black bean soup and french toast..not together though.. silly
Yesterday I pressure cooked some black beans. Well, long story short I forgot them in the pot after releasing the pressure and well, they got over cooked. So what do you do w/ over cooked black beans you make this kid friendly and favorite Vegan Black Bean Soup! Be warned this recipe makes heck of a lot! Which is good.. means left overs tonight! yea! I like to add to mine some chipotle hot sauce, extra cilantro and a a dab of vegan sour cream ! I bet a sweet potato would be an awesome addition as well. We have tried many different black bean soups, this one is the kids fave.
Okay.. soo Monday night we had to go to Eli's kindergarten open house. Part of the festivities was a pot luck.. And well, I was not prepared w/ our own little meal soo I kinda bribed the kids to come home early and we would have "french toast" and "sausage". The kids always seem to be tickled by having a breakfast for dinner. I veganized this recipe before we were trying to go vegan, out of necessity because Emma had been diagnosed to be allergic to dairy.. I had found two different recipes that I combined w/ fabulous results..
Julees french toast
3/4 cup blanched then skinned almonds
1/4 cup soy creamer
3/4 cup soy milk
3 tsp. maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
I put in all in a blender and blend until smooth.. dip bread in mixture and I am betting you know the rest.. fry until golden brown.
We topped ours w/ earth balance and Vive le vegans blueberry maple syrup.. (thank you very much for the idea Vicki)
