French Toast (sans Bananas)


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 3 tablespoon tahini
  • 3/4 cup soy/rice milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegan maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2-3 tablespoon flour
  • cinnamon and nutmeg
  • stale vegan french bread or THICKLY CUT stale sandwich bread
  • a little oil


I haven’t made this since I’ve been home from college, but
as I read through the other French Toast recipes, I noticed
that an allergy to bananas was saddening breakfast for
some. I personally hate bananas, so this is my version.
I’ve experimented with it a lot, so I’d appreciate feedback.

With a whisk or a fork mix the tahini (I use Joyva brand
because it is very finely ground) and the soy milk until
you have some smooth nutty milk. If both are pretty cold
from the fridge, this could take some time. Listen to your
favorite song. It helps, I swear.

Add the maple syrup and vanilla. Add the flour a
tablespoon at a time. You may not need all three,
depending on how thick your tahini was. The consistency
you’re looking for is almost like pancake batter–runny
pancake batter. Add cinnamon and nutmeg to taste (and you
CAN taste it because unlike regular french toast, there are
no raw eggs to make you gag!). Use day-old vegan french bread
sliced at least 1/2″ thick. The thicker the vegan bread, the
longer you let it sit in the goo. This is why stale vegan bread
is good, you can soak the vegan bread without making it soggy.
I’ve tried it with thickly cut homemade wheat vegan bread, and it
was good, but it was kind of limp in that sad, not-so-
fresh, sort of way.

On medium heat in a good non-stick pan pour a nickle-sized
drop of oil and coat the pan. I’m an olive oil freak, so
that’s what I use. Put your vegan bread slices in and fry on
both sides for 3-5 minutes. If the heat is too high, the
coating will burn and the inside will be wet, so adjust the
heat as you go. You may need to add a little extra oil now
and then.

Then eat it however you like. The last time I made this,
my dad and sister (both meat and dairy eaters) couldn’t
tell that it wasn’t “real” French toast. Maybe they were
just humoring me…but you’ll tell me the truth, won’t you?

Preparation time: 15-20 minutes
