Alternative recipe for Xmas golden slices (or French toast) in a vegan version, healthier, without milk or eggs. Served with vegetable yogurt, walnuts and maple syrup. Simply delicious.
- 4 to 5 slices hard bread
- 2 to 3 tbsps. coconut oil or olive oil to sauté the slices
Batter for the golden slices
- 1 + ½ cup of vegetable milk I used oatmeal
- 1 to 2 tbsp. cornstarch or arrowroot flour
- 2 tbsp. maple syrup or other sweetener
- 1 cinnamon stick powder
- 2 lemon peels
- ¼ tsp powdered ginger
- ¼ tsp. powdered turmeric
- 2 tbsp. cinnamon powder
- 2 tbsp. coconut sugar or other
- vegetable yogurt to taste
- nuts to taste
- 1 to 2 tbsp. maple syrup or other
- Start by dissolving the cornstarch very well with the vegetable milk.
- In a pan, add the mixture of starch and milk, maple syrup, cinnamon stick, turmeric and ginger and lemon peel. It wraps well.
- Over medium low heat, heat this mixture until the vegetable drink starts to thicken.
- When it thickens, we turn off the heat and let it cool. It will have a consistency similar to cream. Note: it is important to let it cool before wrapping the bread so that it does not fall apart
- We wrap the bread slices in the cream, ensuring that the entire surface of the bread is well covered.
- Repeat the process for the remaining slices.
- Heat a non-stick skillet with coconut oil and when hot, add the bread slices.
- Cover the pan while the slices are cooking.
- When browned (about 2 to 4 minutes), turn the bread slices over and let it brown for another 2 to 4 minutes. Or even start creating a layer that is browned around the edges.
- In a plate mix the cinnamon and sugar (from the topping).
- Wrap the bread slices in cinnamon and sugar.
- Serve the browned slices with vegetable yogurt, walnuts and maple syrup.
- If you have leftover cream to wrap on bread, you can keep this mixture in the fridge for up to 5 days. As it has cornstarch, it is normal to gain more consistency, but the process will work on the remaining days, just mix it in the bread.
- As the slices are not fried, they will not be crispy, however the cream layer adds flavor and a delicious texture to the bread.
