I've made French toast for years according to the recipe in "Joy of Cooking." It called for orange juice; I substituted pineapple juice. I used to dust it with powdered sugar, but I rarely do that any more. The sugar sure looks pretty, but it must not affect the taste much, because no one seems to notice when I leave it off. My Type As are always happy when I serve French toast for breakfast.
Yesterday morning I was in the mood to try something new, so I made the French toast recipe from "Confessions of a Sneaky Organic Cook." I substituted ground flax seed for the wheat germ. My daughter said the other French toast is a little fruity, while this one is a little nutty. Both As liked it a lot, and said to put it on the repeat recipe list.
Here are the ingredients:
Â½ cup soy milk
1 tsp salt
Â½ cup ground flax seed
1 Tbsp blackstrap molasses
dash of cinnamon
6 slices of Ezekiel bread
Mix the first 6 ingredients together. Soak each piece of bread in the egg mixture until it is soft. I cooked mine on a non stick griddle. If you use a skillet, you will probably have to use some butter or cooking spray.
Just finished Life's Solution: Inevitable Humans in a Lonely Universe by Simon Conway Morris. Interesting book. He had a reproduction of this humorous drawing showing the size of a compound eye that would be required to have the same spatial resolution as a human eye. Looks heavy and is apparently keeping the owner from doing much exercise.
