SF1: Black sesame french toast

Starting a new food mini-series today: SF or Sofa Food :)

I guess everyone kinda knows what Sofa Food is in their own way - could be breakfast, a mid-afternoon snack, a late supper, or even a lazy i'm-gonna-eat-junk dinner. Regardless of when you have it, it's simple but yummy food that's best eaten in front of the TV and preferably with one hand. It also requires minimal preparation and cleanup, since that would only distract you from the telly.

Got home from Japanese class last night tired, hungry and with a craving for black sesame. Since it was too late to run out and buy tang yuan (I definitely wasn't up to trying to make them!) this was what I managed to whip up, courtesy of my bottle of black sesame paste (from the black sesame french beans dinner) and my not-so-friendly neighbourhood Econ Mini-mart:

Black sesame french toast

Makes 6 fingers

  • 2 slices white bread
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Black sesame paste (available in bottle form from most Japanese supermarkets)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Lightly toast one side of each slice to make spreading the black sesame paste easier. Spread toasted side with generous amounts of black sesame paste (think nutella, not vegemite). Sprinkle one side with sugar, 1 teaspoon or to taste. Sandwich slices together and cut into fingers. Dip into beaten egg and fry till golden brown (or the way I like it best, golden burnt!). Serve with a glass of soybean milk. Eat immediately with one hand. Use other hand for changing channels on the remote control.
