One of my first memories as a child was sitting in my booster seat anxiously waiting for my mom to cook up my favorite meal of all time. Years later I learned how to veganize it and now I make it all the time for my family. It’s a quick and simple meal that’s perfect for any busy vegan on the go.  One thing I can guarantee you, this recipe will revolutionize the way you cook.

 

Vegan Toast Au Pain

Ingredients

  • 1 – 2 slices of bread (any flavor of bread will do)

Instructions:

Place bread into a toaster or toaster oven until lightly browned on both sides.  Be careful not to overcook!  Top browned bread with a topping of your choice.

Total Time: 5 min
Prep: 1 min
Cook: 2 min
Yield: 1 serving
Level: Easy

This recipe is so versatile!  Try making it for breakfasts, lunches, or dinners!  Try topping your Toast Au Pain with vegan butter, peanut butter, or jam for a tasty meal.  You could even top Toast Au Pain with fruit such as bananas!  Use different styles of bread to create a Toast Au Pain Platter for parties.  Toast Au Pain also makes a perfect no fuss, no muss date meal or picnic food.

Another variation: Using two pieces of bread, leave untoasted, add toppings of your choice, and put together to make a “sandwich.”  So many variations, so many ways to have a delicious and quick vegan meal!

Chef’s note: Save time by purchasing pre-sliced bread at the local bakery.  Sometimes you’ll be able to find it prepackaged in the “bread” aisle of the grocery store.
