Savory French Toast

Over the years I've realized why I don't like breakfast: I'm just not that into sweets and a lot of the most popular dishes for the "most important meal of the day" is sweet. Think donuts, pancakes, waffles, crepes, French toast, etc. I know it might sound crazy, but I'm just not that into it.

I've had some pretty great success in the past transforming traditional sweet dishes into savory and frankly I'm not sure what took me so long to try something like this. 

The star of this savory French toast is the leftover 52 Garlic Clove Soup. If you don't have any soup try substituting Cashew Cream Sauce with some Nutritional Yeast mixed in? I haven't tried this or anything but in my brain it sounds awesome. 

1/2 red onion, thinly sliced 
1/2 french baguette - about 6 slices, sliced thick
1 c 52 Garlic Clove Soup
4 kale leaves, sliced
1/2 c thinly sliced red cabbage
olive oil
  1. Heat up some olive oil on medium heat and get the onions cooking. When they start to soften they're done so remove them from the pan and set aside. 
  2. Dredge your thickly sliced french baguette in the leftover garlic soup. Make sure both sides are coated real good and gently lay down in the pan to fry. Get all the slices nice and golden brown on both sides. Once all slices are nice and golden brown, set aside.
  3. Using the same pan, saute up your kale and red cabbage until they're tender to your liking. 
  4. To assemble: I placed one piece of the garlic bread down and topped it with the kale and cabbage mix - another slice of bread - more kale and cabbage - another slice of bread - onions.


  1. I love savoury breakfasts way more than sweet breakfasts, and this is such a great idea! I can imagine how great it would taste with the flavour of that soup...definitely going to try this :D

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
