I believe that french toast is among the first things that will remind us of childhood breakfasts. How many slices did our parents and grandparents made for us? It was one of those simplest things in kitchen that we were helping with our little hands.
Now it’s all a bit different, but only a bit: there are no eggs and no dairy. But still, there are little hands to help me when making a soft, warm and golden slice to enjoy.
I’m not much of a breakfast person, but that certanly does not excuse me of making it for my family! Apart from actual eating, there is really something in making breakfast for your loved ones. If I’m up early enough, I’ll make yeast naan, bread or cornbread and on Sundays they just enjoy french toast.
French toast is often made and served in sweet version with fresh fruit or preserves. We kind of like it savoury and that’s why I make it this way. But you can certanly omit the salt and nutritional yeast, add some sweetener to your taste and serve it with some nice jam or something! It’ll be as much as delicious! Soy milk works as great too.
And this one is as simple as it can be. It’s made with just oat milk, salt, some nutritional yeast if you like cheesy flavour and a pinch of salt. And if you have some nice rustic sourdough bread on your hands… olala! It’s even better!
So here is how to make it:
500 ml/2 cups oat milk
2 tbsp rice flour
1 tsp nutritional yeast (optional)
pinch of salt
5 big slices of bread
little bit of oil
Whip up oat milk, rice flour, nutritional yeast and salt in a bowl so there are no lumps. Heat the oil in the frying pan, on medium heat. Immerse bread in oat milk, not soaking it too much. Fry the slices for min or two on each side till they are golden brown. Serve immediately with some nice salad, fresh veggies or like us, with homemade pickles 🙂
So what do you think? Is it inviting enough for you to try it? I would love to hear from you how do you make your french toast!
And if you like it, be sure to pin it for later!
