    cup Almond flour

    cup Nutritional yeast

    tsp Smoked Paprika

    tsp Black Pepper

Instructions

1
Preheat oven to 425F & line baking sheet with parchment paper (You can also use the air fryer at 395F)
2
Add all dry ingredients to a bowl for your bread crumbs, whisk together then separate mixture evenly into two bowls
3
Prepare your assembly line: sliced tomatoes, plant milk mixture, one bowl of bread crumbs, prepared baking sheet or oiled air fryer basket
4
Dip a tomato slice into the almond milk, covering both sides, then dip each side into the Bread Crumbs covering each side, then transfer to baking sheet
5
Bake for about 15 minutes (less for air frying, check at 10 min), the ropes should be gold. Flip and bake another 5 min or longer until the other side is gold
6
Assemble your Sammy: slice of bread, sauce, tomato slices, lettuce/other veggies & Bread. DONE! Enjoy.
7
Tips of the Week: Any leftover plant milk/bread crumbs can be mixed together for a batter that is excellent for cauliflower bites! Bake at same temps til crispy
8
Make your own easy, 5 min, cost efficient and chemical/additive free Oat Milk: Use a ratio of 1 C Rolled Oats: 4 C cold Filtered Water.
9
Add your Oats & Water to a high speed or reg blender with a pinch of sea salt. Blend on high for about 30-45 seconds, 1 min. for a reg blender.
10
Strain immediately through a nut milk bag. Store in jar or sealed container 3-5 days in fridge.
11
To avoid mushy oats / slimy oat milk, water must be cold & you need to work fast (no soaking), and do not use quick-cook or steel cut oats.
12
Separation is normal given there are no additives, give your jar a good shake to mix before using.
