This is as close as you will get to the real deal. I have given the basic recipe for the French toast and included the rhubarb which was roasted with vanilla, orange and star anise.
Don' use thin sliced bread for this, I find the best bread is a day old loaf cut into think 1 inch slices, sourdough being my favourite.
You can add any toppings to this recipe, fresh berries, fruit sauces, a drizzle of chocolate and one of my favourites, blueberry, pecan and maple syrup.
400g rhubarb cut into 2 inch pieces
3-4 tbs syrup of choice maple/rice/agave
zest of and juice of half an orange
2-3 star anise
1 vanilla pod split
4-6 thick slices bread slightly stale
3/4 cup gram flour
1 cup plant based milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp. maple syrup
A little coconut oil for the pan.
Coconut or other plant yogurt
Maple syrup or stem ginger syrup
roughly chopped pistachio nuts
