Last season, Rick Castle, played by the ever so charming and ruggedly handsome Nathan Fillion, whips up a smorelette for his daughter Alexis, played by the talented and folically gifted Molly Quinn.
She was less than thrilled yet I had hopes that a vegan version of this dish could be amazing. Here’s the vegan recipe I came up with.
Nathan Fillion was on Jimmy Fallon yesterday talking about how a grilling mishap at his last barbecue party lead to steak grease on veggie burgers served to his vegan and vegetarian guests. I suggest that he consider making the vegan smorelette for his vegan/vegetarian friends, assuming he still has some (lol), at his next cookout.
What do you think about this? the vegan smorelette? the TV show Castle? Am I the only vegan watching tonight?
