How to Make Great Vegan Toasts

Now, we’re not just talking about any old toast ideas here — we want to offer a blueprint for how to make delicious vegan toasts that help you meet your nutritional goals for the day.

First of all, choose whole grain over white bread if you can or use gluten-free varieties if needed. Store-bought is fine, we also have a super simple buckwheat bread recipe on the blog that you can try!

Give your toasts a nutritional boost by adding some plant-based protein like tofu cream cheese, hummus, peanut butter or hemp seeds. We also like sliced smoked tofu as you can see in our healthy vegan grilled cheese sandwich recipe!

Many of these foods are good sources of fat, too. Avocado, almond ricotta and other nut or seed butters also fall in this category!

Add delicious flavor to your vegan toasts by using condiments like tofu ranch, honey mustard, or sugar-free berry chia jam. You can also drizzle your toasts with maple syrup, hot sauce, add cinnamon, cocoa nibs, seeds or fresh herbs.

Don’t forget to use some fruits and veggies for your toast toppings, too! Common choices are lettuce, tomatoes, bell pepper, avocado, sprouts, banana or berries.

Peanut Butter Toast with Banana & Berries

Move over, peanut butter and jelly — your healthier cousin, peanut butter toast with banana and berries, is just as sweet but more nutritious and, frankly, more fun to make.

Packing a good amount of protein, healthy fats and antioxidants thanks to the blueberries (just use your favorite berries), this one is such a simple vegan toast idea that’s not only tasty but also good for you.

More topping ideas include coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds, dried fruit and hemp seeds!

Hummus & Grilled Veggie Toast

Ah, hummus! The classic vegan toast and sandwich spread. Flavorful and high in protein, it pairs well with lots of toppings and fillings.

From crunchy greens, tomatoes or avocado, there’s almost nothing you cannot pack on a  hummus toast!

For this recipe, you need to take some time aside and grill a few veggies if you don’t happen to have any leftover grilled veg from last night! If you plan on making grilled vegetables for dinner, be sure to save some for the following day.

Here are 50 more ideas for what to eat with hummus!

Vegan ALT Toast

Have you heard of the vegan BLT sandwich called ALT? It stands for avocado, lettuce and tomato — a simple, affordable and tasty combination.

You can enjoy this vegan toast as an open-faced sandwich or just add another slice on top and take it with you to lunch!

Use your favorite vegan spread (we like cashew mayo) and top with fresh veggies. Done!

Vegan Tofu Scramble Toasts

Do you have a bit more time on your hand? Make these tofu scramble toasts! Don’t worry, it’s not as complicated as it sounds and resembles scrambled eggs both in taste and color.

Just sauté some chopped veggies, add crumbled tofu and a couple of spices and cook for a few minutes before serving over warm toast.

We like to enjoy our tofu scramble with some ketchup and sliced avocado!

Hummus Grilled Veg

  1. Preheat the oven to 450° F (230° C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Arrange your sliced bell pepper and eggplant in a single layer on your prepared baking sheet and roast for about 20 minutes until the veggies have become soft and wrinkled.

Notes

  • Use gluten-free bread if needed.
  • Any vegan spreads can be used for the ALT and tempeh bacon is a great addition here as well!
  • Black salt makes tofu scramble taste like eggs but if you can’t find this item anywhere, just use iodized salt instead.
  • Swap peanut butter for sunflower butter if you cannot have nuts.
