This almond vegan french toasts will light your morning up!
Yes. I’m gently passing through this (almost) end of Summer by sprinkling some cinnamon here and there. Remember my single-serving cinnamon dutch baby pancake with peaches? Isn’t cinnamon the most autumnal spice? I can’t wait to fill my home with its delicious scent. Apple, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg… All shades of orange, brown… Ahhh, #autumniscoming.
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. It makes me feel lucky and grateful. I mean, don’t you feel so lucky to wake up in the morning and find a meal on your table? A glass of milk? A bowl of oatmeal? Well, I do. We should all feel like that.
Another thing I love is preparing breakfast for my beloved ones: my boyfriend for now, and my kids in the future.
I consider french toast the king of breakfasts. Whenever I hear the words ‘french toast’ my mind goes straight to the breakfast room of a downtown Parisian luxury hotel. Ok, maybe it’s the word ‘french’ that tricks me, but I think of something sumptuous, luxurious. A royal breakfast.
[I’m also the flights of fancy’s Queen, you know.]
Anyway, French toasts are not even french. They’re called pain perdu (“lost bread”) or pain doré (golden bread) in the french cuisine and they’re more of a peasant dish made with stale bread. Also, not considered a breakfast at all, rather a dessert.
These almond vegan french toasts are the perfect breakfast…
So let’s talk about these almond vegan french toasts. Why vegan, if french toasts are an ‘eggy bread’?! Well, you know I love giving a twist to original recipes (and do things my way, always). Last week I was craving a comfort food for breakfast, I’ve opted for french toasts. I didn’t want to use a whole egg, though. So I soaked my loaf pan into soy milk and cinnamon. Stir fried them with a touch of oil (minimum requirement) and decorated with fresh organic figs that my grandma gave me. And here they are…
Let’s consider these almond vegan french toasts a comfort “transitional” food to slide towards the cooler season with calm. No rush. A touch of Autumn (a.k.a cinnamon), a pinch of Summer (sweet figs) and your morning will be lightened!
