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.

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.
These are incredible, I would take one of everything. It would be too hard to choose when it comes to toast, I love it. Being able to change it up with different toppings such as these is exactly why! ;)
Avocado on toast is a classic – love seeing the fancy version. Looks even more delicious.
NOM. I love toasting cinnamon raisin ezekiel bread and slathering it with chia seeds, cinnamon, and wild friends cinnamon raisin peanut butter. Thanks for sharing these ideas!
The ELVIS. Ohhhhh my! Can’t wait to make this for my little guy and maybe myself too lol = )
Do you have a printer mode for your recipes? Your book and blog are wonderful and I
enjoy them so much. Many thanks for all you do.
Leave it to you to make toast look INCREDIBLE. I want all of these. Right now. Espesh the Vegan Deligh. Oh, and the Elvis. Such perfect combos.
What amazing and creative toast ideas! They look too delicious!! :)
OMG. The Elvis. *dies*
so pretty!! And they sound delicious too :)
Omigosh, I love toast in the mornings. It’s just too easy and you can top it with so many things! I love plain old pb and banana, but never thought to add a bit of chocolate to it. And raspberry chia jam sounds a-mazing. :D
The grown up PB&J looks amazing! I love raspberry so much! The Elvis looks like a great treat too!
It is funny you mentioned you eat toast daily. I have to say, it is one of my favorites. I, too, load mine down with a lot of wonderful things. Right now, my favorite is smashed avacodo , sliced tomato and salt and pepper. Simple but delicious. I am very excited about trying your suggestions. Thanks.
I am always looking for ways to change up my vegan sandwich instead of just gluten free deli meat and cheese (lol). This is awesome! (ps those slow roasted tomatoes almost look like a bacon on the avocado sandwich.
I’m a toast person for breakfast (like nearly every day) but I feel I need some savory toast in my life too :)
Love all of these combinations! I’ve been hooked on hummus since becoming vegetarian so that would have to be my favourite combination!
Delicious! thanks for the ideas :)
Wow these sound phenomenal! I love toast, particularly if I use Ezekiel Sprouted Sesame Bread as the base.
One of my favorites in the “Toast Hall of Fame” is this combo:
Toast 1 slice bread of choice. Spread with 1 tsp of coconut oil. Top with 1/2 mashed avocado, squeeze of lemon, squirt of Siracha and sprinkle of flaky sea salt. Add hemp hearts for protein!
It’s positively ADDICTIVE!
I am drooling!! These combinations of toasts look amazing! I can’t imagine how amazing ‘the elvis’ would tast with fresh crunchy bakery bread! Yummy!!
I haven’t had any toast in so long! I’m doing a cleanse and can’t have wheat, but I want the Vegan Delight asap once I’m done.
Toast is one of my all time favorite comfort foods. I crave the deliciousness crunchiness! So many wonderful flavor combinations and toppings to use!
Angela, I feel like I have to meet you some day! I can’t get enough of your recipes–they are always one step ahead of exactly what I was thinking! You always dare to try/do things I think of but don’t execute. Thank you for being my not crazy busy with two kids and a toddler self!
You always have such creative ideas! I’m gonna try those this week, especially since I have to empty my fridge before leaving for vacation next week..
Wish I would’ve thought to thicken up my rhubarb+strawberry jam with chia seeds this morning :(
My stomach is loudly demanding yummy toast now…and midnight is approaching. lol. I love peanut butter toast with applesauce on top, eaten with a fork. Drizzle maple syrup for a bigger treat. I also like sliced bananas on pb toast with the syrup. Oh, boy, I’m really hungry now!
