Vegan breakfast sandwich recipe notes:

A healthy, high in plant based protein, breakfast. Similar to the fast food favourite but made with whole plant foods. Making it perfect for those looking for vegan comfort food without added oils and low in fat. 

This recipe is high protein too for those looking to make gains in the gym! With beans, lentils, tofu AND chickpea flour (although you can probably leave this out if you can’t get hold of it, your “egg” will just be a lil less eggy and a bit softer so careful it doesn’t break). 

You can switch out the walnuts for any kind of nut or sesame seeds for allergies. 

The lentils and kidney bean “packs” I refer to bellow are those pre-cooked microwaveable pouches. About 250g. You could switch this for home cooked or tinned kidney beans/green lentils & can mix and match with all lentils or all beans. Up to you and what you have available. 

The burgers are best made by frying both sides (either dry or in a little oil) or they can be cooked in the oven. But they are a little softer and breakable when oven cooked only. 

Most importantly, if you do make these make sure to tag me on instagram @naturallyGina_
