Eggless French Toast


5 slices wholegrain bread (use a mild-flavored grain, like wheat-- not rye or sourdough, unless you actually happen to like your French toast with those breads)

1 cup soymilk
1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1 tbsp maple syrup or agave nectar
2 tbsp flaxseed meal
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup walnuts, finely crushed (optional)

Oil to coat skillet or griddle in a thin layer
Place all ingredients except the bread, walnuts and oil in a shallow container and mix well.
Place the walnuts in a separate dish
Dip the slices of bread one by one in the batter and coat on either side. I let them soak about 20-30 seconds on each side.
Dip into the walnuts
Heat a skillet and coat with a thin layer of oil
Place a slice of the French toast on the skillet and cook on each side until golden brown.
Serve hot with a drizzle of maple syrup or agave nectar

Update: I was thinking of including this in my original post because I knew someone would inevitably raise it: that vegetables like spinach and tomato have also been recalled for salmonella contamination in the past. It's like that ultimate argument weapon in a meat- or egg-eater's arsenal.

Unfortunately for them, though, I do have an answer: It's the meat, stupid (that's not original, by the way, but I just couldn't resist it!)

Salmonella are intestinal bacteria that grow and flourish in animal intestines. Since vegetables don't have an intestine, the reason they get contaminated is because germs from chicken and cow feces in animal farms contaminate waterways used for irrigating vegetables. It's been proven time and again in federal and state investigations of these salmonella outbreaks.

The bottomline is this: animal farming is what causes salmonella. And stopping animal farming and giving up animal products is the only way to stop future infections of anything we put into our mouths.

Let's all toast to that!
