Amazing blog, guys!
My vegan friends over here in Brazil just love it!
It's a shame that over here we don't have the same variety of vegan ingredients, such as Daya, Vegenaise and nutritional yeast =(

Yum - I need to make this for myself since my boyfriend hates orange flavored stuff. Odd huh?

I made this with some stale homemade lemon poppy seed bread. Sooo good!

Sammy said...

ooo I wish I could make these for breatkfast tomorrow!!! I just drank the last of my soy milk a few minutes ago though sadly! :/

ITD said...

but I have so many different sized glasses, which one should I use?

The Vegan Stoner said...

Use any size glass depending on how much you intend to make, just make sure to use the same one for all measurements.

I convinced my non-vegan friend to have a vegan cook off... I made this and she made the vegan rice pudding. It was the best (maybe not healthiest :)) vegan meal I have had in my two years of being one! THANKS!!!

You people are crazy, this recipe doesn't work, french toast has egg for a reason...soy milk does not solidify at any temperature! I am all for vegan cooking, however this has clearly never been cooked by anyone every...it tastes like bread covered in soy milk.

Hi anonymous,

We're sorry if the recipe didn't work for you, it could just be personal taste.

We suggest either using more stale bread (it soaks up more liquid) or add a bit of cornstarch or banana to the juice mix to get that gooey outer texture.

Made it tonight for dinner! DELICIOUS.

Sunny said...

I made this tonight for dinner, and no kidding, it was the BEST French toast I've ever had. I love French toast, it has been my favorite food my whole life. In fact, since becoming vegan five years ago, I went through stages where I would eat eggs because I missed them so much.... (Never again! I know better now..) Anyway, my husband, toddler and I devoured it so I have to make more after the little one goes to bed. I'm addicted!

Turned out great, thanks! Toddler approved recipe, so this is a definite keeper.

Boonie ME said...

Made thins today and we've got a new favorite here! Sooo good!

Mary Marshall said...

The first piece I tried to make was too gooey- I think it soaked up too much of the juice. So for the second piece I toasted it first to "harden" the outside a bit so it wouldn't soak up so much juice. It worked much better! But burnt a bit- so I'll try turning down the temp next time.

We made this for breakfast and loved it! Even my 2 year old son (who is not vegan) enjoyed it. We used almond milk instead of soy, and omitted the powdered sugar b/c we were out. It took a long time to cook to the right consistency, and some of the bread fell apart a little, but it was no big deal. It still tasted delicious. We served it with pure maple syrup and chopped banana. Thanks for another great recipe!

I have been looking for a soy-free vegan French toast FOREVER. I'm so excited to try this!

Robyn Nystrom said...

couldn't seem to make them without them getting super soggy :( help!

The Vegan Stoner said...

Hi Anonymous! Sorry it took so long to respond. We didn't have orange juice in the house for a couple weeks.

We remade this recipe and thought of several ideas to keep the bread from getting too soggy:

For one, try cooking the juice-soaked bread in the pan a little longer. We waited until it turned a tiny bit black, flipped it, then took it out.

You might also be able to adjust by dipping the bread just once, rather than completely submerging it in Step 4. You might also try heating the bread in the pan withOUT dipping it — much like a grilled cheese sandwich — then drizzling the juice mixture on top (just enough for flavor).

We admit that we might have a soggy bias, since we sort of like our French toast this way. But using one or more of these ideas, we bet that you'll get the sort of French toast that you like.

Cheers —The Vegan Stoners
