Savory French Toast + Vegan Lemony Hollandaise Sauce | Gluten Free, Dairy Free
Have you ever had SAVORY French Toast? I thought about this the other day and decided that it was on the menu in Krysten’s Kitchen. And now that it’s a thing, I have to say that it’s one of my new favorite breakfasts ever! Wow! Hubby definitely agrees!
I used BreadSRSLY Sourdough, and we love it so much because it’s a gluten free, vegan and made in my hometown of San Francisco! They have 3 different flavors: Original, Seeded and my most favorite Sweet Onion. Their bread is also dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free, potato-free, sugar-free, tree nut-free, peanut-free, tapioca-free, and chickpea-free!
You could use any bread that you have on hand, but I highly recommend you check out this super yummy bread from BreadSRSLY (You can use code KrystensKitchen at check-out and order it online! They ship!)
For the hollandaise, I am a big fan of the original kind, too, but I don’t do a lot of dairy, to be honest. So while I have nothing against the original version of this sauce, I wanted to remake it in a dairy-free version using cashew as the base.
You can tweak this hollandaise sauce to not be so lemony, add more dijon or more garlic... though we personally do love a good lemony hollandaise sauce sometimes what is too lemony for you may be the perfect "lemon level" for us. Obviously, it’s got to be up to you and your taste buds. I love that you can whip it all up in the blender pretty quickly and pour over eggs, veggies or, you know — this savory French toast!

While cashews are soaking, add all other Hollandaise ingredients to blender. Strain and rinse soaked cashews and place in blender with other ingredients and blend until creamy. Set aside.
