Vegan French Toast with Blueberry Compote + Coconut Cream
A couple of weeks ago, I asked some of you what was your favorite breakfast to make on a slowww Sunday morning. There were some tempting ideas, but one that stuck out for me was vegan French toast! I had never thought to make French toast vegan? (thanks for the inspiration Jessi)!
Let’s be honest, I’ve never been a big French toast person. I always felt it tasted to “eggy” and often too soggy. Just wasn’t for me. But finally with this vegan French toast recipe, I can get on board!
A couple of things:
1. This recipe takes a little more time than the traditional egg version. 20-30 mins is necessary to let the chia & flax thicken up.
2. A slowwwer and low-medium heat is required for cooking the french toast to a nice crisp golden brown. Too high of heat/short cooking time may end up leaving you with soggy bread
3. Use a more dense bread like rye/multigrain/etc. and just lightly coat bread before placing in pan, as opposed to soaking the bread. I’ve tried making this recipe with white sourdough and it wasn’t as crisp as I would have liked.
