There are recipes with tofu, but I like to minimize my soy intake. A great soak for french toast is almond milk with mashed bananas and vanilla extract. This works best on a thickly-sliced bread, like sourdough.
Dolores K is right!!! I make this recipe all the time...My little girl comes running to kitchen because it smells so awesome!! It's a quick and inexpensive supper too...you can spread raw almond or peanut butter on it for a change...I substitute whole wheat flour and add a little extra almond milk.
I make a french toast using chick pea flour, I love it and so does my omni hubby. Its the Fronch Toast recipe from the Vegan with a Vengence cook. I also really like the vegweb website for other fun recipes. Go to your library and check out some cookbooks, its so much fun to try new things.
I'm definately trying the Chef Chloe recipe next time I have some down time.
If you're in a hurry, you can just soak the bread in plain maple syrup (I prefer grade B, tastes like maple instead of sugar water). Then grill it up, as simple as that! I'm sure the Chef Chloe one is way yummier and decadent, but if you want super quick and satisfying, give this a try. :)
Mcdougalonline.com has a very interesting cashew milk french toast that I haven't tried yet but plan to. Go to the recipes section and look for Cashew French Toast. She says she has made it for her family for years. Mary McDougall has a lot of great recipes and I have tried several of them. I have tried Split Pea Soup, Penne Florentine, McVeggie Burgers, tofu sour cream, tofu mayo. I only use organic tofu and seem to have no problems with it but be sure and use only reputable companies for it.
