I absolutely LOVE this dish!
Simple, rustic & so delicious. I love having it for breakfast or mid day snack
Made this several times now and it's so good.
My partner loves to have bread for dinner and I really like to have warm meals for dinner... this is my go-to now, so everyone's happy :)
Thank you for sharing this!
My boyfriend keeps asking for this recipe. So much more flavorful than the canned versions and so easy to make. 10/10 recommend the yogurt, avo, and jalapeno on top!
Great taste! Just not a big fan of navy beans. I would definitely make this again with cannellini or other beans!
One of the fastest and tastiest lunches ever! Interesting flavours and after seeing the picture, I was surprised that only tomato paste is used, with no canned tomatoes. It was also quite spicy especially with jalapeños which matched perfectly my knäckebröd that I used instead on the rustic bread. Highly recommended!
Wow, this was amazingly tasty and surprisingly quick/easy to make! One bite and I knew it was going into my meal rotation. I love the options presented for swapping ingredients. Thank you!!
I use this recipe all the time with a baked (or smashed because it’s faster) potato and it’s the best weeknight wholesome dinner- highly recommend, especially with the jalapeños
We had this for lunch today and it was a hit! I had a hard time with the garlic burning before the bread would toast in the pan though- although I'm positive that's my own lack of experience with cooking. Definitely will make this again- quick, easy, cheap, and nourishing!
This was sooo good! Loved it, and so did our toddler. We are not used to such a big breakfast over here (Dutch), so we had it for lunch. I added fresh coriander/cilantro because I saw it on the photos, but later realized that it's not on the ingredients list. Flavor fits really well though. I think adding salad and avocado to have it as a dinner is quite nice too. Will try in the future.
Hello! I’m back at it again with veganuary and I have to say that I have made many of the recipes I tried last year all throughout the year. I really appreciate this recipe as I’m not overly an oats kind of gal (although I have really liked your recipes). This meal really surprised me. I thought it was a bit odd but dang it is so delicious. I didn’t have any yogurt and I ate it with pickled jalapeños (I love spice!) and added spinach. This will definitely keep you satisfied if you’re looking for a breakfast to keep you going in the morning!! Thanks again Sadia and Robin!!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE your servings scale its brilliant! Struggled with this for years! Love your new website additions. you all are sooo creative thank you for helping all of us!!! :)
I have a bit of a random question. As someone with a tomato allergy, what substitute do you recommend?
Wow that flavor!! I never thought beans on toast could be so exciting! It was the perfect weekend brunch :D
These are so good. I will definitely be making these a part of my meal plan rotation for sure. A great cozy Fall and Winter addition.
I am more of a sweet breakfast person but when Sadia mentioned she sometimes has this for dinner, I figured why not try it? I've made it a few times now for lunch or dinner (with some avocado as suggested to bulk it up a bit) and it's delicious! It's definitely worth it to make the tomato sauce from scratch rather than buying beans in tomato sauce, it doesn't take much time and totally elevates the dish, plus you can customize it to your own liking when adding the spices. I haven't tried it with pickled jalapeños yet, but will try it next time because it sounds like a great addition!
Just made this for a weekend breakfast and it was WONDERFUL! Had it with some avo and it was delish!
I love pick up limes and have been following you for years! Keep up the good work!
What a delightful upgrade to the classic beans on toast that I've known since childhood! I especially oved the chipotle flavours and addition of the creamy yogurt on top! 🤌🏻 I used cannellini beans as I was unable to find navy beans and they were great.
Good call on the pickled jalapenos - it was already the most flavorful baked bean recipe but that just took it over the top 👌 thanks for the recipe, PUL!
Oh, this was a delightful recipe! I'm continually learning in the kitchen, and I'm eager to share what's worked for me. I made it about 80% to the written recipe based on what was in my fridge/pantry, so here are my tweaks in case someone else in the same situation - I did not have any spicy sauce, so I used about 3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika, 3/4 teaspoon regular paprika, and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne. I bloomed all the spices in a bit of olive oil before adding the tomato paste, which I cooked down til it got darker. Maybe 3 minutes?
I had these weird tasting whole grain pita pockets that came frozen (Ezekiel brand, if anyone's curious), toasted those in the garlic olive oil til they got almost crunchy and they got significantly better tasting.
The pickled jalapenos add so much! Didn't have a jar of them, but I did have a regular pepper from the farmer's market hanging out in the crisper. I cut it up, boiled maybe half a cup to 3/4 cup (depends on the size of your container) of distilled white vinegar with 2 teaspoons sugar and a teaspoon of salt, and poured it over the pepper in a glass bowl. By the time the beans were done, my pepper was done pickling. (I'm a slow cook, lol)
If you have time, let the beans simmer on low for 20ish or more minutes so the flavors have more time to soak into the beans. Add maybe half a cup of extra water so the beans don't stick to the bottom (remember to stir!) Also, taste for salt and pepper.
I will absolutely be making these again! <3
Super delicious and easy to make :)
Easy to make en very delicious!! I made it with some slices avocado.
Hello, I completely love your website, your recipes, your spirit, love story, humor and transparency. The lovely aesthetics of your outstanding website make me want to be a better cook., person and human. :) Simply put, you make food look beautiful. Typically a deeply shy person, I don't comment often. However I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate and truly enjoy and admire your website. I'd like to know if your e-Book of recipes is available for purchase in the US and will another book of your recipes be available in the future.? They are gorgeous and look delicious. It's hard to pick a favorite. :)
I've always struggled with eating breakfast on a regular basis, but I can definitely see myself making this quite often. Really easy. Really yummy even with some ingredient substitutions.
Love this savory breakfast. Didn’t have canned chipotle so used a bit of chipotle hot sauce instead. So yummy!
So delicious and easy to make! I used cannelloni beans and bullion paste as that was what I had on hand and it was still very yummy. For my personal preference I would recommend adding a bit less tomato paste.
Had this for lunch today and it was sooo tasty!! Love how quickly it came together and I absolutely love garlic toast! I already know this is going to become a regular :D
Had it with avocado - amazing!!!
My word... this is so much better than the store-bought baked beans. So much flavour in these! And on garlic toast? Genius.
