This is Alicia Silverstone’s favorite homemade french toast. Coincidentally, it is also my favorite homemade french toast – which is easily my favorite breakfast food.
I saw this on her blog, The Kind Life, about a year ago and could not wait to try it out. I had really high hopes that this would be good because I missed the sweet, gooey goodness of egg-battered bread terribly. This more than exceeded my expectations.
Incredibly, this is 100% as good as traditional french toast and yet cruelty-free and actually somewhat healthy! I would serve this to a non-veg crowd any day.
Added bonus: this recipe takes about 10 minutes from start to finish. Perfect for a morning meal if you’re anything like me and can barely wait the time it takes to pour a bowl of cereal to get food in your mouth in the morning.

1 1/2 cups firm tofu
Bread of choice (I like Wheat & Oat bread from Rudi’s Organic)
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbs brown rice syrup
1/2 cups soy milk (any non-dairy milk will do)

1 tbs corn oil
1 tsp vanilla
Oil of your choice for grill or pan
- Blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy
- If too thick, add more soy milk
- Dip bread in batter (scrape each side to remove excess before grilling) and fry in hot oiled skillet or griddle until browned on both sides
- Serve with maple syrup and Earth Balance
