With the long weekend just around the corner, here is a tasty idea for a leisurely brunch! It’s a flavourful French toast recipe that I’ve served at many brunch get-togethers, and it always gets gobbled up. After all the gobbling is usually when I tell people that it’s a vegan recipe….for some reason the word “vegan” tends to scare people, but no need to be frightened! Especially of this recipe! It’s filling, (fairly) healthy and most importantly, delicious. Serve it with a heap of fresh fruit (and some icing sugar if you’re feeling dangerous) for an ideal start to your day.
