Preheat oven to 400 F
Zest the orange, set zest aside.
Make the “batter”: In a blender, place the block of silken tofu, ¼ cup maple syrup, 3 tablespoons oil, 1 cup nut milk, ¼ cup of orange juice, 2 teaspoons vanilla, ½ teaspoon salt, 1 tsp cinnamon and ½ teaspoon nutmeg in the blender. ( see notes) Blend until smooth and creamy and tofu is fully incorporated.
Cut the bread into chunks, place in a large bowl and top with ½ of the orange zest. pour int he wet mixture, scraping down the sides of the blender, Toss well so all is nice coated. Toss in the strawberries and almonds. Place in a greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle a little orange zest over top. For added yumminess, grate fresh nutmeg over top.
Turn the top visible strawberries, so they are skin-side-up for pretty presentation. Cover with foil. If your dish is overly full, cover with parchment and then foil ( to prevent sticking). Bake 30 minutes.
French toast should looked slightly puffed. (If making with eggs and french toasted is not puffed yet, keep covered, baking another 15 minutes or until puffed.) Continue baking uncovered for 15 minutes, or until nicely golden.
Serve with maple syrup ( I like to drizzle a little more over the top) and powdered sugar.
