Hummus Waffles

Looks like breakfast-tastes like dinner! My refrigerator always seems to be full of hummus, but I’m not always able to finish it before it reaches its expiration (shoutout to that one time I was gifted with literally 10 lbs of hummus). When this happens, I throw what I can in my freezer. The problem is that freezing hummus can alter the texture and flavor. If that happens, I prefer to cook with my hummus. 

On busy days, it is not uncommon that we opt for breakfast for dinner. One of our favorites is waffles. I decided to make a savory version of this often-sweet treat by cooking the hummus right into our waffles! This recipe also has no added sugar and is full of veggies- a double win!

This has become one of my favorite meals- think falafel meets breakfast. I served my waffles warm and topped with tzatziki and a chopped vegetable salad consisting of cucumber, tomato, and red onion with extra lemon juice and dill. This recipe would also go well with avocado and greens! Comment below with what variations you tried!
