Vegan French Toast recipe
French Toast is one of the tastiest ways to use up any leftover bread that's starting to go stale and it's a surprisingly easy recipe to make a vegan version of as well! 

The French call it pain perdu which translates as the 'lost bread' and I've always enjoyed the challenge of using up a food item so that nothing goes to waste. Food waste is a massive problem here in the UK so as part of the ongoing Love Food Hate Waste awareness campaign, I wanted to share this quick and easy recipe for how you can make some delicious Vegan French Toast.

For this recipe, you'll need some stale thick bread (fresh bread is too soft and just falls apart, so the older it is, the better!) and a couple of vegan-friendly storecupboard ingredients. I've tried to focus on the kind of ingredients that I know most of my vegan and plant-based friends usually have at home, though I understand it may be difficult to source them at the supermarket at the moment, so feel free to save this page for another day in the future if that's the case.

I really love this vegan version of French Toast and highly recommend it to anyone to try, vegan or not, I'm sure you'll love it!

Vegan French Toast recipe
Ingredients (serves 2)
  • Two slices of thick-cut, old Bread (Sourdough is the best IMO)
  • 200ml Almond or Soy Milk
  • 1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/2 tsp Cornflour
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • Coconut Oil, for frying
  • Fresh Berries, for serving (optional)


  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix all the ingredients together, except for the Bread and Coconut Oil, and let it stand for a few minutes to thicken slightly.
  • Dunk the Bread into the wet mixture and allow to soak for 2-3 minutes, turning it over to ensure every inch gets a good coating.
  • Place a frying pan over a medium heat and add a little Coconut Oil. Carefully add the soaked Bread to the pan and fry for a few minutes on each side, until you get a nice golden brown colour overall.
  • Transfer the French Toast to plates and top with your favourite Fresh Berries. Add an extra drizzle of Maple Syrup if you want some more sweetness - enjoy!
