Vegan Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast

Calling all French Toast Lovers! Especially the lovers who love it but can’t get past the strong egg taste! This one is for you! My Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast recipe is one that I’m so excited to share because this has been an ongoing issue for me. I love french toast but I dislike eggs no matter how you make it. Though eggs is just a single component of what makes french toast, it can sometimes end up being the star of it. I never realized that till I started going out for weekly brunches. I would order French toast at various restaurants and would be so turned off by the overbearing egg taste that I avoided ordering French toast completely for a few years. Until I came across an egg-less version at a local restaurant and fell in love. The restaurant’s french toast was chia-based which to me wasn’t the best visually but at the root of it all the french toast was vegan.

Vegan Chipotle Lentil and Sweet Plantain Tacos

I’ve never met a taco I didn’t like! But I also never really venture too much outside of what I’m not used to. I’ve tried many vegan and plant-based food but when it comes to tacos I don’t go out the black bean spectrum of tacos.  I’m a creature of habit and when I love something I stick to it. So when I ventured out and whipped these chipotle lentil plantain tacos up I was amazed at how good these were and mad that I didn’t make these sooner. Continue Reading…
