Toast for breakfast or a snack is so quick and easy. I am all about exotic and ethnic foods and trying new recipes. But sometimes I just want something familiar and simple that I can throw together in a few minutes. That’s why I love these vegan breakfast toasts. The number of toppings that can be added to toast is limitless. Be creative and invite the kids to make their own toasts too!
Gluten free bread is hard to find in a vegan friendly form, because almost all of them contain egg. Most varieties are hard as rocks, and simply not appetizing.
This is because gluten gives bread bounce and rise to breads, and allows for the encapsulation of air give light, airy, delicious bread. Ancient forms of wheat are easily digestible because it only contains the A genome of gluten. But, modern wheat has been crossed with 2 goat grasses. This introduced the D genome which now makes up about 5% of the entire genetic code. Bakers love the D genome because the glutens in this family bounce back quicker and provide a quick, high rise. But, these new genetics make modern wheat more difficult to digest.
My favorite brand of gluten free bread to use is Schar. It does have a bit of honey in it, but the taste is worth it and it is by far the cleanest and best version I have found.
