Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp cumin powder
  • 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper powder
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp dried chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp salt or as per taste
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened dairy free milk
  • 6 slices of bread ( regular/whole grain/sprouted grain/GF)

Toppings

  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp chopped jalapeno pepper

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl combine chickpea flour,
    almond flour, nutritional yeast, cumin powder, basil, parsley, oregano, garlic,
    and salt. Mix it very well.
  • Now, whisk in water and milk and make a smooth,
    thick yet runny batter so that the bread slices  can hold it.
  • Now, warm a skillet on the stove top and grease
    it with cooking oil or cooking spray.
  • In the meanwhile, mix the ingredients for
    toppings in another mixing bowl and keep it aside.
  • Now, dip the bread in the batter and place it on
    the warm skillet. Top it with 1-2 tbsp of toppings and cook for 3-5 minutes or
    until the bottom starts to cook and batter starts to dry up. Gently flip the
    bread to the other side with the help of the spatula. Make sure the toppings
    are still sticking to the bread. Press the bread from the center with the
    spatula towards the skillet so that the toppings are ingrained in the French
    toast and they do not fall off. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown in
    color.
  • Repeat the above step for the rest of the
    batter and the bread.
  • Serve it immediately hot with ketchup or
    sriracha sauce on the side.

Notes

  • You may use any bread of your choice. However, the nutritional fact may vary depending on the type of bread that you use.
  • This recipe makes 6 French toast and the serving size is 1 per person.
  • If you are allergic to nuts then skip almond flour and make it with only chickpea flour by changing its measurement to 1 cup.
  • For crispier French toast just cook about 4 minutes extra on both sides at low-medium heat. But do not overcook.
  • Variation: This recipe can be oven baked. Follow until step 4. Preheat oven at 400-degree Fahrenheit and prepare the sheet pan or any baking sheet of your choice. (Greasing it is absolutely optional depending on your diet choice). Dip the bread into the batter and place the slices on the baking sheet. Pour the remaining batter on the bread slices and top them with the onion salad. Place the baking pan in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Take the baking sheet out of the pan and flip the bread slices to the other side with the help of the spatula. Make sure the toppings are sticking to the bread slices. Press them slightly from the center so it cooks well. Put back the baking sheet in the oven and bake it again for 15-20 minutes or until done. Serve immediately.
