Cornelia Guest’s ‘Simple Pleasures’: French Toast
This recipe comes from Cornelia Guest’s ‘Simple Pleasures.’ It was the first time I have had vegan French toast. The recipe uses silken tofu, milk (almond, hemp, or soy), corn starch (I used Ener-G Egg Replacer instead: find out more about this and other egg replacements here!), sugar (I used maple syrup instead of refined white sugar<—yuck), canola oil (you can use coconut or another oil of choice), vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
Blend all the ingredients together to make the batter. The recipe also calls for day old Italian bread, but I thought using some Ezekiel sprouted grain bread would be a heartier choice! (More on sprouted grains soon!)
Make sure the bread is coated very thick because the consistency of the batter differs a bit from traditional french toast; this batter will not soak through the bread to make it soggy.
Let the bread cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side on a medium heat. I never would have known that there is no egg in this recipe. Oui, it was awesome!
Naturalie’s Note: Top it off with some warm maple syrup, Earth Balance, or berries.
