Waste Free ‘Cheesy’ Cauli Waffles

  • Serves 2
  • Prep in 5 minutes
  • Cook in 15 minutes

One of the biggest issues we face in our modern world is food waste, & one of my most favourite things to do is to turn something that could’ve been trash into treasure.

Enter stage right these brunch beauties made from the humble cauliflower leaf.

If you’ve never just roasted a cauliflower leaf then firstly you must do that & then you must make these.
