Easy Vegan French Toast – No fuss, just lush

Vegan french toast means that the deliciously loveable rogue breakfast, French toast, is no longer just for egg-eaters and milk-drinkers.

A weekend favourite, French toast is a lovely soft-crunchy mix of cooked bread in a soppy sauce. It’s not easy to get it just right though – and that’s why we’re here.

Egg fries easily, and as a result it makes normal French toast easier than vegan French toast – at least to the untrained eye.

Easy like a Saturday morning

Luckily, vegan french toast can (and should) be just as simple as the regular kind. We’re going to use almond milk instead of cow milk.

And while egg does work wonders as a binder, we use a little flour instead. It helps thicken the almond milk and make everything a little more malleable.

Just like normal French toast, what we’re going for is a ‘creamy’ type of toast with a soft(ish) centre and a crispy outside.Easy Vegan French Toast – No fuss, just taste - Dave soaks the bread in the milk mix #sesame seeds #salt | hurrythefoodup.com Easy Vegan French Toast – No fuss, just taste - the bread is cooking on the pan #turmeric #oil | hurrythefoodup.com Easy Vegan French Toast – No fuss, just taste - Vegan French Toasts are ready #vegan margarine #bread | hurrythefoodup.com

Sweet or Savoury?

The flavour is relatively neutral – it really shines when mixed with other flavours.

That means you can use different toppings to get wildly different results.

Our favourite is a savoury french toast with avocado, tomato and basil, but a sweet version with cinnamon or vanilla is also delicious.

I’ll include both in the recipe below.

Dos and Don’ts of Vegan French Toast

There are few things to make sure you do to get perfect results every time.

DO

Remember to heat the pan first. Putting dipped bread into a cold pan for cooking just leaves a sloppy mess.

Dip the bread for long enough. The bread has to soak up the mixture. You can also squidge the bread down with your fingers and it’ll suck the milk up as it rises again.

DON’T

Use bread that is too thin. We don’t want the bread falling apart as we cook it. Bread that is a day or two old is ideal as well – it’s better to go a bit hard than soft 😉

Use too much vegan margarine or oil for frying. Just enough to wipe across the bottom of the pan is fine.

Remember these tips and you’ll be cooking up vibrant vegan french toast all weekend!

Instructions

  • Cut the bread into triangles.
  • Blend the milk, water, flour, half the sesame seeds, the salt, and turmeric together well.
  • Soak the bread in the milk mix in a wide bowl for about 30 seconds, pressing the bread down so it soaks up the mixture.
  • Meanwhile, heat up a pan on medium heat and add the oil/margarine.
  • Cook the bread until golden brown on both sides, roughly 3 minutes each side. If it needs longer, give it some extra so it’s nice and crispy.

Notes

Feel free to put your own spin on this recipe! Chopped baby tomatoes or mashed avocado, salt, lemon and a little oil. Garnish with basil. Hummus. Whatever your other fave toppings are!
For a sweeter version try 2 drops vanilla essence and 1 tsp cinnamon in place of the turmeric. Top with favourite sweet toppings – sugar and strawberries, for example!
You can swap the buckwheat flour for another type of flour – it just happens to be our favourite!
If you fancy eggy bread instead then head right over here.
