  • Baked Beans
  • Wholemeal Bread

Options – not necessarily all at once!

  • Try a wholefood brand of baked beans such as Biona or Whole Earth – they are sweetened naturally and tend to be lower in salt. But if the only brand that exists for you is the iconic blue tin… well, spoil yourself!
  • Use the best quality wholemeal bread you can get – try rye or other types of bread for a change.
  • Try nut or seed butters (eg peanut, cashew, almond, tahini) instead of margarine.
  • A little yeast extract (eg Marmite or Meridian) is also good.
  • Half a teaspoon of cumin powder stirred into the beans makes a nice change too.
  • Hot pepper sauce – a dash
  • Spinkle with nutritional yeast flakes – pictured. Engevita brand is sold in most health food shops. They have a nice, slightly cheesy taste and are full of goodness. (NOT the same as brewer’s yeast!)
  • Grill or fry some tomatoes and sprinkle with black pepper


  1. Heat the beans and make the toast. Use any options as you wish. Pour beans on top of toast and eat immediately. Sprinkle with yeast flakes if using.

Did you know that V30 is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
