Do you like those saucy beans that come in the all-mighty full English breakfast? Then we think you'll love this baked beans toast recipe.
The secret to those yummy beans is the Worcestershire sauce. You may not know this, but classic Worcestershire sauce is not vegan, as it contains anchovies. If you are not on a vegan diet or are not allergic to fish, that's fine. Below we'll show you how to make a "beans on toast" breakfast recipe that is allergy-friendly and vegan.
So the question is, how can we make a taste-alike Worcestershire sauce that is also vegan? In our opinion, the dominant flavours in this classic sauce come from the anchovies, the sugar, and the vinegar. We will need plant-based alternatives that taste acidic, pungent, and sweet. We think soy sauce can take care of the first two, and maple syrup of the latter requirement.
And so we have concocted a delicious yet simple blend of tomato sauce, maple syrup and soy sauce — a 100% plant-based sauce that is cheap and easy to prepare.
With the sauce sorted, the rest of the recipe is a breeze. Just cook the beans with it and layer them over a slice of toasted bread and fresh baby spinach leaves. Opt for some sourdough bread if you can, it makes all the difference. Do you already have sourdough yeast bubbling in your kitchen? Try out this recipe with this pumpkin sourdough bread!
