Yesterday I finally perfected my recipe for a vegan french toast that isn’t just slimy bread!
I wanted it to include as few specialty ingredients as possible, but I can’t seem to replicate the eggy texture of french toast with and other egg substitutes than chickpea flour.
So without further ado, here’s my recipe!
makes 2 large slices of toast
- 1/3 cup of plant milk
- 2 large slices of bread (this is really good with sourdough)
- 4 teaspoons (1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon) chickpea flour
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- a pinch of ginger
- cinnamon to taste (i prefer a ton)
- a pinch of salt
- toppings (powdered sugar, walnuts, syrup, fruit, etc)
Very simple procedure: combine plant milk, chickpea flour, vanilla extract, and spices in a wide flat bowl. Mix well with a balloon whisk or fork. Preheat a large pan or griddle to medium heat. Once the pan is heated and greased (or nonstick), carefully saturate the bread in the milk mixture and move the bread immediately to the heated pan. Cook until each side i slightly darker than golden brown. Top with whatever you please!
listen, i’m one of the preachiest vegans you’ll ever meet but honestly the way the vegan twitter community has been yelling at Kalel for eating a few non vegan candy bars is just insufferable!
i think that the term vegan allows for space to make mistakes and space to interpret as needed. for example: i believe that sunscreen is topical medicine so if a vegan has no available cruelty free sunscreen in their area, it doesn’t make them not vegan to use animal tested sunscreen so as to prevent them from getting cancer.
i think this makes us look extremely dogmatic and unapproachable when we scold people for making mistakes. yes, technically Kalel isn’t vegan if she has a damn kitkat but does that invalidate the good she has done for animals by promoting and normalizing plant based diets?
I’m not going to lie and say i never slip up but does that undo the fact that in my lifetime i’ve inspired multiple friends to go vegetarian/vegan/reduce meat consumption/try tofu and lessen the amount of animal suffering there is on earth?
and does that mean freegan people don’t make a tangible difference in how peple view food waste if they happen to eat cheese out of the garbage?
i don’t think any of you should change your opinions, in fact i likely agree with you, but please don’t be so outwardly vitriolic.
