Breakfast is a Dish Best Served Warm

Well folks we are at that awkward time of year where it's not really summer, but not quite fall.  I find that this time of year leans towards chilly mornings where you overdress, and then becomes broiling at mi-day, and you wonder why on earth you thought a sweater was a good idea.  This is my least favorite kind of weather.  Today I am proposing a possible solution.  Instead of piling on the clothes in the AM, dress regularly, and have a piping hot breakfast to get you going.  My suggestion would be this awesome tasting (and ridiculously easy) french toast.

Just look at it, sitting there in all of it's vegan-ey goodness.  *slurp, drool*  I found this amazing recipe on VegWeb, which is the holy grail of free vegan recipe sites. I highly recommend the site to everyone. Since I gave credit to the site, and made a few changes, I will post the recipe:

 2 tablespoons Vegenaise 
 1/4 cup soy milk
 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
 1/8 tablespoon cinnamon
 1 teaspoon organic suagr
 4 slices whole grain bread (go with something hearty, so it stays with you)
 Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)

Directions:  So simple, mix all ingredients but the powdered sugar.  Grease a pan with some spray oil or a little margarine.  Not much! Dunk the bread quickly and fry (don't soak it, you'll run out of mix).  I like to eat this  dish COVERED in fruit.  Not only is the fruit good for you, but it makes butter and syrup unnecessary, saving you empty calories. 

The key to this dish is the vegenaise.  Don't skip it, or try to use an alternative brand.  If you want that french toasty taste, it's gotta be vegenaise.  If you can't find it at your regular stores, check out http://www.cosmosveganshoppe.com/ which is a wonderful source for all sorts of vegan products.
