Mediterranean beans on toast

If we had beans on toast in Cyprus, this is how we were going to serve it! Today, we are elevating the humble beans with few simple ingredients that take this dish to the next level. It's so versatile, as you can have it as breakfast, it can be the centrepiece of your brunch gathering, and it makes the perfect lunch if you put it in a sandwich or wrap.

Vegan, soy free, gluten free | Serves 2 | BREAKFAST


  • 1 shallot
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 sun-dried tomatoes
  • A small handful of parsley
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 240g beans, drained and rinsed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of chili flakes
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 30ml of vegan white wine
  • Juice of half lemon


Serve with:

  • Hummus
  • Bread of choice
  • Thyme (fresh or dried)
  • Toasted hazelnuts
  • A drizzle of olive oil



1.Slice the shallot and grate the garlic.

2.Then slice the sun-dried tomatoes and chop the parsley.

3.In a wide pan, on medium heat, add the olive oil and shallots with a pinch of salt and sauté until translucent, stirring occasionally.

4.Then add the garlic and sun-dried tomatoes, cook for a minute or 2 before you add the beans.

5.Season, add the wine and capers and cook for 2-3 minutes until the alcohol has been evaporated.

6.Finish with the fresh parsley and squeeze the lemon juice.

7.I like to either serve it on some toasted bread that I added a generous layer of hummus, then the beans, some toasted hazelnuts and a drizzle of olive oil. Or another way is to spread hummus on a big plate, then add the beans, hazelnuts and olive oil, serve some bread on the side and enjoy as a sharing platter.



*Use gluten free bread, if you want to avoid gluten

*You can replace the wine with some veggie stock, if you prefer to keep it alcohol free.

*You can prepare the beans in advance and store them in the fridge, you can either warm it up or let it out for few minutes and enjoy at room temperature.
