Description

A vegetarian savory french toast recipe made with sourdough bread, red pepper hummus, feta cheese, and sautéed spinach. A meal fit for breakfast, brunch, or dinner!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 slices sourdough bread
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup Sabra roasted red pepper hummus
  • 2 tablespoons feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup sliced roasted red peppers
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons water

Instructions

  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add oil, and cook garlic for 30 seconds.
  3. Add spinach and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until wilted.
  4. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  5. Spread hummus evenly on two slices of bread.
  6. Top with feta cheese, red pepper strips, and sautéed spinach.
  7. Top with remaining slices of bread, and press firmly to hold together.
  8. Heat skillet over medium-high heat, and spray with non-stick spray.
  9. In a shallow bowl, whisk together eggs and pepper.
  10. Dip both sides of each sandwich in egg mixture, and add to heated skillet.
  11. Cook on each side for 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown.
  12. Cut each in half and serve on plates.
  13. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water. Set aside.
  14. In a small saucepan, add balsamic vinegar and maple syrup.
  15. Cook over medium-low heat until mixture starts to bubble.
  16. Reduce heat to low, and add cornstarch mixture, stirring constantly until mixture thickens.
  17. Drizzle balsamic over prepared french toast before serving.

Notes

  • Make sure to really press the sandwiches together before dipping in the egg. It will help it hold together, and easier to flip.
  • I thickened the balsamic syrup with cornstarch instead of cooking it down. This is not only faster, but also uses a lot less balsamic vinegar than if you reduced it.
  • Use any of the over 12 Sabra hummus flavors to make this dish your own. The roasted red pepper flavor just happens to be my favorite.
