One thing I've never been quite able to veganly perfect is French toast. Until now! Yes, I have come up with what I think is an absolute replica of the French toast I remember my Mom making as a child. Of course I substituted organic, whole wheat bread for Wonderbread, but the outcome was no less delectable. Can't wait to hear what you guys think! Be sure and post a comment after you try this recipe :)
1 C soymilk
1/4 block tofu
2 TBS sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp nutritional yeast
a touch of freshly grated nutmeg
8 slices of bread
In a blender or food processor, combine all the ingredients and blend until as smooth as possible. Pour the mixture into a shallow dish that's big enough for you to dip the bread into. Heat a nonstick pan over med-high heat. Dip each piece of bread briefly into the mixture being sure to coat the entire piece. Immediately after coating with the mixture, place bread into the preheated pan. Allow to cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. Serve with a liberal dollop of Earth Balance and drizzle of maple syrup or agave nectar!
On another note, winter has fully set itself in here in Philadelphia and around the country. One question I often get from vegan men is where to find a fashionable coat that doesn't contain wool. If the idea of not wearing wool is new to you, check out my latest article on the issue.
I always refer people who ask about vegan fashion concerns over to The Discerning Brute. Joshua Katcher is an ethically handsome man who knows his vegan fashion. Be sure to check out his recent post on the announcement of a truly fashionable winter coat for men that will be out soon from Vaute Couture. They already have a line of coats for women available.
On a final note, don't miss the BBC World Service program, Animal and Us. It discusses the current state of the animal rights movement and contemplates why we haven't made much progress in the past few decades and offers a glimmer of hope for the movement going forward. DEFINITELY worth a listen. Part 1 and Part 2 are available for free online listening.
