  • 15 ounces cauliflower florets
  • 15 ounces zucchini
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese grated (or 113g)
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour (or 24g)
  • 1.5 teaspoons salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¾ cup cheddar cheese grated (for grilling) (optional)


  • Preheat your non-stick waffle iron. I used a mini Dash waffle maker.
  • Shred the veggies in a food processor like you would to make cauliflower rice.
  • Place the shredded veggies in a heatproof bowl and microwave on high for 6 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes then place into a muslin cloth or clean fine tea towel and squeeze out the excess water.
  • Place the compressed veggies back in your mixing bowl and add 1 cup of grated cheese, melted butter, egg, coconut flour, salt and pepper. Mix with clean hands to combine.
  • Add enough mix to fill the waffle iron. For the mini Dash, it’s about ⅓ cup and flatten.
  • Close the waffle iron lid and cook for about 2.5 minutes, lift the lid and wait for 30 seconds before lifting out with a knife. This help with easy removal. Check occasionally towards the end to ensure they don’t burn. Each waffle iron will cook differently so test one as you may need to adjust your cooking times slightly.
  • Repeat for all the remaining mix. Once the waffles are cooked, option to place on a non-stick baking tray, top with grated cheddar and place under the broiler until melted, about 2 minutes. Option to also top with fresh herbs or dried Italian herbs.
  • Storage: Best fresh
