Savory Tex-Mex French Toast

3/4 Cup Full-Fat Coconut Milk

1 Packet Simply Organic Southwest Taco Simmer Sauce

1 Tablespoon Arrowroot

1 Tablespoon Nutritional Yeast

4 - 6 (1-Inch Thick) Slices Hearty Country Bread

To Serve:

Sliced Avocado

Pico de Gallo

Toasted Pepitas

In a large, shallow dish, whisk together the coconut milk, simmer sauce, arrowroot, and nutritional yeast. Once smooth, dip the first two slices of bread into the mixture, allowing the pieces to soak for about a minute before flipping them over to the opposite side. You want to saturate the slices without having them disintegrate into the liquid.

Meanwhile, begin heating a large skillet over medium heat. Use nonstick or lightly grease any other material. Once hot, gently place the saturated bread onto the sizzling surface, and let cook, undisturbed, for 3 - 4 minutes. Peek to check on the underside; if it's nicely golden-brown, go ahead and give it a flip. Cook for another 3 - 4 minutes on the opposite side.

Transfer to a serving plate and top with as many of the suggested garnishes as desired. Repeat with the remaining bread, and enjoy!

Makes 2 - 3 Servings
