Recipe:

Vegan Nashville Hot Chicken & Waffles

INGREDIENTS

Vegan Chicken & Waffle Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup LusOasis waffle mix (vegan, gluten free, & keto-friendly) – Gourmet Spicy
  • 2 pieces, approx. 4 oz of Incogmeato vegan chicken tenders (from Morningstar Farms) to go with each waffle mix variety

Garnish Ingredients:

Nashville hot chicken sliders

  • A pinch of Nashville Hot Chicken Seasoning
  • 4 thin slices of fresh cucumber
  • 1 slice of vegan cheese
  • 2 tsp vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp carrot ketchup
  • 2 thyme leave tips
  • 1 tsp shredded vegan cheese

DIRECTIONS

LusOasis waffle: 

  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup waffle mix with 1/2 cup water or nut milk, and 1.5 Tbsp oil (olive or coconut preferred).
  • Allow batter to sit for 5 minutes to settle
  • Cook over medium heat on a preheated waffle iron until edges are dry and crispy
  • This yields 4 crunchy pieces of 4” waffles to enjoy. If your waffle maker produces a whole round waffle, you may need to cut them into 4 pieces for making waffle sliders or waffle snacks.

Incogmeato vegan chicken tenders:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 
  • Place frozen tenders on a baking sheet and heat for 12-14 minutes, turn tenders over halfway through heating time. 

Let sit 3-5 minutes before serving. 

  • Place 2 pieces of 4” Gourmet Spicy waffles side by side on a plate
  • Put one piece of chicken tender on top of each waffle, add a pinch of Nashville Hot Chicken Seasoning
  • Place 2 thin slices of fresh cucumber on each tender, add 1 tsp vegan mayonnaise and 1 tsp carrot ketchup
  • Cut 1 slice of vegan cheese into half, slightly melt it in a griddle, and add each half slice on top of the seasoned cucumber slices
  • Cover each of the delicious assembly with another 4” waffle piece, add thyme leave tip and 1/2 tsp shredded vegan cheese on the top
  • This yields 2 scrumptious waffle sliders
