Just dive right in

After reading so many wonderful blogs about food and photography and life in general, I thought I’d jump right in with one of my own. To learn a little more, you can read here.

To start off with, I thought I’d share one of my all-time favorite breakfast recipes: french toast. Yes, I’m aware that it’s no longer morning – but hey, french toast is good any time 🙂

There are a lot of vegan french toast recipes out there and after some trial and error, here’s what has worked best for me:

Vegan French Toast

serves two hungry adults

Materials:

Batter:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk (the canned version)
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon raw sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

4 thick slices of sourdough bread

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

other bread works fine, too – but sourdough is sublime

Topping:

  • 1 cup frozen berries
  • 1-2 tablespoons oil (canola or coconut)
  • powdered sugar

Methods

1. Heat skillet over medium heat and add ~2 tbsp of vegan margarine

2. Add batter ingredients to blender & blend until smooth; pour into shallow bowl.

3. Dip bread into batter and place on heated skillet.

4. BE PATIENT and allow to cook 3-4 minutes on each side. I like to wiggle the spatula underneath every so often just to ensure the bread doesn’t stick

note: It is very important to keep the skillet well greased so that the toast does not stick


5. While toast is cooking: in a separate small pan, add canola or coconut oil and heat over medium-low heat. Add in frozen berries and cook ~4-5 minutes or until berries are soft and juicy.

6. Plate up: pour the berry topping over your french toast, top off with a dusting of powdered sugar and drizzle of maple syrup and enjoy with your favorite morning beverage!

Results & Conclusions:

YUM!

    5. Tasted delish! I haven’t had French toast in so long, but my non-vegan boyfriend thought they were amazing as well. You definitely need to be patient while cooking them, 4 minutes minimum on each side, and make sure the pan is hot enough. I wound up re-frying my first batch which didn’t really brown and stayed soggy, but they were great once the pan was hot. Thanks so much for the great recipe!
