When thinking of something special to make for this celebration of Canada's 150th birthday I came across Vegan Banana French Toast. I would like to thank one of my new Twitter followers, @VegLatino for this week's post. This is a very simple recipe for a favourite breakfast choice of mine. This is nut-free as well. The combination of flavours when plated and eaten are tantalizing!!
6 slices day old thickly cut sourdough bread
2 medium bananas
1/4 t Fruit Fresh
1 C non dairy milk substitute
2 T maple syrup
2 T flour
1/2 t vanilla extract
1 t coconut oil
1/4 t nutmeg
1/8 tsp of salt
1/8 t pepper
2 ripe bananas
1/2 t Fruit Fresh
1 T coconut oil
2 T coconut sugar
2 T non dairy milk substitute
1/8 t nutmeg
Watermelon cubes with chocolate syrup
Slice bananas and mix in Fruit Fresh. Mash the bananas thoroughly.
Add to mashed bananas milk substitute, maple syrup, flour, vanilla, coconut oil, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Emulsify until very smooth.
Prepare caramelized bananas. Heat coconut oil in non-stick saute pan. Add coconut sugar, milk substitute, and nutmeg to heated coconut oil. Take off the heat.
Slice the bananas for caramelized bananas. Add to heated ingredients in Step 3. Place pan back on heat and cook bananas until they are caramelized stirring infrequently.
Place bread slices, one at a time, in the Bread Dip mixture until they are soaked.
Place soaked bread pieces of bread in frying pan.
Cook until they lift easily to turn over. Finished browning the other side.
Daniel Bissonnette from British Columbia Canada shares why children need to eat breakfast before going to school:
Did you know: that it takes 40 gallons of maple sap to make 1 gallon of maple syrup? And that there is one way to cut watermelon that eliminates wasting the delicious meat of the fruit? Here's how to do it?
In conclusion: I tried using a cast iron frying pan initially for cooking the toast, however it was impossible to turn them over with their cooked goodness. Also, instead of berries as garnish I used watermelon cubes with chocolate syrup dropped on top. It was supposed to drizzle but did not. :(
This was incredibly delicious!!
Dear Reader: We have a Saskatchewan Roughrider game today against the Winnipeg BlueBombers. Lots of activities around our Legislative Building before the game and fireworks after the game.
What plans do you have for your celebration of your national day?
