Indulgent “Fre-gan” Vegan French Toast


For 4 slices of toast:

2 T. flax meal + 6 T. cold water

3/4 c. soy milk, or other non-dairy milk of your choice

2 t. vanilla extract

Cinnamon and nutmeg to taste

4 slices whole wheat bread, or day-old French bread

Combine the flax meal and water in a wide, shallow bowl and let stand for 2-4 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients except for the bread, stirring briskly with a fork. Lightly coat a frying pan or skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Dip slices of bread into the wet mixture, allowing the bread to be fully saturated before transferring to the pan. Cook each slice until the top starts to bubble, then flip. Serve with a drizzle of pure maple syrup or agave nectar and an extra dash of cinnamon.

Tip: I find that the flax/egg tends to separate, so be sure to coat the bread evenly with whatever might settle on the bottom of the bowl. This will also aid in the bubbling and crisping while cooking.
