Sourdough French Toast?

Before you say eww, or what the heck...give it a minute to sink into your brain....french toast made with sourdough bread!

The only reason I know that sourdough makes great french toast is because I am poor and the sourdough was on sale almost 2$ cheaper than other loaves of bread.  We were weary at first, but now I am hooked and its my go to lazy dinner, usually showing up on Sunday evenings.

Super simple, get yourself a loaf of sourdough bread, if its a little stale thats fine because you want it a bit hard.  If it isnt stale put it in your toaster oven (however many slices you want to make) on 350 degrees for a few minutes to harden up the bread.  Dont toast it, but harden it.

Your dipping mixture is as follows:

1 c. your choice of non dairy milk- coconut milk is great for this recipe since its a bit thicker
2 Tblsp. organic flour or other thickener
2 Tblsp. garbanzo flour
cinnamon to taste

Use a wide shallow dish (think of a dish that you can easily dip your breads in) and whisk the milk and organic flour together...then add in the garbanzo bean flour and mix.  If you love cinnamon mix it in there, its good for you and tastes super sexy.  Heat up a frying pan with the bottom coated in oil, on medium heat.  Dip each piece of bread in your mixture, making sure to soak on each side briefly then place in the frying pan.  A couple minutes on first side, then flip and brown the other side.  Serve with local organic maple syrup, powdered sugar, fresh fruit, jam...whatever you like on your french toast.  It is delicious and just typing this is making me want more, even though it was my dinner last night!

Enjoy!
