Vegan French Toasts or Deconstructed Pistachio Spread Sandwich? Either way you want to named this dish, it is extremely DELICIOUS! This french toasts are very soft and juicy and a little bit crunchy in the outside. I soaked them on coconut milk with coconut flour and flax seeds. The coconut flour made the outside crunch layer and the flax seeds make the mixture egg-like texture. I mix them with coconut milk and a splash of vanilla and of course my favorite spices (cinnamon, turmeric, ginger) and a pinch of salt. Every time I make french toasts, I pinch the bread with a fork so the liquid will get into it easily and they will be juicer (that’s my trick).
I ate this glorious french toasts with a Pistachio Spread Sauce, kiwi and papaya.
