Posh Beans on Toast in 10 minutes or less

I am very aware that I don’t have a whole lot of savoury breakfast recipes or lunch options on the blog – what can I say? I love the sweet stuff like fruity smoothies, brownie batter cookie dough oatmeal and peanut butter & jelly on toast. But recently, I have been enjoying posh beans on toast and I want to share the recipe with you.

Posh beans on toast - butter beans with pesto, peas and sweetcorn on avocado toast. A healthy and balance breakfast that will fill you up until lunch. Vegan friendly and sugar free.

After a consultation with nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert, I have been trying to eat more savoury breakfasts. It was kind of tough for me to give-up my delicious oats and berries at first, but now I am more in the groove of having a less sugary breakfast half of the time. I really love avocado on toast and Rhiannon suggested that I increase the protein content to make it a more balanced meal by adding beans – I have used butter beans because they’re my favourite but you could use any. Also, I absolutely LOVE to add peas to my beans on toast, so they have made an appearance in this recipe as well. (Do you remember the Halloween monster toast I made using peas and avocado?)

Posh beans on toast recipe

Serves 1
3 of your 5-a-day

  • 1-2 slices of bread (depending on how big they  / how hungry you are)
  • 1/2 cup butter beans
  • 1/3 cup frozen peas
  • 1/3 cup frozen sweetcorn
  • 1/3 to 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp. vegan pesto*
  • Sprinkle of chilli flakes


  1. Pop your bread in the toaster and toast it to your liking.
  2. Put the beans, peas and sweetcorn in a pan and heat on medium for 4-5 minutes. Stir in the pesto and turn off the heat.
  3. Mash the avocado onto your toast and top with the posh beans.

Number 4 is ‘leave the pan to wash up later’, but that might not go down well in your house! Even with the time needed to wash the pan, this is a quick and easy recipe for posh beans on toast.

    Ooh posh beans on toast sound great! I do love cheesy beans on toast (white bread and butter…yum!) but if I wanted something a little more sophisticated this is fab!

    I never would have thought of putting butter beans on toast but now it sounds really nice and very healthy.

    This looks awesome. I would love to try this myself

    I love that you have done this as I’m not fond of regular baked beans so more than happy to posh things up x

    Oh this definitely looks nicer than just your normal baked beans x

    I really like the sound of these, and it sounds really quick and easy to make too. Perfect for lazy mornings!

    I can’t tell you how timley your post is. I’ve just started seeing a digestive specialist and am off sweet thing for the indefinite future. Admittedly, it’s been a bit difficult getting used to. My husband, on the other had, has always gravitated toward savory. I’m going to make this for a weekend breakfast and I have a feeling we’re both going to love it. x

    I like the add of avocado to the classic beans on toast. It’s very ingenious and very healthy as well. We all know how nutritious avocado is. 🙂

    This is a perfect recipe for my daughter and her grandma! They love avocado on toast, and they love butter beans too, but have never combined them. Thank you for another idea on what to make them!

    You can’t beat beans on toast and this looks much better than the usual student staple.

  14. November 18, 2017 / 8:56 pm

    oh this looks so good! I love beans on toast so love the idea of a fancier alternative! x

  15. November 18, 2017 / 9:28 pm

    Oooh, those flavours sound delicious together, definitely doing this next time I feel my avocado on toast just isn’t cutting it 🙂

    I know a toddler that would love this. To be fair he will eat anything on toast.

    This sounds delicious! I’m a huge fan of beans on toast anyway but this sounds really yummy! I always have spare time of different types of beans in the cupboard and peas in the freezer so it’d be easy to throw this together.

    I’m always a big fan of leaving the pan for later ha. This looks like a great quick recipe, I’ll have to give it a go

    Step 4 of this (super easy) recipe made me laugh! I too love butter beans, so will have to give it a try! X

    Oooo this sounds so good! I love the addition of sweetcorn and this would definitely help me avoid sugary tinned baked beans.

    I really don’t like baked beans, so I’m definitely going to give this variation of beans on toast a try, It looks delish!!
