Low-Fat and Versatile

Silken tofu quickly takes on a yogurt-like consistency when treated this way. It’s a very versatile ingredient. This low-fat preparation loses none of the rich flavor of classic French toast, and would be a welcome addition to any breakfast or brunch table topped with pear and date sauce or fruit salsa. (French toast, by the way, isn’t actually French, but has been written about in one form or another since Imperial Rome.)
