Ahh, the ultimate quick and easy comfort food – who doesn’t love something on toast? And being vegan doesn’t mean you don’t still have loads of yummy choices. 

Buttery Spread

Want something quick and easy? Try one of the lovely butter substitutes – Flora Dairy Free is popular for its realistic ‘buttery’ flavor, and Vitalite is a great budget option. 

For something a little fancier, try Pure Olive Spread or Flora Freedom with Avocado Oil and  Lime.


Marmite – love it or hate it – is quick, easy and delicious – and gives you a good dose of B vitamins, too. 

If you’re feeling more adventurous, how about combining with a non-dairy soft cheese, such as Violife Creamy? You could even top the whole thing with jam. Sounds weird?  Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it! 

Jam or Marmalade

Most jams and marmalades are vegan, so plenty of choice there. Combine with peanut butter if you like!

Nut Butters

Peanut butter isn’t the only option out there! Experiment with almond, cashew, and more. WowButter is another option that’s vegan-friendly and 100% peanut-free, making it popular for school packed lunches.

Biscuit Spread

Another delicious sweet option is biscuit spread – something like Lotus Biscoff – available in Crunchy and Smooth. 


Have a little more time? Good old-fashioned baked beans are great, but don’t ignore more exotic varieties like spicy beans or taco beans which are available in most supermarkets. 


Got a tin of chopped tomatoes in the cupboard? Warm them up and add salt and a few drops of fiery Tabasco or Sriracha sauce for a quick spicy hit. 

Tinned Spaghetti

And on the subject of tins, how about some tinned spaghetti?  We all know how much fun hoops and letters are, no matter how old we are. 


Avocado – everyone’s favourite superfood – is great chopped and smashed on toast. Either eat it as it is or pop under the grill for a few minutes. For extra flavour, chop in some tomato and top with chilli, salt and pepper. 



Chop up some mushrooms and cook for a few minutes in water or oil, with garlic, salt and pepper added.  Pile on top of your toast for a warm and satisfying snack.


Houmous tastes amazing on toast and can make a nice alternative to cheese in toasted sandwiches, since it melts slightly when warm.

    SO many good options! I love the Flora dairy-free spread; it’s surprisingly buttery – I don’t think I’d know the difference. But really, you can’t beat avocado on toast can you?!
