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!

Vegan Dumpster Colcannon

Happy Super Belated St. Patty’s Day! I actually started a draft of this post in March. And now it’s May. Awesome!

In honor of the holiday and since I dumpstered a beautiful head of cabbage I made some colcannon. Colcannon is a traditional Irish dish. It’s incredibly economical and simple as well as a tasty way to use up leftover mashed potatoes.

Ingredients:

  • potatoes (or leftover mashed potatoes)
  • cabbage (or kale)
  • soymilk
  • margarine
  • garlic, minced
  • s&p

If you’re not using leftover mashed potatoes then peel (if you want), dice, and boil potatoes until tender. Reserve the water from the potatoes to boil the cabbage with. Quarter the cabbage and slice into about 1″ thick slices. Mash the potatoes with the remaining ingredients while the cabbage boils. Mix in cabbage and adjust seasonings to taste.

You don’t really need exact measurements. Just start small and keep adding until, you know, it tastes good. Like I said, this is a really simple dish and pretty hard to mess up.

Variations:

  • Add vegan bacon, sausage, or cheese.
  • Roll into balls or make patties and fry. (Add flour if not thick enough.)
  • Put fried colcannon on bread or pita with favorite sandwich toppings.
  • Add veggie or mock chicken broth and soymilk to make a creamy soup.
