ah, savoury French toast or eggy bread! This easy to whip up savoury treat, sure brings back a lot of memories, my gran would always whip up some of these when I came over, my Mom and Dad suck in the cooking department, so time with my gran was some of the best moments ever. It revolved around actually eating food! We would always wear the same outfit, bake and cook the day away.
This egg free version brings back all those memories with a little bit more flavour. Now this is not the healthiest recipe ever, it is fried (worth it), but everything in moderation I say! So don’t feel bad for eating something decadent sometime, you only life once, right. (Yolo!).
This is a perfect treat for breakfast, brunch or brinner.
SAVOURY FRENCH TOAST – 6 slices
- 1 cup gram flour/ chickpea flour
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
- 1 tsp salt
- a good couple of grinds black pepper
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp green onions, chopped
- 6 slices day old bread
In a bowl combine the flour, water, turmeric, salt, pepper garlic powder and green onions. Mix until well combined.
Add a piece of bread to the batter and quickly soak on both sides. If you leave it in too long you will have a soggy mess.
Heat oil in a non stick pan on medium to high heat. Place two soaked bread pieces into the pan and cook until golden brown. you will see the edges starting to brown, flip and repeat.
Place the french toast on a paper towel to remove the excess oil.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve with tomato sauce or sriracha sauce. YUM!
