Vegan loaded toast: Avocado, scrambled tofu and tomatoes

5 min

Loaded toast is the ultimate brunch option if you’re looking for a plant-based dish that requires minimal effort but has maximum flavour. Taking avo on toast to a new level with a fiery tofu twist, this is definitely one to tick off the vegan list this Veganuary.


  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 x 280g block extra-firm tofu
  • 2 tsp dairy-free butter
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 large slice of fresh bread
  • Fresh chives
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Avocado
  • Tomatoes


Start by finely slicing the garlic and adding it to a large frying pan on a medium heat for a minute.
Next, crumble the tofu into the pan along with two teaspoons of dairy-free butter, the nutritional yeast, turmeric and some salt and pepper - cooking for 5 minutes.
Whilst the tofu is cooking, put your slice of toast into the toaster, cut open your avocado and remove the stone, and slice up some fresh cherry tomatoes and chives.
When your toast is ready, spread a layer of avocado on it, top it with the scrambled tofu and add your cherry tomatoes and fresh chives to finish.
