- Serving: 4
Prepare Pistachio Syrup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread pistachios on a baking sheet and toast for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan over high heat, combine water, sugar, and vanilla bean. Bring to a boil. Add pistachios to syrup, reduce heat to low, and cook for one hour, stirring occasionally.
Allow syrup to cool. Puree and set aside.
For the French Toast
Whisk together eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract to form a batter.
Spread a tablespoon of paste over each slice of bread and top with an additional piece of bread. Dip sandwich in batter until soaked through.
Heat oil in a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add pieces of bread and cook on both sides until golden brown. Remove and allow to drain on paper towels.
For Banana Salsa
Combine the first four ingredients. Sprinkle bananas with chocolate zest and serve with pistachio French toast.
