Don’t you just love fall weekends? It’s been surprisingly beautiful in Vancouver lately (I hope I don’t jinx it!). It’s been extremely sunny but with nice cold crisp air. My favourite kind of days!
Last night, I was going to go for a drink with a few friends at Chambar, but decided last minute that we were all exhausted – lame.. I know!. It had been quite a week… I headed home and feasted on some brown rice pasta with herb olive oil sauce and steamed spinach. It’s definitely not the same as the Soup de celeri-rave at Chambar, but it did the trick
Ok, ok.. “Hi I’m Michelle and I have a pumpkin addiction” .. I feel like I need to join a PA Meeting ( Pumpkin Anonyomous). I follow this great tumblr called Finding Vegan. They post a ton of picures of great tasting vegan recipes! I know some of the blogs I read on a daily are featured on there . I stumbled upon this recipe and had to try it!
I feel slightly ashamed that I had two meals last night… I ate my pasta when I came home at like 6 and then was ravished by like 8, so I decided to make this vegan pumpkin french toast. I only made a couple of slices and they were divine! Seriously AMAZING! I want to bow down to whomever came up with this recipe cause I could have ate the entire bag of Udi’s Gluten Free Bread with this pumpkin goodness toasted on there.
If your like me and use Sunday as your “treat day” then you need to treat yourself to this Vegan Pumpkin French Toast! I cannot take credit for this recipe. I just made 2 adjustments for my preference, but the recipe is from Post Punk Kitchen.
Vegan Pumpkin French Toast
8 pieces of bread (I used Udi’s Gluten Free)
1 1/2 cup Vanilla Rice Milk
1 cup Pumpkin Puree
2 tbsp Arrowroot Powder
2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp Ground Cloves
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp Maple Syrup
Earth Balance – Soy Free
Mix together all ingredients. Dip the bread slices into the pumpkin mix. Let the bread soak in the batter for 5 minutes (Udi’s bread doesn’t take long). Preheat pan and smear Earth Balance on the pan, so the french toast doesn’t stick! Place 3 pieces onto the pan and let brown. Serve with powered Stevia or Maple Syrup!
What’s your favourite weekend breakfast?
I hope you guys have a great rest of your weekend!
