Spinach Waffles with Salmon

Green waffles made from spinach. You heard me right. These savory spinach waffles are a great low carb lunch option, paired with smoked salmon, cream cheese and avocado.

Plus green waffles just look kinda cool, right? Or weird? Or interesting?  🤷‍♀️

If you're looking for a low carb option, this is a great pick for lunch. One whole waffle fills you up really well. You could even serve it up as small bites: a snack on game day or appetizer at a fancier party. 

Get creative with the toppings! The taste of the waffle itself is pretty neutral, so I’m sure if you have a good combination idea, others would love to hear it - comment below!

Spinach Waffles with Salmon, Cream Cheese and Avocado

(Makes 2 big waffles - enough for 2 people or works as a snack for more)

  • 150g frozen spinach (weighed while frozen)

  • 1 dl water

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2 dl steel cut oats

  • 3 eggs

  • Cream cheese

  • 1 small package of smoked salmon

  • 1 avocado

  • Pepper

  • Lemon wedges

Defrost the spinach. This is quickly done by putting it in a bowl and adding half cold water, half boiling water. 

Add the spinach, water, olive oil, salt, oats and eggs to a bowl or blender. Make sure to squeeze the spinach to get rid of excess water. I'm using a hand mixer, which works perfectly for this recipe. Blend until smooth.

In the meantime, heat up your waffle iron. Pour in half the batter and cook until done. It shouldn't really be brown, just done. Put the waffle to a side and repeat with the remaining batter.

Once both waffles are done, smear on cream cheese. Layer on smoked salmon and avocado slices. Season with freshly ground pepper and serve with lemon wedges on the side. A sprig of dill could also be delicious to add.
