Some of my favourite things to eat are served on toast, in fact it‘s my go-to lunch option. Whether its beans, a slick of hummus with some greens, tahini and roasted veg, or creamy almond cheese, fruit and maple. Toast toppings are endless, you just need a good thick slice of your favourite bread and you‘re halfway there. My favourite is just classic sourdough.
But this recipe is not about the toast, it‘s all about the beans, which happen to be delicious served on toast, as a side dish, or topped with roasted veggies. If you‘re looking of more to add, try sautéed kale or spinach, fresh herbs and a sprinkle of seeds to give them a nice crunchy texture.
This super simple store cupboard staple recipe can easily be adapted to suit season and mood. My favourite kind of recipe.
