Vegan MoFo: Fronch Toast
The whining bit: I'm really struggling to photograph using the camera in my smart phone. It isn't spectacular, and I run out of space quickly so that I have to keep deleting shots. It's also been very dark by the time I get home to make food, so my dim kitchen lighting isn't helping.
I'm savin' up for a camera, but the Americorps wages don't really permit much in the way of that, and I'd rather save my money for Christmas gifts!
On to the food...
I have never had vegan French toast, but the recent purchase of a big wok made the boy think of crepes, French toast, and all the good things that can be made in woks. I pulled out the fabled Isa "Fronch toast" recipe and went at it...
But crap, I didn't have chickpea flour. I used soy flour instead. I think this was one of the things that would ultimately lead to my downfall.
But the toast... was bland. The texture was nearly right, but dang. Needed salt. Needed a more proteiny flavor. Maybe a fattier nondairy milk would have been better. But it needed lots of jam. Boy agreed. Crap. I had high hopes. Maybe it was the lack of chickpea flour. Argh.
