An Ode To Toast: 4 Easy (But Drool-Worthy) Vegan Combos

140 comments

4toastrecipesvegan-9079

Just like smoothies, I make toast just about every day of the week in some form or other. It’s one of my favourite quick and easy lunches or snacks. It’s hard to beat the comforting, warm, and crunchy experience that toast provides in just a few minutes. Plus, the flavour possibilities are endless! I’ve always preferred an open-faced sandwich to the traditional kind because I can load on the toppings as much as I please and if it ever gets out of control I just eat it with a knife and fork. Fancy, right? Since we’ll soon be relying on our toaster quite a bit during our kitchen reno in August, I thought it would be nice to round up some of my favourite toast combos of late – two savoury and two sweet. Be sure to share your favourite toast combos (or dream combos) below!

For my chia seed jam recipe, see this post. Note: You can use any kind of fruit you prefer. Some large fruit pieces (like frozen mango or strawberries) will benefit from a gentle mashing near the middle of cooking.

Cheater’s Maple Baked Beans on Toast

This is a quick, high-protein meal that doesn’t require slow baking the beans for hours. Just 10 minutes on the stove top is all you need!

Serves 2

  • 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup diced sweet onion
  • 1 (15-ounce) can navy beans, drained and rinsed (or 1.5 cups cooked navy beans)
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon blackstrap molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon vegan Worcestershire sauce (this is the kind I use)
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt (I use 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon)
  • 1/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

 

1. In a medium pot or skillet, sauté the onion in the oil for 6-7 minutes over medium heat until soft and translucent.

2. Add the rest of ingredients, stir well to combine, and cook over low-medium heat for another 5 minutes or so. Adjust ingredients to taste if desired.

3. Serve over toast.

Note: The beauty of this recipe is that you can play around with the condiments and adjust them to taste. You might like yours on the sweeter side, tangier, etc. so feel free to use my recipe as a starting point.

I shared this beauty on Instagram the other day and it had a great response which is why I thought a toast round-up might be a nice change of pace! This combo is probably my most made toast ever…I just can’t get enough of it. Tip: I love the Kirkland brand of organic slow-roasted tomatoes found at Costco! They are totally dreamy on toast and in homemade pesto.

You need this one in your life. ‘Nough said.

Almond butter also pairs well with apricot jam. ;)
And cherry jam is awesome with pistachio butter, but obviously that’s harder to find. (I make my own, but I’ve seen it at Whole Foods too)

I’m with you! I think my love for toast came about when I started eating Ezekiel. It stays good a lot longer when you freeze it, so I was always popping slices int the toaster! My favorites are obviously banana and nut butter and avocado but I also really like a spread of hummus with some grilled veggies. So good!

Hahaha, the beans on toast reminded me of my great uncle, he’s from the south and says he doesn’t go a day without eating beans on brown bread – “poor man’s food”.

Lovely photos and a lovely blog. I must have been under a log for all of these years and only discovered your blog 5 months ago when I decided I wanted to start blogging. I must confess though that I wasn’t much of a blog reader before. You’ve done awesome work! Congrats on the book as well. Now on to toast…my favourite way to have it is with tahini and jam (apricot or strawberry are particularly tasty with tahini, but any flavour will do). Also love any form of nut butter on toast. I also steam the bread instead of toasting it sometimes. Dry toasted baked flour can be hard on the body and steaming it adds back the moisture :-) Ciao from Italia!

Hi there — Can anyone answer this: I have bags of almond meal, and I don’t have a good blender or FP. When a recipe, such as the nutty herb croutons, calls for 1 cup of almonds ground up, can someone tell me what the equivalent is for almond meal? In other words, does 1 cup almonds ground up = less than 1 cup almond meal or = more than 1 cup almond meal? I’ve been googling and found inconsistent answers! Thanks very much.

I am on such a hugh toast kick these days myself. I definitely am more of the sweet toast than a savoury toast type. Will definitely be trying out the elvis, it looks sooooo good!!

Ohhh I say YES to all of these!!!! Toast is pretty much the best–so versatile, crunchy, and yummy. :D I usually have it with nut butter, banana, chia seeds, and yogurt on top with cinnamon. Or the savory kind–melted cheese, hummus (sometimes deli meat, hehe), avocado, spinach, and SRIRAACHAAAAA

These look amazingly delicious! I make my own Ezekiel Bread (vegan recipe) every week and I’m always looking for new toppings. I can’t wait to try, so thank you for sharing. My recipe is on the blog if you’re interested.

My favourite sandwich is avocado + tomato sauce, and I LOVE hemp seeds, so I’m sure you made The Vegan Delight just for me ;)

And I think I’m going to try The Elvis with my recently-discovered pumpkin seed spread (yummo) and some of the best raw vegan chocolate in the world (Pana Chocolate).

So much good food to enjoy, thank you. I’m drooling already :D

I LOVE toast! I am so glad to see a blogger who has no fear of bread! In Spain (where I come from) bread is a basic ingredient in most of our meals. I usually like to keep it simple and eat toast with olive oil and salt. I also love to add some natural juicy tomato, olive oil, salt and pepper. Another combination that I love is butter and sugar or white wine and sugar (yes! wine, it is an old tradition and totally reminds me of my grandfather).

I’m really sorry if someone already asked this but I can’t bear to read through 121 comments ! In what section of Costco did you find the slow-roasted tomatoes? Refrigerated? Thank you! :)

Love this for a quick, easy lunch. The third time I made it I had no tomatoes so I spread the toast with some tomato paste and it was still great.

Love your ideas and photos! I have a similar idea to your “Grown Up PB and J”…I call it “Sophisticated PB and J”… Just smoosh ripe berries with a fork to act as the jelly. Looks gorg and totally delish! I’m gonna make the “Elvis” ASAP!

I cannot believe you managed to put everything I love into one post: bread/toast, almond butter, avocado, hummus, beans, banana, and chocolate! Even though I had a satisfying meal just a few minutes ago, these pictures make my mouth water.

Especially that Vegan Delight…I might just go to the kitchen and make myself a follow-up meal.

Yummy! making my version of the elvis now by spreading pb, topping with banana, and drizzling with coconut oil + cocoa + maple syrup chocolate because I don’t have sun butter or chocolate (sad day, I know.)

absolutely love your blog! Fell in love with it right after reading the about me section. Ive been trying to make the switch and become a vegan for a while now and your blog might just have been the piece of the puzzle i was missing! Completely love the toast ideas as an avid lover of all things carby and delicious! I think the PB & J one is my favorite, cant beat a classic.

Hi Angela, I love your blog! What’s your favorite type of bread to use? I usually just buy the healthiest looking whole wheat bread in the grocery store when I’m there.

People think I’m crazy when I tell them that plain toast and margarine is my all-time favourite meal. So adding anything to toast is a bonus. I used to try and balance Tomato, Cucumber, Onion, Avocado etc. on the bread while trying to get a bite without it all falling off onto the plate. I decided to chop everything up in a bowl instead and voila, it’s much easier to eat.
My recipe:
1/2 Avocado, Tomato, Red Onion, Cucumber, Banana Pepper Rings, Salt & Pepper

Mash the Avocado and spread onto hot toast. (no marg. needed)
Chop remaining ingredients in a bowl and pile on top. Sprinkle with S & P and enjoy. Yummy……

I’m going to try you Elvis Toast tomorrow morning. :)

Is that bread vegan? Cause I’m looking for a vegan bread recipe that’ll deliver light and fluffy bread.

Thanks very much for the quick beans recipe! Don’t make them as often as I’d like, can’t wait to try fast yet flavourful ones. Mmmm

Thanks so much!
