Basic French Toast (Soy-Free)


Gluten-free bread also works very well with this basic recipe.  Some brands of almond and rice milk do contain soy lecithin.  If this is a concern for you, be sure to check the label.  Also, if you use vanilla flavored milk alternative omit the vanilla extract.  Serve with a pat of dairy-free butter or some real maple syrup.


Yield: 6 slices of french toast


  • 6 thick slices bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup plain almond or rice milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon oil or dairy-free butter


  • Beat together egg, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and salt.
  • Heat oil or dairy-free butter in a skillet over medium-high flame.
  • Dunk each slice of bread in egg mixture, soaking both sides.
  • Place in pan, and cook on both sides until golden.
  • Serve warm with real maple syrup, dairy-free butter, or jam.
