Dinner and a Movie!

>> Saturday, May 21, 2011


This isn't technically a "recipe" per se... but instead it's more like a cute dinner idea. Anyways, a couple weeks ago, my mom and I had a marathon of the new HBO mini series, Mildred Pierce. The series has five parts and is about Mildred Pierce (played by Kate Winslet), a single mother who takes a job as a waitress during the depression to take care of her two daughters. Her love of cooking develops into her own restaurant where she features only two dinner options: chicken & waffles or chicken & vegetables. As my mom and I sat there getting hungrier and hungrier, I realized I had everything to whip up a vegan version of what we were seeing on screen!


I baked Gardein's Chiptole Lime Crispy Fingers until crispy and sauteed with some BBQ sauce. I threw some frozen vegan waffles in the toaster and then I steamed some corn, broccoli, carrots and mushrooms in a pan. I added some Earth Balance, s&p and nutritional yeast to the veggies, topped the waffles with maple syrup and voila!

I had to share because it seemed like such a cute movie night or date night idea. Not to mention, the food and series were excellent! :)
