Breakfast, the most important meal of the day, can often be the most unhealthy (bacon, eggs, cheese and buttered toast!). Here’s a way to turn a traditional recipe into a meal that’s as satisfying to the soul as it is to the body because no animal products are used.
This is a great brunch recipe because the French Toast is baked, requiring less attention from the host or hostess.

½ cube soft tofu (8ozs)
1T nut butter (peanut, cashew, almond etc.)
1T maple syrup
1 cup soy milk (or other non dairy milk)
