For over 2 years now I’ve posted my favorite meal from yesterday on Facebook and I thought the meal of the week should be posted here.
Last week was a tie…
I had the epiphany to eat my leftover guiltless French Toast with my apple butternut squash soup (topped with almond slivers).
The combination of the egg and the butternut squash was awesome. I used a baggette so my pieces were small enough for dipping into the soup (no syrup necessary!)
To make the French toast “guiltless” you use 6 egg whites, a tsp of vanilla, and 1/2 cup of orange juice (with a pinch of cinnamon) – no milk!
I cut 8 inch wide rounds of bread. Dip and soak them with the eggs and cook then like regular French toast. The recipe recommends pouring the leftover egg mixture over the bread while it cooks…and so do I.
The other favorite meal was something I ate at lunch and dinner- sautéed garlic tofu with canniloni beans, 2 diced garlic cloves, 6 cherry tomatoes, 6 fresh basil leaves, and a sprinkle of fresh pecorino Romano cheese (garlic salt and pepper to taste)
Um yeah, I had it with roasted potatoes then ate it again as a hot topping to fresh spinach with a little olive oil dressing.
I kind of wish I had it now. So maybe there isn’t a tie after all…
