For French Toast

Ingredients:

  • 2 big thicker slices of at least 1-day old sourdough (the recipe used the one containing seeds and raisins)
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 bag of our Organic Indian Masala Spice Chai Tea
  • 3 tbsp chickpea flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 heaping tbsp raw cashews, soaked overnight in filtered water, then rinsed and drained
  • A pinch of our Himalayan Pink Salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp of our Organic Chai Masala Mulling Tea Spice Mix
  • A pinch of nutritional yeast - optional
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, for cooking

How to make:

  • Steep the Tea Bag in hot water for 5 minutes. Discard the bag, let it cool and blend with other ingredients (except bread and coconut oil) in a high-speed blender until completely smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into a shallow bowl. Dip bread slices (one at a time) in the mixture for about 10 seconds on each side.
  • Meanwhile, heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add coconut oil, let it melt and heat.
  • Add two slices of bread coated in the blended mixture. Fry on each side for about 3-4 minutes until the bread is golden and crispy. Take extra care and don't make it soggy.

For Roasted Plums

  • 4 ripe plums, quartered
  • 1-2 tbsp honey/maple syrup

How to make:

  • Preheat oven to 190C/375F.
  • In a baking dish, combine the cut plums and honey. Roast them for about 20 minutes, mixing them twice during this time. They should be soft, sweet and lightly caramelized.
Serve them with the french toast.


Protip: We used vegan yogurt mixed with a splash of vanilla extract (use a thicker one, with a high content of fat like sour coconut cream, walnut butter, pistachios, cacao nibs, and more honey/maple, if desired, to add more flavor to this hearty recipe.
