I normally use flaxseed/ water for a binder, but with French toast you are really needing the egg to make the custard... Is Ener-G a good fit for this? (I've never tried it and don't want to buy it just for this if it's no good.) I love, well, really all things custard-y and it just occurred to me that I don't know how to make them now. Help!!! Thanks.

I wouldn't use ener-g for french toast. There are lots of vegan french toast recipes out there, here's one on vegweb that has good reviews (sorry I've never tried it): http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=5179.0

Most recipes are just soy or almond milk with a couple tablespoons of flour mixed in.

I find a slice of tofu grilled on some margarine with water and maple syrup poured over to reduce is really good.

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

I've made pumpkin french toast with great success in the past. It's really yummy!



My bf's hardcore omni friend thoroughly enjoyed this recipe:

I haven't tried these yet, but boy does it look good. It's by Chef Chloe so it's got to be good.

My boyfriend made this for me one morning (which is a great recipe since he had all the ingredients at his house. Nothing too "crazy"). It was really good. I'm sure the pumpkin recipe would be amazing too, but for an easy, quick, super yummy breakfast, this one is great!

My fave is the one on the back of the Rice Dream package:



Rice Dream French Toast



Makes 2-3 servings.



Ingredients





•1 1/2 cups Rice Dream Classic Original

•4-6 slices whole wheat bread

•3 Tbs. arrowroot powder

•3-4 Tbs. vegetable oil or EB

•1 tsp. cinnamon



Instructions

In a wide bowl, whisk together Rice Dream, cinnamon, and arrowroot. Cut bread into triangles; soak bread in the Rice Dream mixture until softened, 1-3 minutes. Heat portions of the oil or butter in a frying pan or griddle, over medium - high heat. Add several pieces of the soaked bread; do not overcrowd the pan. Cook evenly on both sides for 2-3 minutes or until each is browned. Serve immediately with your favorite fruits, jam or maple syrup.



*I've also made this with almond milk and it was just as tasty.
