Not sure why I was in the mood for these today, wish I had pickled beets or radishes like my guy in NYC, but these came out pretty damn good!

I used a waffle iron to reduce the fat from frying. I tried the first one with Pam, it was ok, next one I brushed the waffle iron with vegetable oil, MUCH better.

2 cans of chick peas, rinsed and I let them dry in the colendar.
2/3 cup of Vegetable oil
4 tablespoons of flour
1 large onion
2 tsp baking powder
handful of chopped fresh parsley
handful of chopped fresh cilantro
2 tsp Kosher salt
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp cayenne pepper (more or less depending on your spice level)
4 egg whites
4 large garlic cloves (I added more, LK likes garlic!)

Threw all that in the Vitamix and got it into a nice puree, you can use a food processor, I don't have one.

I put about 3 - 4 wooden spoons into the hot waffle Iron, let it cook about 9 - 10 min

I had pita bread, tzatziki, garlic hummus. Shredded some lettuce, nice fresh tomato, cucumber and red onion (now you see why I wish I had pickled beets!)
Shoved all that into a 1/2 pita with 2 waffle triangles and threw it down.

Makes about 5 full waffles.

Will report on the extent of my chick pea gas pretty soon....

Minimal animal protein from the egg whites, plus what you are predicting was an assload of Carbs … you should create your own Recipe Forum here on the Den.

Some of my ethnic stereotypes were shattered once when I sat at the bar in a Mexican restaurant and saw how they get that salt ring on the rim of the glass. Had a big box of Kosher Salt, poured some onto a plate and twirled a wet upside down glass in the salt before filling it with that green goodness.

All clear so far, between the garlic and the chic peas, I'm surprised.

Plenty of protein the beans, not just the egg @rawdeal
