Savory Gluten-Free Waffles with Roots & Radicchio
Welcome to the next installment of our Savory Waffle Recipes! These easy combos are a delightful way to enjoy your leftovers and doggie bags in an utterly delicious and attractive way.
So don’t leave that 1/2 cup of leftovers on your plate! Save it for a satisfying meal the next day. And, you’ll be plenty full because ZEGO oatmeal is very high in protein and fiber (see our Double Protein Oats).
The Key to Succeeding with Savory Waffle Recipes
The best thing to do to get started on this savory waffle bandwagon of joy is to get a mini-waffle maker. They are so small and FUN. In fact, they are so easy to use that they turn that “I don’t want to cook” feeling to and “I CAN MAKE MINI WAFFLES!!” fever.
What’s fantastic about these gluten-free savory waffle recipes we will share is that you don’t need to have much volume of leftovers to make something absolutely fabulous.
Today’s Featured Gluten-Free Waffle Feature
Today we are using a lovely side veggie combo of golden beets, fennel bulb, and radicchio. We weren’t sure how the beets would do in our mini-waffle maker. But low and behold, they cooked amazingly well!

Savory Gluten-Free Waffles with Golden Beets, Fennel Bulb, and Radicchio
½-1 cup cooked ZEGO Double Protein Oats
½ root salad leftovers – our combo for this savory waffle recipe is golden beets, sliced fennel bulb, and radicchio. Our beets were cut into about 3/4″ pieces.
1 egg or egg substitute like a flax egg
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Plug in your mini-waffle maker to heat it up.
Stir all the ingredients together.
Spoon 1-2 tablespoons onto the hot waffle maker and close.
To test for doneness, bounce your finger on the top of the waffle and see if it feels firm. If you take them out too early, you can always put them back in to crisp up. Or, pop the cooked waffles in the air fryer for the ultimate super-crunchy savory waffles.
We highly recommend you use a mini-waffle maker. They cost under $30 and fit easily in a crowded cabinet. Mini waffle makers cook VERY evenly and quickly. And, of course, they are super fun!
