    1 cup / 225 grams frozen baby spinach, thawed ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

    ½ teaspoon salt

    ½ teaspoon cumin

    1 cup / 115 grams grated cheddar cheese

    8 eggs, at room temperature

    For the Avocado Sauce:

    1 medium avocado, pitted, diced

    ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

    1/3 teaspoon salt

    2 limes, juiced

    2 tablespoons coconut milk, unsweetened


    1. Take a non-stick waffle iron, plug it in, select the medium or medium-high heat setting and let it preheat until ready to use; it could also be indicated with an indicator light changing its color.
    2. Meanwhile, prepare the batter for the chaffles, and for this, squeeze moisture from the spinach in a fine sieve as much as possible and then chop it.
    3. Take a large bowl, add spinach in it along with cheese, cumin, black pepper, salt and eggs, and stir with a hand whisk until smooth.
    4. Use a ladle to pour one-fourth of the prepared batter into the heated waffle iron in a spiral direction, starting from the edges, then shut the lid and cook for 5 minutes or more until solid and nicely browned; the cooked waffle will look like a cake.
    5. When done, transfer chaffles to a plate with a silicone spatula and repeat with the remaining batter.
    6. In the meantime, prepare the sauce, and for this, place diced avocado in a blender along with remaining ingredients and process

    for 1 minute until smooth.

    1. Let chaffles stand for some time until crispy, then drizzle with prepared avocado sauce and serve straight away.
