I’m very much the unplanned cook. I don’t purchase ingredients with recipes in mind, I create recipes from what I have on-hand. This system can fail, but often, I enjoy the challenge and come up with some pretty creative ways to incorporate things from my pantry.
This stuffed French toast recipe was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest, but I have changed quite a bit. It’s simple, easy, vegan and next week, I’ll show you what to do with that leftover batter you’d hate to waste!
For the past few weeks, I’ve been experimenting with black bean meat substitutes. I first tried black bean balls (stop laughing and think meat balls). I baked them and didn’t use any kind of egg replacer. The result: dry and not what I was hoping. Last week, I tried my hand at making burgers, this time, adding ground flax to help bind and moisten. I also felt it would go great with some type of aioli, and I was right! This recipe is super easy and very satisfying. Happy Meatless Monday to all and to all a good bite!
Our editor Sandy Lo tested this vegan recipe on the toughest of meat-loving critics… It was unanimous – it’s a hit!
