Add sugar, salt, turmeric, and lemon Juice.
Add the poha
Add half a cup of water
Cook till the water dries out.

Vegan French Toast 😍😍 So this is a breakthrough and I loved it. I've been using 1 tbsp coconut yoghurt + 1 tsp cornflour + 1/2 tsp baking soda for an egg substitute for a few months and after this I have to say I'm pretty convinced it's the bomb. This just tastes the same as normal French toast. I might make a savoury version soon too... spinach and vegan ricotta anyone? ;) THE STATS
Approximate cost to buy everything: $12
Will serve: 1 person - multiply ingredients to make as much as you want
Time taken: 20 minutes from setup to table
The protein, iron and calcium I'm not getting from meat? A little bit, actually! I used a really calcium-rich almond milk for this which was great, and you can easily pop some protein powder in if you want.
2 thick slices of good-quality bread
2 tbsp coconut yoghurt mixed with 2 tsp cornflour and 1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup plant milk (I used almond)
1 tsp vanilla essence or vanilla bean paste
1 tbsp caster sugar
6 or so strawberries, hulled and halved
1 tbsp caster sugar
2 tbsp water
Dairy-free ice cream (I used @sogoodau)
Drizzle maple syrup
Combine all wet toast ingredients together and stir until smooth. Dip pieces of bread in to submerge, leave until very wet, then set aside.
In a small saucepan, combine all coulis ingredients. Bring to the boil then remove from heat and mash the strawberries to form a thin sauce. Set aside.
Heat some oil in a frying pan over high heat. Add soaked bread then reduce heat to medium-high. Fry for 5 minutes, flipping occasionally, until golden.
Serve toast drizzled with coulis and maple syrup, topped with ice cream, strawberries, mint and almonds. Yum 😀
Eid dinner for two: ras al hanout drumsticks over mushroom couscous, fried eggplant and carrot with honey red wine vinegar, and mint, and a yogurt-feta and dill dip with gorgeous farmers market radishes. #cookingforganbi
