  • Instructions

    To make the waffles :

    • Combine the oil, agave, milk, juice, and salt in a large bowl. Add the flour and yeast and stir for a few minutes, stabbing the dough with a spatula to make sure it gets kneaded.
    • Cover and let rise for 2 hours, until its size doubles.
    • Punch down the dough and divide it into 4 or 8 equal portions; the dough will be sticky, so moisten your hands if needed.
    • Use a heaping ½ cup dough for 4 portions or ¼ cup for 8 portions. Place portions on a piece of parchment paper and let rest for 15 minutes.
    • Following the manufacturer’s instructions, heat a waffle iron and coat lightly with spray. Place one (if using a standard waffle iron) or two (if using a large and wide Belgian waffle iron) portions of dough on the iron and press closed for a few seconds to spread the dough.
    • Bake for 8 minutes, or until golden brown and the edges of the waffles aren’t doughy. Cool waffles on a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining dough.

    To make the beans :

    • Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the tomatoes, shallot, and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat for 2 minutes, until the tomatoes get saucy.
    • Combine the vinegar, tomato paste, and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl. Add to the pan, and cook for 1 minute. Add the beans, salt, and pepper, and cook for 2 minutes longer, stirring occasionally.

    To assemble the Sandwiches :

    • Spread butter on each waffle.
    • Divide the bean mixture among the waffles, sprinkle with a little parsley, and serve.
