For the Waffles:

  • 100 g Cooked Beets
  • 50 g Beet Juice optional
  • 2 Eggs yolks and whites separated
  • 300 g Flour
  • 300 g Milk
  • 50 g melted butter
  • a pinch of Salt

For the Sandwich Filling:

  • 250 g Ricotta cheese
  • 1 slice Cured Ham per sandwich
  • 4 figs we used some we had the freezer as they are not in season
  • some Red cabbage sliced
  • a bit of Lettuce or greens of your choice
  • a few walnuts
  • Black pepper


Prepare the Waffles:

  • Blend cooked beets and beet juice until very smooth.
  • In a large bowl, place flour, salt, egg yolks and beetroot purée. Mix until combined.
  • Add the melted butter and mix until very smooth and homogeneous. We recommend using a hand mixer or stand mixer with the whisk attachment.
  • Incorporate the milk.
  • In another bowl, beat the egg whites and incorporate them gently to the batter. It's okay if the egg whites are not thoroughly incorporated.
  • Butter your waffle iron and prepare the waffles according to your waffle iron maker.

Make Waffles Sandwiches:

  • Spread a layer of ricotta cheese on a waffle. Pepper to taste.
  • Place a few leaves of salad, some red cabbage, a slice of ham roughly cut, a sliced fig and some walnuts.
  • Either eat as is as an open-faced sandwich or cover with another waffle to make a regular sandwich.


NOTE: If you’re on a dairy-free diet, you can easily replace the milk in the waffles by almond or soya milk. The butter can also be replaced with vegan butter or even olive oil.
