The title says it all. At a yard sale I found a copy of La Dolce Vegan, How it all Vegan, The Garden of Vegan, and Skinny Bitch in the Kitch. Anyone of those books would sold for 20 bucks new, but I got all four for eight bucks total. And they are as close to brand spanking new as you get. No stained, or dog eared pages here. Burn with envy all of you. And then you could recommend some recipes for me.


Eggs started to disgust long before I decided to go vegan. One time while making eggs my mom discovered a half formed chicken fetus in one of the eggs. Eww…. Then while I was living with my friends in New London, one of their friends brought over “farm fresh” eggs. They looked like misshapen brown ping pong balls and hadn’t been cleaned well. Cracking open one of these nasties, you discovered that it was 5/6 yolk and in lieu of egg white there was a little blood in it. So given my history with eggs it was not hard to give them up.
Most of the vegan French toast recipes I found on the internet require silken tofu or chickpea flour. I don’t think I can find chickpea flour around here and while I can get silken tofu we haven’t gotten in the habit of keeping it in the fridge 24/7.
French Toast
1 cup of vanilla soymilk
2 tablespoons of flour
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Cinnamon to taste
Thick cut bread pieces
Oil for frying
Heat oil in a skillet.
Mix together all ingredients except bread and oil. Dip bread pieces in the mixture. Don’t soak them just a quick dip. Fry for a few minutes on each side or until brown.

I was surprised how well this recipe turned out. While it was not “eggy” tasting it was crunchy and delicious.
Fun fact: ever wonder if French toast was actually French? It is. Known as pain perdu (the lost bread) it is made to salvage bread that would have otherwise been thrown away and is served as a dessert.
