Easy Waffle Pizza on a plate for dinner

I adore cooking… which comes in handy seeing as this is a food blog and all.

However, as much as I love cooking up this chicken curry for dinner or this saute for breakfast, somedays are just simply busy.

And, on days like those, there have been many times when I’ve started my day and ended my day with waffles.

Variety of of Van's waffles

For example, for breakfast today my daughter had a Van’s® Gluten Free Blueberry Waffle with some maple syrup while I had a Van’s® Power Grains® Blueberry Waffle with berries.

Then, for dinner, my daughter and I enjoyed some well-toasted Van’s® Gluten Free Ancient Grains Waffles topped with a sautéed mix of kale, broccoli, onion, sundried tomatoes, mushrooms and olives with some leftover pan sautéed chicken on the side.

Light and crisp, Van’s Gluten Free Waffles are sweetened with fruit juice and made with whole grain brown rice flour. They are free from dairy/egg/artificial anything/cholesterol/corn & are Non-GMO project verified

On the other hand, Van’s Power Grains Waffles are packed with 10-12 g of protein per serving and keep me full and fueled all day long. Made with nutritious grains like cracked red wheat, steel cut oats, millet and brown rice, Van’s Power Grains Waffles contain 9-11g of whole grains per serving. Van’s is a great way to start my day!

Nutritious and Delicious, Van’s® products are Non GMO Project Verified and USDA Organic. And, I recently found out that Van’s® also has a variety of Gluten Free Sandwich Bars, Gluten Free Snack Bars, and Van’s® Gluten Free Crackers to snack on.

But, let’s get back to our dinner of sautéed greens, sundried tomatoes, mushrooms and olives piled high on a toasty Van’s® Waffle. My daughter likes to call these “Cheese-less Waffle Pizzas”.

This is one of those recipes that you don’t have to be strict in your measurements of the ingredients. For that matter, you can easily substitute out green olives for black olives and use dried sundried tomatoes or your favorite pickle or capers instead.

How to make Quick and Easy Waffle Pizzas

The key to this recipe is to sauté a red onion with olive oil for 12-15 minutes over a medium flame, until the onion begins to brown.

While the onion sautés, remove the stalks from the kale and chop up approximately a cup of kale and approximately a cup of broccoli florets.

Add the kale and broccoli to the pan with the onion.

Then, roughly measure out a couple of tablespoons of sundried tomatoes, canned mushrooms and canned black olives and add them to the greens and onion. Mix everything well and remove the pan from the heat.

Top some toasted Van’s® Waffles with the greens, olives, sundried tomato and mushroom mix. If you would like, garnish with parsley and chili flakes and enjoy for a quick and easy dinner idea. Or, top with a fried egg and enjoy for a leisurely weekend breakfast with a big cup of coffee.
