Dinner For Breakfast Toast 3 Ways (GF, Vegetarian, Vegan)

Edit 5August 2017 Recipe Redux

Rise and Shine with a Savory Breakfast

The trend of protein-packed breakfasts is catching on…and back-to-school time is looming. This month, show us new healthy takes on eating savory or dinner-inspired dishes for breakfast. Think egg burritos, beans and rice, or maybe even pasta?! This theme was inspired by Emily Ruth Weir.Edit 3I squinted, studying the small piece of paper in my hand. I tried to make out the lines of bold colors and tiny words using my finger to trace the path. I was officially lost. I had no idea which train station we were at or whether we were going east or west.

In exasperation, I turned and shrugged at my younger sister who was also looking intently at her phone. I could see her dark eyes darting back and forth, scanning the bright screen. Looking up, she pointed forward.

Thank goodness for phones and technology. Maps were useless. Or should I say that I was useless at reading maps.

Strolling along the pavements, we came across restaurant after restaurant. Lebanese food, Thai food, Italian food, Pides, Traditional Pubs, Tea shops, Cafes, Bakeries, Patisseries filled with gorgeous displays of extravagant cakes and dainty macarons. Block after block, the tiny streets were lined with vintage 1900 style brick buildings, red telephone boxes, tall black lampposts…

After sitting down in a retro cafe, we waited for our order, as I flipped through a cookbook. I jolted, looking up to see the waiter placing down 2 plates on the table next to ours: Thin seeded bread with a chunky layer of avocado mash, flaked salmon & teriyaki sauce.

I nudged Zoe immediately. We both watched in awe at how tasty it looked. I definitely regretted ordering the egg white frittata.

Toast with anything tastes amazing (of course with good quality bread) especially with avocado. In fact, after tasting the vast selection of gluten free breads in London it just confirmed my love for toast. Cafe after cafe, I simply couldn’t get it out of my mind, so much so Zoe and I decided to make toast for this month’s challenge!Edit 1The key to the best breakfast toast lies in the quality of the bread and of course your toppings! For a dinner twist to it, we have included some of our favorite dinner items from all over the world – hummus, mushroom stir fry, soft boiled eggs, guacamole and of course our ABSOLUTE CHILDHOOD favorite – my dad’s famous Cantonese Eggs and Tomatoes stir fry. This is a classic that every Chinese kid grows up with and I have to say my dad’s one is the best. Whenever we are on vacation all of us and my cousins beg my dad to make it. And finally the bonus recipe is here too!Edit 4So today we present not 1 but 3 of OUR FAVORITE Cafe-style Breakfast TOAST:

  • Mashed avocado and runny soft boiled egg
  • Cantonese Scrambled eggs and tomatoes (My dad’s recipe)
  • White Bean Hummus and Mixed Mushrooms

Edit 12They all taste fabulous! It is honestly so hard to choose which was our favorite. You have a rich runny yolk paired with creamy avocado – making an extremely exquisite, rich, creamy breakfast. The cantonese scrambled eggs and tomatoes was total comfort food for us growing up and a favorite of the whole family! As for the white bean hummus and mushroom stir fry – it is a delicious vegan option with the perfect harmony of fresh rosemary, earthy mushrooms and smooth hummus.Edit 9Don’t they all look so pretty? Perfect to instagram to make your friends jealous! All vegetarian, super inexpensive and gluten free! How can you say no to that?

    Looks great! Will have to try the avocado and Cantonese egg ones. I’m not as much a fan of mushrooms. I wonder what else would be nice to place atop the navy bean one

      Thank you Apryl! 🙂 I hope you do get to try it out because those were delicious!!!! Instead of mushrooms, other vegan options would be: roasted red bell peppers, avocado, grilled eggplant, cucumbers, radish, pomegranate seeds, cherry tomatoes, arugula – anything you like! It pretty much is like an Italian hummus!

  6. What a beautiful selection of recipes and photographs. My Mum and I are big on toast – and I am so looking forward to trying your dad’s recipe for the scrambled egg – sounds so simple but delicious! I love to make scrambled egg with turmeric, coriander, chilli and tomatoes for breakfast and serve it with chapatis. Or I simply mix scrambled egg with spinach and have it with toasted sourdough. I wish it was the morning so I could eat breakfast now … 😉 😀
