Made these for Father's Day brunch. Everybody loved them and they were relatively easy to make. My waffle maker makes two at a time so I quadrupled the recipe for 4 people. It was far too much batter, but that is a minor concern. Also, while scaling up the recipe I only used 12 tablespoons of oil instead of 16. I whipped together a quick lemon chilli aioli to serve on top with some fresh spinach leaves. Great recipe and was definitely a crowd pleaser!
Believe it or not I made it and it turned out great! Kids liked it too, although they were very skeptical about it while I was making it.
The waffles can be great for breakfast and have very nice green color.
