We love to start our day with breakfast together. Its the Dirty Hippie’s favorite meal of the day. Today’s selection: Blueberry French Toast. It’s fast, crazy easy and filling. Don’t like blueberries? You can easily convert this simple recipe for strawberry, orange or your favorite flavor. It’s all good, Baby!
1 box Mori-Nu silken tofu, firm; drained
2 Tbls blueberry preserves
1/2 cup plain, unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
8 slices sourdough bread
Earth Balance, to saute
handful of fresh blueberries, maple syrup and powdered sugar, to serve
Toss the silken tofu, preserves almond milk and cinnamon in a blender. Puree until smooth and all purple. Gorgeous! In a low dish, soak both sides of each slice of bread in the tofu blend. Coat well and toss into a warm skillet or griddle with desired amount of Earth Balance. Don’t saute over high, the tofu blend will scorch. Use gradual heat and the French toast will be crisp and heavenly in no time.
Serve warm sprinkled liberally with fresh blueberries, powdered sugar and maple syrup.
Wanna change it up? No thang! Substitute strawberry jam, orange marmalade, apriot preserves and serve with a coordinating – or totally contrasting – fresh fruit on top!
Serves 4, ready in about 10 minutes
Many happy mornings to you!
