Vegan French Toast from Sazzy & Fran

Sazzy & Fran’s vegan French Toast recipe

Sazzy & Fran’s vegan French Toast is a cruelty-free and extra delicious version of the classic sweet breakfast toast. It is also the dish that cafe co-owner Sarah Harrison – the Sazzy in Sazzy and Fran – missed the most when taking the plunge to go totally meat and dairy-free. We can’t thank her enough for coming up with this vegan-friendly recipe.

For those who are not so familiar with this animal-friendly eatery on the Roman, everything in the Sazzy and Fran cafe is vegan and almost everything is made in-house. The only products made elsewhere are the pastries, which are made by a vegan bakery in Hackney.

Their Instagram is pure food porn, full of colour-saturated images of vegan tacos, lasagne, home-made burgers, smoothie bowls, cakes and fluffy pancakes. The 6600 followers prove that this cafe truly knows how to do plant-based food.

The recipe uses stale bread, a great way to reduce your food waste.

Ingredients

Slices of bread, you can use stale bread
1 ½  tsp ground chia seeds
2 T whole wheat flour
1 cup non-dairy milk, add slowly to avoid lumps
1 ½ T nutritional yeast
½ tsp vanilla
Cinnamon

Method

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl

Let sit for a few minutes

Dip bread in the mixture and fry, one by one, on a small amount of coconut oil (you can use normal oil too)
