Lemongrass Bostock Toast
toast that has been soaked in orange syrup and baked with frangipane, an almond cream.
Here, I added lemongrass for a subtle hint of soothing-ness and more toppings apart from toasted almonds. Pomegranate arils, almond butter, toasted almonds on almond cream. Am I going nuts?
2 slices bread An orange 1/2 c water 2 tbsp maple syrup 1 tsp lemongrass leaves -
Peel the orange into segments
Bring water to a boil and add maple syrup, orange segments, and lemongrass.
Soak bread in this mixture.
2 tbsp almond meal 1/4 c yogurt 1 tsp maple syrup pinch of salt -
mix and slather on bread
Bake at 170c for 20 minutes.
Sprinkle on 2 tsp silvered almonds at the 15th minutes mark, if you wish.
Adding pomegranate arils would hardly be a bad idea.
Serve warm and enjoy.
