Quick, Easy, Delicious French Toast!

What you need: 

12 ounces soft silken tofu
1 cup nondairy milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons maple syrup
8 slices bread

What you do: 

1) Heat a nonstick skillet on medium heat.
2) In a blender, combine first five ingredients until thoroughly pureed. Pour into a shallow bowl or large plate (you may need to do this in two batches).
3) Dip both sides of the bread into liquid and then immediately transfer to pan--you don't want to let it sit or it will get too soggy. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until it turns a nice caramel color. Serve with maple syrup, bananas, blueberries, whatever!

This is a great recipe.  My partner and I both loved it.  I toasted the bread a bit before dipping it in the sauce (I read somewhere that this is a good idea with French toast), and it turned out perfectly.  Thank you!


At first I found this recipe difficult to manage.  The tofu mixture really globs onto the bread, and anyone who has ever sauteed tofu (which I imagine is pretty much everyone on this site) knows that it takes a long time for the tofu to turn golden.  I was ending up with soggy pieces of bread and globs of tofu in the pan.

I ended up using a pastry brush and lightly coating one side of the bread with the mixture.  I put that face down in the pan, then I brushed the other side (not always easy to do with sizzling oil nearby.  I was able to make a whole loaf full of french toast, and I still had mixture left over. 

I froze up servings of french toast in tin foil.  Now when I want french toast I just take some out of the freezer and put it in the toaster/toaster oven once thawed.
