Directions

  1. In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, ½ cup of the yogurt and the milk. If mixture looks too thick, add a few tablespoons of additional milk. Soak slices of bread in egg mixture one at a time, about a minute on each side, until bread becomes fully saturated. (See Ann''s Tips)
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together remaining yogurt, tahini and honey and set aside.
  3. Place a griddle or nonstick sauté pan over medium heat and add vegetable oil. Working in batches, cook each slice of bread for about 2 to 4 minutes per side, until golden brown.
  4. Serve each portion of French toast drizzled with the reserved tahini sauce.

Chef Tips

If you like vanilla yogurt, don’t buy store bought. It can have upwards of 6 teaspoons of sugar per serving. Either try our recipe, or simply beat  1/4 teaspoon of vanilla essence and 2 teaspoons of sugar (for that sweet tooth) into the the 3/4 cup plain yogurt before using. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how good it is.

In step 1, I find it easier to put the bread slices into a baking dish and pour the egg mixture over them and turn them until all the liquid’s been soaked up.
