French Toast (sans Bananas)

What you need: 

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

What you do: 

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 howe'ver you like. The last time I made this, my dad and sister (both meat and dairy eaters) couldnt tell that it wasn't real French toast. Maybe they were just humoring me...but you'll tell me the truth, won't you?

Hello, my name is Miss faith, I'm from USA. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is genuine and real. I never really believed in any of these things but when I was losing Garvin, I needed help and somewhere to turn badly. I found consultant.odia spells and i ordered a LOVE SPELL. Several days later, my phone rang. Garvin was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not only come back, the spell caster opened him up to how much I loved and needed him. Spell Casting isn't brainwashing, but they opened his eyes to how much we have to share together. I recommend anyone who is in my old situation to try it. It will bring you a wonderful surprises as well as your lover back to you. The way things were meant to be." you can contact the spell caster on http://ogbonispeli.webs.com/ he's very nice and great.

Made this for my vegan girlfriend this morning! I (being an egg and milk fan) LOVED it! So tasty. I'm willing to bet your Dad and sister were kidding when they said they couldn't taste the difference! The only changes I made were 2x vanilla extract and almond milk.Thanks for the recipe.

i made this today with almond milk and used sprouted grain bread, since it is the only kind i eat. it was good. i like that you can explore flavors beyond what french toast usually is. the only thing i can say in the way of critique is that it takes a fair time to cook, about 4 minutes per side. but it is a great recipe which i will make many times. thanks for this.

I was skeptical about using the tahini but it was so good, way better than eggy french toast. I made it for 3 omnis who all gave rave reviews. I can't want to make this again! Thanks for posting ;)b

Hey, Earthbum,

Delicious! the only tweak i made was using almond milk instead of soy, everything else i followed to the word.
i threw some orange slices on the side and the kids gobbled it up! great recipe, thanx for sharing.

I also used almond milk and it turned out fantastic!

Good Morning Veggie Friends!!! I made this for breakfast this morning and it was a big hit with my 1, 2 and 3 year old boys. I used natural maple syrup and topped it with clementine slices. I am having trouble uploading photos though. Anyone else having that issue?

Thank you SOO much!! This is the first time in 3 years I've used a successful vegan french toast recipe at home! I used a regular loaf of sliced bread, subbed almond milk (infinitely better than soy if you don't have a nut allergy... mmm) and used peanut butter instead of tahini, like some other reviewers. I also used all 3 T of flour because I used less peanut butter... Only recipe I've ever used (from websites, veg cook books, whatever) that cooked evenly & crisped all-over. Thank you! Thank you!  :)>>>  I saved some left over batter for effortless french toast tomorrow too.. I might add in a tsp or 2 of nutri. yeast for some of that "eggyness." Anyway, I can't WAIT to make this for my vegan girlfriend.  ;)b
