Two Minute Toast Ideas (Which Are All Vegan Friendly!)

Toast will always have a place in my heart.... During my first year of university I survived on carbs however after starting discovering how fantastic food could be, I realised that Nutella on toast probably wasn't the most nutritious meal.

However it is a love affair that cannot be parted with, so instead of banishing toast, I swapped white bread for wholemeal, discovering gorgeous new ways of getting my fix. 

So here are my favourite ways of using simple ingredients to celebrate the wonder that is.... toast!

Sliced Avocado, Pomegranate Seeds, Moon Cut Cucumber & Sesame Seeds

IMG_0976What better way to start this off then the classic avocado on toast. It seems every health fanatic and food blogger is going mad for avocado but with good reason! Packed with healthy fats, this green bombshell is a great way to fill yourself up. By ditching sugary breakfasts, and replacing it for healthy fats, you will feel fuller longer and won't be craving a chocolate bar by 10am. I have ditched the cereals and try to make the most of nutritious food.

Baked Houmous On Rye Bread Topped With Asparagus & Tomatoes

For this, I lightly toast the rye bread first, then layer the houmous, asparagus and tomatoes with a sprinkle or oregano then place in an oven (180˚C) for around 6 minutes to bake the houmous. The flavour becomes more intense when baked, so definitely worth giving a try!

Homemade Chia Jam On Seeded Batch, With Sliced Figs, Crushed Pistachios & Dairy Free Coconut Yogurt

I love using seasonal fruits, so around the end of summer/autumn figs are at their best! Paired with my homemade chia jam here and crunchy pistachios this is a perfect way to start your day. Full of natural sugars, it is bound to hit that sweet tooth and is far better then eating a bowl of coco pops (as addictive as they might be.)

Garlic Houmous On Wholemeal Slice, Topped With Fresh Rocket & Olives

If you haven't noticed, I have a slight obsession with houmous. It's so versatile and can be filled with all sorts of flavours such as lemon, garlic, pepper & onion. In this image I had simply added olives, rocket and sesame seeds, so a very Greek feel about this dish!

Spiralized Courgette Noodles, In a Pesto Sauce, With Peas & Spinach With Dairy Free Cheese Sprinkled On Top

Every now and then I indulge in white bread, but only good quality, like ciabatta. So to stay with the Italian vibe of ciabatta, I spiralized 1 courgette, and sautéed in a pesto sauce, for around 3 minutes to heat, then adding fresh garden peas. 

It takes literally minutes to make, but gives you a plate of green goodness!

Homemade Chia Jam With Fresh Blueberries, Pomegranate Seeds, Chia Seeds & Dairy Free Yogurt

Most mornings I have a sweet tooth, so to try and stay away from cereal, I turn to my chia jam and get sugar from fruit like blueberries (which are actually really low in sugar) so some of the best berries to have. Dairy free yogurt is great, and can be found in most supermarkets. I use the coconut collaborative company.

I originally saw this idea on Jamie Oliver's Food Tube and at first thought, wondered what all the fuss was about. However after trying it, it is my favourite small lunch to go to when in a hurry. Houmous, pomegranate and rocket are always a staple in my kitchen as they taste so fantastic together.
