Zucchini Savory Waffles for everybody!
As promised, a savory recipe on the blog today! And not just any recipe: savory waffles with zucchini and polenta please! Hum interesting you might say… Well yes, I confirm! The first time I made these waffles was for our little one. At the time, we had opted for BLD (Baby Led Weaning) and he was therefore eating by himself most of the time. Fort his reason I was always looking for new ideas to make eating easier. Savory waffles have become a classic at home since. Another waffle recipe is in preparation but let’s say it’s a little less healthy ^^.
Anyway, I found this recipe on the Instagram account of Fanny Zanotti, pastry chef and culinary author. On instagram you can find her under the name of fannycacahuètes. Or if you want to have a look on her account dedicated to her daughter’s meals search for what.sienna.eats. I really like her light and soft pictures. She is a French woman living in Sweden, in a small town called Skellefteå. We visited it during our road trip a few years ago and we felt in love with this small city full of charm and of which I had liked a few places to eat (surprising isn’t it?). She also has a very nice food blog. If you’re looking for ideas to feed your little ones (after 6 months!) don’t hesitate to take a look at her Instagram account.
…to the real life!
Going back to the recipe, savory waffles have always worked well at home. It’s easy to make, it freezes well and it’s easy to defrost in the toaster. Served with tomatoes, slices of avocado, eggs, cheese spread and a salad for the grown-ups and dinner is ready. You can of course prepare them for breakfast if you are a savory fan in the morning! Let’s share the recipe now, you’ll see it’s super easy. The must if you can: involve the children, it helps them discover foods (especially greens if you know what I mean…).
- 100 g flour (you could use spelt flour if you want)
- 70 g polenta
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 170 ml milk
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 400 g grated zucchini (1 big or 2 small)
- 60 g grated cheese
- Heat up your waffle maker.
- Mix together the flour, polenta, baking powder, eggs, milk and olive oil using a whisk.
- Add the grated zucchini and cheese, mix well with a wooden spoon.
- Once your waffle maker is ready, pour two large tablespoons of batter into each cavity and cook for about 5 minutes. Check the cooking, the waffles must be golden and cooked inside. Repeat the operation with the rest of the batter.
- You should get about 8 round waffles, I make them not too big (but we eat more than one ;)).
- Serve with the toppings of your choice: tomatoes, avocado, cheese spread, yogurt, egg…
And here is another recipe suitable for children and I thought maybe I would make a category for them. We regularly rack our brains to find ideas here so it would be great to share with you what works!
