Low GI Recipe of the Month

Sourdough French Toast with Peaches
Simply halve the quantities to make for two people. For just one serving you’ll only need 1 peach and 1 slice of bread, but you’ll still have to use 1 egg, 125 ml milk and 2 teaspoons of maple syrup and you’ll have a little mixture left over.

Serves 4
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 8 minutes

2 eggs
250 ml (10 fl oz) low fat milk
1 tablespoon pure 100% maple syrup
pinch nutmeg
olive oil spray
4 slices of wholemeal sourdough, each about 2 cm (3/4 in)
4 fresh peaches, sliced

1. Whisk the eggs, milk, maple syrup and nutmeg together in a shallow bowl. Lightly spray a non-stick frypan and heat over a medium heat.
2. Dip the bread in the egg mixture and turn to coat completely. Place the bread in the heated pan and cook for 2–3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Set aside and keep warm.
3. Spray the pan lightly again, and cook the peach slices for 1–2 minutes on each side, until just softened. Serve the French toast topped with the peaches.
