Add these smashed broad beans on toast, to your Morning Routine. Broad Beans on Toast (Protein packed breakfast) is a recipe you have to try. They also make a good brunch and the broad bean paste can be used with crostini’s. I have made this recipe Vegan but you can equally add on some add on crispy parma ham and make them into tasty canapes.
Avocado on toast may be a classic, but let’s be honest – the disappointment when that avocado isn’t quite perfect can be a downer. Enter the protein-packed alternative: broad beans on toast, featuring a delicious vegan twist with VeDaYu. This easy-to-make recipe is not only satisfying but also a refreshing change from the ordinary.
Broad Beans on Toast
- 200 grams frozen broad beans or broad bean mix e.g., Marks and Spencer’s broad bean edamame and pea mix
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- Zest of half a lemon
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
- A couple of mint leaves
- Salt to taste
- 1-2 tsps of plain yogurt optional
- Vegan nduja Belazu is the one I use
- Boil the frozen beans for 5 minutes, then drain.
- In a food processor, combine the cooked beans, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, olive oil, chili flakes, salt, and mint leaves. Blitz to a coarse paste.
- Due to the bean skins, the paste may not be easily spreadable. Add a couple of teaspoons of yogurt and blitz again.
- Spread a layer of the broad bean paste onto your toast and top it off with cooked VeDaYu.
Broad beans are a great source of protein and this mixed one has edamame ones which is even better.
The combination of lemon juice and zest adds a burst of citrusy freshness, awakening your taste buds.
Mint leaves contribute a hint of coolness, enhancing the overall flavour profile.
Unlike the unpredictability of avocados, this broad bean spread promises a perfect batch every time.
Adding the vegan nduja adds a kick to the smashed beans and adds depth to the dish. The plant based Nduja I recommend is Belazu Ve Du Ya.
