Vegan Dumpster French Toast

toast1

A lot of vegan french toast recipes use bananas, but I just don’t get it. When you use bananas it makes everything taste like… bananas. I want to taste french toast, so here’s what I do.

Ingredients:

  • dumpster bread, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • soymilk
  • margarine/oil
  • dumpster fruit, optional

In a bowl mix the flour and sugar together while whisking in the soymilk. Slowly add soymilk until you have a smooth, thin batter then stir in the vanilla. Heat the margarine in a pan. Dip a slice of bread in the batter, coating both sides, and fry on each side until golden brown. Serve with slices of dumpster fruit, a little powdered sugar, and maple syrup. This makes about 4 pieces of french toast so you can multiply the ingredients to your liking.

Delicious vegan french toast with no unwanted banana taste!

Red Curry

After dumpstering a ton of potatoes I wanted to do something other than just mashed, baked, or fried potatoes. What’s a girl to do? Curry!

My intention was to make Masaman Curry, but it turns out I only had a can of Thai red curry paste left. Well, red curry it is! Luckily we acquired about a dozen limes and a few bags of cherry tomatoes. We also dumpstered quite a few bunches of asparagus so I threw that in, but honestly I didn’t like the flavor of the asparagus in this curry. Looked pretty though . . .

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1-2 Tbsp red curry paste (make your own!)
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 4-5 potatoes
  • 10 or so cherry tomatoes (or 1 large tomato, or 2 roma)
  • 2 limes

Peel potatoes and dice into 1 inch cubes. Quarter cherry tomatoes. Heat oil in pan. Add curry paste and stir for 1 minute. Stir in remaining ingredients and squeeze in juice of limes. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding water if necessary.

If you have some, I would also add some chopped onion and/or tofu.

Serve on a bed of rice.
