Servings 6 French Toast
- 1 cup milk (I used 2%)
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- ¼ teaspoon black salt
- 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 4 - 6 tablespoon butter
- 6 slices bread (thick slices, approx.1-inch)
- Confectioner’s sugar (powdered sugar), for dusting (optional)
- Pure maple syrup, for serving (optional)
- Fresh berries, for serving (optional)
Mix milk, cornstarch, cinnamon, sugar, black salt, nutritional yeast and vanilla in a shallow baking dish.
Dip bread in egg mixture, turning to coat both sides evenly.
Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Fry the bread slices until golden brown, 3 - 4 minutes per side. Wipe skillet, and repeat with remaining butter, and bread.
Dust with confectioner’s sugar, if desired, and serve warm with pure maple syrup and fresh berries.
MAKE AHEAD: Make and fried French toast as directed in the recipe. Let them cool completely. Wrap fried toasts with aluminum foil and refrigerate up to 3 days. When ready to serve, preheat oven to 350º F. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and place the French toast on the rack; bake for 10 -15 minutes, until heated through.
STORE: Since this recipe does not has eggs, they last a little more than the traditional egg version. To store French toast let them cool completely, then wrap them with aluminum foil to keep moisture. Refrigerate up to 3 days or freeze for 2 months.
FREEZE: To freeze French toast let them cool completely, then wrap them with aluminum foil to keep moisture. I like to wrap them individually so I can pull out just heat I want to reheat at a time. Transfer wrapped toasts to a resealable freezer bag. Freeze for 2 months.
REHEAT: Frozen French toast can be reheated directly from the freezer. OVEN: Preheat oven to a 350°F. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and place the frozen French toast on the rack; place in oven bake in a 350°F for 10 – 15 minutes, flipping once about halfway through baking. MICROWAVE: Reheat the French toast for 2 minutes on high, but they will not be as crisp coming out of the microwave as they would from the oven.
WHAT IS BLACK SALT OR KALA NAMAK?
Black salt or kala namak is a type of rock salt, a salty and pungent-smelling condiment used in South Asia. Although it is called black salt, its color is not black, it has a purple-ish to pink-ish color. Due to its sulfur content, it tastes and smells as hard-boiled egg yolks. This salt is used in many vegan/eggless recipes to mimic the flavor of the eggs. Keep in mind, Black salt or kala namak is salt so use it with moderation. I only use it to add the "eggy" taste to some eggless recipe, not as a salt substitute.
WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL YEAST?
Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast that comes in the form of flakes or as a yellow powder and can be found in most natural food stores. Due to its strong flavor, that is described as nutty, cheesy, or creamy, the nutritional yeast is often used an ingredient in cheese substitutes. It is often used by vegans in place of cheese.
In this recipe the nutritional yeast will add a rich touch of flavor, that mixed with the Black salt or kala namak will make the perfect combination to substitute the eggs, resulting in the most AMAZING Eggless French Toast ever!
