Valentine’s Day Breakfast

Happy Valentine’s Day!

For breakfast, I made waffles today and topped them with fruit compote.  They turned out delicious, and I liked how the fruit juice’s pale pink hue was perfect for a day centered around pink and red.

I usually make waffles from scratch, generally from the terrific book, The Global Vegan Waffle Cookbook by Dave Wheitner.  However, today I was feeling lazy, so I just used this mix and it was simple and yummy.

For the compote, I just dumped a bag each of frozen strawberries and frozen peaches into a sauce pan and heated until bubbly.  To assemble:  place your waffle on the plate, put a little vegan buttery spread on the waffle (optional), slather some compote on top (be sure to let some extra juice saturate it a bit), and then drizzle a bit of maple syrup over it.

Enjoy!  xo
