Cashew French Toast
There are several recipes that I love in the "Becoming Vegetarian" book by Melina and Davis. I find myself returning to it frequently. This recipe for Cashew French Toast always comes out fabulous for us. I think it actually tastes better than egg-based french toast.
Cashew French Toast Ingredients:
1/2 cup raw cashew pieces
1 cup soymilk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1TB maple syrup
I usually add some ground cinnamon too!
6 slices of bread
oil for the pan or cooking spray
Grind cashews in a blender or food processor until they are powdery. This will take some time. Don't rush it or the french toast will be gritty. Add other ingredients (except the oil and bread) and continue to blend/process until smooth. Pour into a shallow bowl. Oil or spray a skillet and preheat over medium heat. Dip bread in cashew mixture and place a few slices into the pan. Do not overlap. Flip once browned. You will likely need to re-oil/spray the pan before cooking additional slices.
