The English Breakfast tradition of hearty beans in tomato sauce served with baked tomatoes and toasty bread is so welcome! Every time I’m in England, I am enamored by this delicious food custom. Though it often includes sausage, it’s quite easy to skip out on that animal protein and make the meal completely vegetarian—essentially vegan. In this 100% plant-based version of a Vegetarian English Breakfast, the breakfast plate is filled with an array of plant foods: toasted English muffins, baked beans in tomato sauce, crispy, seasoned baked tomatoes, and avocado slices. Now those avocados are my own California contribution, and I think they suit the plate quite well. My English friends remind me that the American version of “English Muffins” doesn’t exist in England. But they suit this plate perfectly. You can also add veggie sausage links to the plate, if you like. Make it gluten-free with a couple of tweaks. This is also a wonderful meal for “breakfast for dinner”. Balanced in protein, carbs, and healthy fats, you can get it on the table in under 15 minutes with only 7 ingredients.
