Easy Savory French Toast. That's All For Today!

Today is Superbowl! However, the excitement and all that it carries along with it, is indeed omitted on me. In spite of that, I support all the peeps that support the Superbowl and all its glory.

I have a paper due this week, and I am trying desperately not to leave it for the last minute. Will I succeed? I shudder considering prior evidence…

Anyhow, I leave you with this recipe, and hope this Sunday exceeds your expectations. Think small!


Savory French Toast
Savory French Toast 

4-6 slices bread of choice (I used Ezekiel bread)
*Can be made gluten-free if using gluten-free bread. 
1/2 cup chickpea flour
1 cup unsweetened plant milk of choice (I used almond milk)
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon, or less, Himalayan pink salt (any kind of salt will do)
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
Freshly ground black pepper to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon)

Non-stick cooking spray for frying.

*You can also add 1-2 tablespoons herbs of choice (dried or fresh) to the batter.

Preheat a large non-stick cooking pan over a medium heat, and generously coat it with non-stick cooking spray. Use oil or vegan butter for a richer flavor.

Prepare the batter. In a large bowl, whisk together all the batter ingredients.

This is what the batter looks like. 
By now the pan should be warm. Place each slice of bread in the batter, coat on both sides. I like to soak the bread slices on each side for a few seconds to ensure good absorption and ultimate flavor.

Fry each toast, two at a time, on each side for about 4-5 minutes until crispy. The batter should not be raw when turning the toast. You will know what raw looks like when you encounter it.

If you decide on using less bread, and have extra batter remaining, pour some more over the frying bread. Serve right away.

Great with vegan butter! 

Tastes great with fruit preserves. Eat!
