In an effort to reduce the amount of soy in our diet (it just felt like too much) I came up with this recipe. I didn't do anything brilliant - mostly just found a recipe for cashew french toast and combined it with our usual tofu french toast recipe to get the same great flavours.
Cashew French Toast
2 cups cashews (soaked if time allows)
3/4 cups almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 TBSP maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
~10 pieces of soft whole wheat sandwich bread, stale or lightly toasted
oil for pan frying
Put all ingredients except the bread and oil in blender and blend, add a little more milk if it seems too thick.
Dip the bread in the mixture, if there's lots of excess scrape it off.
Fry in oil on medium heat.
Serve with maple syrup.
PS - Happy St. Patrick's Day from Henry. We went out for dinner in uptown and afterward walked around the festivities (the weather was beautiful and it is a university town so there were a lot of party-ers out and about). And Henry had a wonderful time. One woman gave him a little hat and once he had the hat everyone loved him. He ran all around the main public square. He danced to a man playing a drum. Another woman danced with him and gave him a necklace. He was a little nervous about the attention sometimes but mostly he was having so much fun and was very interested in the people.
