Hey stranger, wow. So I haven't blogged in a year. Literally! Busy busy busy. But then yesterday I created something so delicious that I just am just bursting at the seams to share it with the world...
My challenge: create diner-style Vegan French Toast that could fool even the biggest skeptic.
And I did it! And now, so can you.
Vegan French Toast
4-6 Servings, depending on how hungry your crew is
2 C vanilla soy milk
4 T all-purpose flour
2 T maple syrup
2 T nutritional yeast (TRUST ME!)
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla extract
10-11 slices thick Texas-toast style bread (Note: slightly stale bread is best, but you can fake it by throwing the fresh bread into the oven at 350 degrees for about 7-8 mins. This part is important.)
-Mix together all ingredients other than bread.
-Soak stale/toasted bread in the mixture for about 5-10 seconds, then drip-drain and immediately place into a nonstick skillet.
-Over medium-high heat, cook until it's golden-brown on both sides.
-Slather in Peanut Butter Caramel (recipe below!) and your favorite fresh fruits.
Note: I didn’t need any oil at all when using my eco-friendly Ballarini skillet (c/o my friends at The Feed Feed). This isn't a sponsored post, I just like both of these folks a ton...so spreading the love accordingly!
Peanut Butter Caramel
3/4 C smooth peanut butter
1/4 C full-fat coconut milk (hard stuff on top included!)
2 T maple syrup (more if you want it sweeter)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 C vanilla soy milk
-Put all ingredients into a blender or Vitamix, blend on medium until smooth.
Brunch standard forever and ever. Promise! Also, maybe I'll start blogging again? What do you think?
