Just googling the words "Full English" makes me salivate.
You see; me dad's English and me ma's Welsh. I'm Aussie and me boyfriend's Canadian.
I have quite the foodie mix in me!
Breakfast - who doesn't love it?
A full english is my ideal everything. In life. Perfection.
It is world peace on a plate.
This is my vegan take on a full english, it has no sausage, it has no bacon, it has no eggs, it has no blood pudding.......
It does, however, have LASHINGS of love!
Try it out. I dare you.
Full English Brekky (vegan style)
Serves 1... granted, 1 very hungry soul!
1 slice grainy bread
1 T bean dip (recipe below)
1 tomato, cut in half
1/4 tin baked beans (Heinz english style, PLEASE!)
3 button mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup eggplant, sliced
1/4 cup zucchini, sliced
1 birdseye chilli, sliced finely
avocado, 2 slices
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
English brekkies are all about the timing, so have your plates ready and here we go.
Sprinkle salt and pepper on tomatoes and place under the grill to grill up nicely.
In a saucepan (or microwave, I guess) begin to heat your baked beans.
Whilst that is happening, heat olive oil in frying pan over a medium-high heat.
Add mushrooms first, season, and fry until just beginning to brown. (if you don't do the mushrooms separately first, they will be soggy - ewww)
Add zucchini and eggplant next.
Sprinkle on birdseye chilli.
Drop your toast in the toaster.
Once everything is cooked, browned, warmed through - bring it all together!
Take your vegies off the heat, pour in balsamic vinegar and stir thoroughly.
Spread toast with bean dip (or butter), serve with balsamic vegies, sliced avocado, grilled tomato and beans.
Be proper English and serve with plenty O brown sauce and a nice cuppa.
