Vegan Maple-Pecan French Toast

Nothing is better than having a dessert-worthy dish and calling it breakfast.

Maple syrup sets off rich slices of sweet battered toast, guaranteed to please any morning palate.

Serves 4

What You Need:

3/4 cup chopped toasted pecans
1-1/4 cups soymilk or other dairy-free milk
4 ounces silken tofu, drained
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
8 slices whole-grain or sprouted bread

What You Do:

 1. Into a dry blender, place 1/4 cup pecans and grind to a powder. Add soymilk, tofu, vanilla, and 1/4 cup maple syrup and blend until smooth. Pour into a large shallow bowl and dip in bread, coating both sides evenly with the batter.

2. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or skillet over medium-high heat. Add prepared bread, and cook until browned on both sides. Keep cooked French toast warm in the oven while preparing remaining slices.

3. In a small saucepan, combine remaining 1/2 cup of maple syrup and remaining 1/2 cup pecans and heat until warm. Spoon over the French toast and serve at once.
