Vanilla French Toast
1 vanilla bean, scraped
2 cups non–dairy milk
⅓ cup cashew butter
¼ cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons egg replacer or corn starch
½ tablespoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
A pinch of sea salt
Rustic fresh bread or your favorite whole grain bread, sliced in 1-inch slices
1 tablespoon non-dairy margarine
Bourbon-spiced maple syrup (or regular maple syrup)
A drizzle of cashew vanilla cream (optional)
Prepare the batter: In a blender, combine all ingredients until smooth. Set aside.
Prepare the French toast: Place the sliced bread into the batter and soak for about 1 minute. On a flat pan, flat grill or large fry pan, add 1 tablespoon of non-dairy margarine and melt. Once melted, put slices of the soaked bread onto the grill or pan. Grill on medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, flip the bread and cook until the other side is lightly golden.
