Red Pepper Coulis:

  • cup vegetable broth

  • 3 tablespoons salted butter

  • 1 medium roasted red pepper, chopped

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

French Toast:

  • 2 large eggs

  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • 3 (1 inch thick) slices French bread

  • 1 teaspoon salted butter, or as needed

  • 2 ounces crumbled goat cheese

  • cup quartered grape tomatoes

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil


  1. Combine broth and butter for coulis in a saucepan over medium heat. Add red pepper and season with salt and pepper; simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly, about 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, whisk eggs and milk together in a large bowl. Add bread slices and soak until all liquids are uniformly absorbed.

  3. Pour cooled broth mixture into a food processor. Puree until coulis is smooth.

  4. Melt 1 teaspoon butter on a griddle over medium heat. Pan-fry French toast slices until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Cut each piece into triangles and divide evenly among 2 plates.

  5. Sprinkle with goat cheese, tomatoes, parsley, and basil. Drizzle with coulis. Serve immediately with remaining coulis on the side.

Cook's Notes:

You can use chicken broth instead of vegetable, and feta cheese instead of goat cheese.

Use your favorite savory bread, like tomato and basil, potato and rosemary, or Kalamata and olive.
