French Toast

I have really loved waking up on a Sunday morning and having a nice breakfast. Normally I just eat a banana or an apple for breakfast so I can get extra sleep on my busier days. I still work on Sundays but don't go in until noon. That leaves all morning to relax :)

This week's Sunday morning breakfast was french toast. This was my absolute favorite breakfast food growing up. Actually, it still is. I freaking love french toast. I was really excited when I found a vegan recipe for it in my favorite cookbook, Get Healthy, Go Vegan. I adapted it to suit my obsession with cinnamon and vanilla with the result of amazing vegan french toast!

Vegan French Toast
What You Need:

  • 8oz/1 pkg silken tofu
  • 1/2 cup vanilla soy/almond milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • Sliced whole wheat bread
The Process:
  1. Add all the ingredients, except the bread, to the blender. Blend on low until it is a smooth liquid. 
  2. Dip the bread slices into the mixture and place onto a heated pan. Cook on each side for about 3 minutes per side. 

I had mine with maple syrup and a glass of soy milk. It was a wonderful start to the day!
