Classic French Toast

Non classé, Sweet

Pain perdu (French toast) plans for the weekend🍞

SAVE this classic French toast recipe to enjoy during the holidays!

RECIPE

In a bowl, add 1/4 cup cornstarch. Progressively mix in 1 cup plant milk until the cornstarch is dissolved.

Add 1 tsp ground flaxseeds, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 2 tsp maple syrup, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp baking powder. 

Cut large slices of vegan brioche and soak them into the mixture. It’s a good time to use brioche that is starting to dry out.

Heat a pan over medium heat with vegan butter and add the soaked slices of brioche. Let it cook until golden and flip it to get both sides crispy.

Enjoy right away!

What is your favorite toppings for French toast? I have to stay that this chocolate-banana-coconut combo was very decadent!

Making beans sexy💫

This easy maple beans recipe is too good not to share right away and with the frigid temperatures in Montréal this weekend I figured everyone could use a little extra comfort food!

#RECIPE

MAPLE BEANS

2 cups navy beans (and soaking water)

3 cups fresh water

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup ketchup

1 big onion, chopped

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp miso paste

1/2 tsp salt

Back pepper

Soak the beans overnight. Drain and discard soaking water. Place all of the ingredients into a slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours. The mixture will continue thickening once cooked.

Enjoy with buttered toast and, if you are feeling extra, a side of vegan ham, vegan sausage, steamed spinach, baked tomato and/or sautéed mushrooms for a full English breakfast.
