Last weekend I helped Lisa from Lisa goes Vegan with the shoot for her upcoming book. I basically helped prepare all (or most of) the recipes. So I was cooking the whole weekend. I think it inspired me to make something of my own.
For some reason I felt like eating french toast. I haven’t had french toast in about a year I think and I’ve also never made it myself.
I seem to have a slight intolerance to lactose and if you want to make French Toast that might be a little difficult. But instead of milk I like to drink soy milk or almond milk. And then I mean the unsweetened version. I think you can make this with both but today I choose soy milk, also because I did not have anything else haha oops.
(Fun fact: in Holland we call them Wentelteefjes)
Okay, so first things first, what you need:
– 1 egg
– 1 cup of soy milk
– a few slices of (old) bread
– olive oil
I say old bread here because it just works better. I used my bread that I have in the freezer.
Now, lets do this!
Step 1: Get a soup plate or a mixing bowl (what I used). Crack the egg and pour in the milk and whish whisk whisk.
Step 2: Get a frying pan, preferably with a non-sticking coat, and pour in 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
Step 3: Put your slice of bread in the bowl and let is soak in the milk/egg mixture for a few seconds before putting it in the pan.
Step 4: Make sure your toast is golden brown and cooked on both sides.
And that’s it! Just continue with the rest of your bread and you will have lovely french toast. I prefer to use the cinnamon at the end because while baking the flavor can turn bitter.
I only made two because it was just me that was eating them, but you can make as many as you like! If you are making for a group of people, just multiply the ingredients and you are good to go!
You can, of course, just eat them the way they are, but you can also top them with strawberry’s, maybe a little bit sugar (less healthy but so yummy), anything you want.
