Yield: About 6 slices
* 1 cup Soymilk (other non-dairy milk may be used)
* 2 Tbsp. Flour
* 1 tsp. Sugar
* 1 Tbsp. Nutritional yeast flakes
* 1/2 tsp. salt
* Sliced bread (about 6 slices)
Mix together all ingredients except bread. Dip slices of bread into the mixture to coat well. Heat a skillet and fry until golden brown and crispy on both sides. (Use a nonstick pan and cooking spray to make them fat-free.) Serve hot with cinnamon or maple syrup.
NOTES: You can play with the proportions a little. This is the basic recipe I started out using many years ago, but since then I kind of “wing it” and probably use more nutritional yeast than flour. (Of course, I now am used to nut. yeast, so I really like the flavor.) I also just noticed that the recipe doesn’t call for any vanilla or other extracts, and I usually use some–mostly vanilla, but I’ve made some more fancy French toast using coconut, pecan, or rum extracts.
