6 Vegetarian Toast Recipes (Video)


Use homemade or store-bought bread to make these 6 delicious vegetarian toasts that are perfect for any meal!

Step up your toast game with these tasty toast combinations that are completely meat-free! They have so much flavor and are a nice break from a typical peanut butter and jelly toast (my childhood go-to). I made sweet and savory toasts, with some of them being Asian-inspired as I wanted to incorporate some flavors that I am very familiar with into these recipes. I recently purchased a tall loaf pan and immediately baked a milk bread the day I received the pan! The outcome was great, and I figured making multiple toasts was the best way to utilize this loaf of bread. I used a simple no-knead bread recipe from Kkume.

Toasts are eaten in all forms around the world and have gained popularity due to Instagram and brunch culture. Pretty crazy that such a simple food also has a trend, right? Restaurants would make gorgeous and extravagant toasts and guests would overpay for these toasts, me included. While it is important to dine at restaurants for the social aspect and ambiance, I want to show you that you can also make restaurant-quality food while at home. It requires a bit of effort, but you can turn your home into a breakfast/brunch cafe in minutes!

Some of the toast recipes are common while the others aren’t so much. Hope you get a chance to try all the flavors and I’d love to know which ones you like best!
