Spinach Waffles

3.53 oz (100 g) fresh spinach

3 eggs

1.5 teaspoon baking powder

0.85 cups (2 dl) milk

6.53 oz (185 g) flour

1 teaspoon salt


1.06 oz (30 g) fresh spinach

12.35 oz (350 g) chicken breast

1.41 oz (40 g) pickled red onions

2 avocados

0.5 bundle spring onions

Parsley Pesto

1 bundle fresh parsley

1 garlic clove

0.5 teaspoon salt

0.63 cups (1.5 dl) vegetable oil


Waffle iron / Waffle maker



  1. Blend spinach, egg, and milk in a blender or in a bowl using a hand blender.
  2. Now we turn it into a waffle dough. Add baking powder, flour, and salt and blend again. If the dough is too thick, add  a bit more milk. If it is too thin, add a bit more flour. Blend again to combine.
  3. Add the dough into a waffle maker that’s been greased with oil or butter.
  4. In the meantime let’s cook the chicken. Grab your favorite KUMA kitchen knife and trim off any parts you may not want to eat. 
  5. Heat up a pan with some oil or butter. Cook chicken breasts for about 4 minutes per side depending on thickness. Season with salt and pepper and let it rest.
  6. Now we make the parsley pesto / dressing. Blend parsley, oil, salt, and garlic.
  7. When your chicken has had time to rest, grab your KUMA knife again and cut it into slices.
  8. Serve your warm spinach waffles with chicken breast slices, avocado slices, pickled red onion, spring onions, and finally top with homemade pesto.

Make dinner fun with waffles

This dish can be enjoyed for dinner or as a healthy lunch. It’s also one of those meals that’s fun to make and to eat with others as you can turn it into this kind of build-your-own type of thing where your guests assemble their own waffle with toppings.

Dinner waffles are a great idea if you want waffles for dinner. We like to add spinach to add some vegetables and also make them appear more like food and less like a dessert type of thing.

Healthy waffles with toppings

What we love about dinner waffles with spinach is that they are so easy to make and are quite filling. You can also make them in all kinds of different versions depending on your toppings of choice. We sometimes make them with tuna salad which tastes really good. We like blending some spinach directly into the waffle dough as this is an amazing way to sneak in some vegetables that doesn’t really change that taste that much. Then you can even add some more fresh spinach or other greens on top as garnish before serving, so it really is a meal that can carry a lot of greens without turning boring. It is on the contrary quite fun and exciting food, and it’s something different you don’t see that often.
