French Toast

A versatile and delicious vegan French toast based on garbanzo bean flour. This has basically become our go-to weekend breakfast when we feel like treating ourselves. Since the toast itself is not sweet, it goes so well with both sweet and savory toppings. So enjoy with fruits, maple syrup drizzle, jams or go with your favorite plant cheese. You can also keep the leftovers (if any) in the fridge and warm up later, it will still be good.

Vegan Smoked Salmon

Red bell peppers, peeled and marinated, with a flavor and texture reminiscent of smoked salmon. Of course it is not a 1 to 1 imitation of salmon that would pass as one in blind taste tests, that’s not the intention. But rather it functions as one as a wonderful toast topping, sushi or sashimi component, or a stand alone appetizer.

Nowadays, I am totally into experimenting with marination, fermentation, and playing with textures to manipulate the ingredients into developing deeper flavors and invoking different senses. Removal of the bell pepper skin makes it more flesh like and reduces the pepper crunch. And it also allows the pepper to be infused better with marination. The sweet and spicy taste of the red pepper is well complemented by the deeply umami miso and the smoke. With the light cooking in the end, the result is an intense and colorful flavor profile that lights up the taste buds.

The recipe, along with a video description is below:
