Stuffed French Toast
We post here about recipes from Vegetarian Times on occasion but for vegans, VegNews is usually a better read - and they've got more recipes in their pages these days too. The Strawberry-Ricotta French Toast in the latest issue looked particularly appealing, and when we found the first strawberries of the season at the farmer's market yesterday that sealed the deal. This was french toast taken to another level, each piece stuffed with strawberries and a citrus-flavored vegan ricotta, and dipped in a banana and cinnamon-flavored batter. It made for an outstanding brunch, but it took a lot more time to make it than it did to eat it - especially if you include washing the resulting pile of dishes. It's not something you can make every day but we'll definitely keep this recipe around for special occasions.
