of falafel, the result is a crispy-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside savory waffle - no deep frying required! This hummus recipe is great with pita and veggies as well, just reduce the amount of tahini to a few tablespoons.

Cook Time



For the Falafel Mix:

  • 3 cups cooked chickpeas, drained, about 2 15.5-ounce cans
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

For the Hummus “Syrup:”

  • 1 15.5 oz can chickpeas, drained
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • A pinch of salt

For the Toppings:

  • 1 medium cucumber, diced
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. To make the falafel batter, use a food processor to blend chickpeas, parsley, onions and garlic until there are no large chunks (small chunks are fine, they give the falafel texture). You might need to do this in two or three batches. Transfer this mixture to a large bowl and stir in coriander, cumin, salt, pepper, flour, and baking soda. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
  2. While that sets up, make the hummus. Combine all ingredients in a food processor until you have a creamy texture. It should be looser than a typical hummus, so you can pipe it on top of the cooked waffle.
  3. Following the manufacturer’s directions, preheat your waffle maker and spray it with cooking spray. If you can choose a temperature, go with medium. Spoon about 1/3 cup of falafel mixture into each cavity and close the cover. Cook for 12-15 minutes, until the outside is crispy and lightly browned.
  4. Toss the cucumber and tomato in lemon juice and olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Top the falafel waffle with hummus and a generous pile of tomato and cucumber. Serve warm.
