We are all trying to do our bit for the environment & we know that cutting meat out of our diet makes a huge impact. So My Green Australia brings you Meat Free Mid Week Recipes – Great French Toast.
Ok so this isn’t what you would typically have for dinner (well… I would!) but this recipe was tooo delish to pass up!
Yeast-free bread slices (French Meadow Summer Bread or whole spelt bread are good options)
1 1/2 cups firm tofu
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons rice syrup
1/2 cup soy milk
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon corn oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
Oil of your choice (olive, safflower, sunflower, etc.) for frying
Blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy.
If too thick, add more soy milk.
Dip bread in batter and fry in hot oiled skillet until browned on both sides.
Serve with maple syrup.
Or you can make a great cinnamon butter by mixing cinnamon together with Earth Balance to taste.
You can also make a maple/flax syrup by mixing 1/2 cup maple syrup and 2 teaspoons flax seed oil (that kind of ratio, because you don’t want to make more syrup/flax than you will use)
Mix them together well.
The oil adds a nice layer to the syrup.
