Vegan French Toast
I have posted up a vegan french toast recipe before made with silken tofu which I still really love mostly because it forms a nice crust, but for those who like to avoid soy this french toast recipe is a really yummy alternative. To be fair the recipe is not purely my own but only slightly adapted from a video that popped up on my facebook wall. The video came from Thrive Market but since then I have seen a few more very similar recipes from different bloggers so I really do not know how came up with the recipe first and do not know who to credit. This is my own take on it. I used wholemeal vienna bread that was a few days old. This is probably why it looks a little darker than normal french toast but you can use any bread you want, including gluten free bread if your avoiding gluten, just make sure it is at least a day old so that it does not go too soggy. I am surprised that my husband prefers vegan french toast over regular french toast since he loves eggs but any time I make vegan french toast he makes sure to tell me that its better than the real thing.
For the sake of this recipe I just wanted to give a shout out to Eastgate Shopping Centre in Bondi Junction, in particular for my Sydney audience.
