This was a new one for me, trying to create something delicious for a team member’s going away party at work. Most of my meals/dishes are very meat forward, but she’s vegan so we tried to make her a meal she’d remember. This tofu recipe blends the flavors, techniques, and style of a normal barbecue, but replaces the meat with extra firm tofu.
Who doesn’t love French Toast? Especially Stuffed French Toast! But the fat & calories relegate it to a decadent breakfast treat we only allow ourselves on special occasions. My grilled version swaps butter for a scant bit of healthy olive oil. Substituting agave for white sugar & Greek yogurt for cream cheese also decrease fat & calories & increase health benefits. The vitamins in fresh fruit & a homemade strawberry balsamic drizzle seal the deal. No you can have French Toast whenever you want!
I wanted to think outside of the box, plus pay tribute to my husband and my native american heritage. The bread is a Navajo Fry Bread, the burger is Pemmican meat patties, for the topping I made my own spin of a corn egg salad and for the fries I made corn fritter fries. Hope you all enjoy as much as my family did.