Oh Angela these look ridiculously amazing! Your recipe are all incredible. I’ve been pretty much eating on your food for the past week and I already feel so much more healthy. I had anorexia when I was 15 for a number of years and I’m still learning to nourish my body and not want to starve myself. Really tough but you’re inspiring me to look at food in a different way. Thank you for helping me focus on my health :)
Mastering a handful of tasty and nourishing toasts will be very helpful when your arms are full with baby girl…and you both want to eat…now! I have just enough time in the morning to throw in some toast. But i will be trying your toasty masterpieces soon! Thanks
My favorite toast recipe is pan con tomate. Toast whatever bread you have around. While its toasting, grate a tomato and cut a clove of garlic in half. Take out the toast, drizzle on some olive oil and then rub the garlic on the toast. Top with the grated tomato and little black pepper,
Angela, I can’t even tell you how many of your posts have gotten me out of a serious sandwich/lunch rut! It really was one of the hardest things for me when going vegan, because I couldn’t think of anything to slather on bread other than peanut butter and jelly. You rock!! :D
Girl I am seriously drooling over all these combos!!
wow this is awesome.. love it! defintiely will be trying every single one of these toppings… thanks for sharing!
I’ve been having crazy bread cravings lately, I MUST go get some! Its also been very hot where I am (no AC) so anything I can prepare without having to go near the stove is a life saver! Speaking of, I’ve been trying out some of your no-bake desserts- fantastic! Thanks so much!
WOW! I want some toast now. :)
I’ve gotten really obsessed with toast….there is a place in SF called The Mill, which has coffee and pastries, and also an amazing baker and a TOAST MENU. It changed my life, really. (I’m legitimately considering a toast TATTOO!) Some of my favorite combos (most are avocado centric!)
-Avocado, Tahini, Sea Salt
-Avocado, Almond Butter, and Sea Salt
-This recipe from Heidi Swanson: 101cookbooks.com/archives/avocado-coconut-oil-tartine-recipe.html
-Coconut oil + tahini + sea salt
I’m loving the looks of the Vegan Delight and the Elvis! I’ve been sugar free for the last couple months and in a month will start up again. I miss dark chocolate the most! Couple of questions; what are people’s favorite vegan bread and how are you spreading the sunflower seed butter on The Elvis? Love your recipes! I making you favorite chili now ;)
This is a bakery bread (vegan + GF) from a bakery in London called Organic works…it`s lovely! Buckwheat, oat and flax bread.
I love homemade bread, that I can freeze and use as toast. My current favorite combination is avocado, yellow tomato (less acidic) and sunflower sprouts. Yummy.
BRILLIANT! I love toast too, but I’m definitely not this creative. I did a green dream sandwich last night though (garlic aioli, butter lettuce, avocado, sunflower sprouts, S&P – it was actually really good), but I need to try out these creations. I also need a Costco membership!!
Such a fun post with great options and inspiration, thanks!
Can’t wait to try all of these, especially the Elvis, thanks for sharing!
These are all beautiful, must try ”Elvis” one weekend.
I’ve never tried a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in my life (I know Americans will like What??) and this combo has always sounded really weird to me, but I must admit you made me wanna try the raspberry-almond butter version!
I’ve just got on the avocado toast train… And I SO get it now! Only you could make pb&j look gourmet :) that jam is an incredible color.
These look so fantastic. You can take a simple idea and make me say, “Wow!” Good going. I like the hummus one best….dinner time soon.
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!
I’m a new visitor of this blog and LOVE it. Just made your raspberry chia jam this am and slathered it on some muffins..yum… And now for lunch..whole wheat pita grown up AB & J .. I added some hemp to the top for crunch with the coconut.
Ooohhhh, the Elvis looks absolutely decadent! I’ll have to try that one.
I’m definitely trying the maple baked beans. These all look amazing!
ooh the Elvis looks amazing! The food photography is gorgeous!
Those look fantastic. I love Ezekiel toast with almond or peanut butter, unsweetened applesauce and cinnamon. Yum!
[ Smiles ] I am all for delicious vegan toasts.
Had the vegan delight toast for lunch yesterday and it was delicious! I used eggplant hummus and cherry tomatoes in addition to the avocado, hemp seeds, etc – I did not have roasted tomatoes (I’ll have to look for those!), but I am considering roasting my own tomatoes next time. Avocado toast is one of my favorite staple foods – this took it to a whole new level! I can’t wait to try the other toasts!
No toast roundup would be complete without mentioning almond butter and orange slices. So easy and so so delicious!
