Vegan breakfast...Sauteed Maple Apples on wholesome toast, vegan, hearty and delicious! | www.feastingathome.com

Here’s a simple vegan breakfast that I often turn turn as the weather cools. Warm apples, sautéed with maple syrup, simply served on toast. It feels almost decadent, but it so easy. Toast up a few slices of hearty wholesome bread,  sauté sliced apples in a little coconut oil (or butter), sprinkle with cardamon, nutmeg or cinnamon, and finish with a splash of maple syrup, letting the apples caramelize. Pile the warm apples on the hot toast, along with the drippings, and eat with a knife and fork. For extra protein, sometimes I’ll add almond butter. Simple, quick and easy.

As the weather cools, a switch goes off in my head and all I want to do is bake bread. I’m sure I got this from my mother, who probably got it from her mother, who got it from hers.  From a long line of Finnish mothers, the bread I grew up eating was wholesome and dense, made with whole grains, most often rye. She would mill her own grains, back before this was popular. Dark, earthy, dense and flavorful, with a hint of sweetness, her rye bread was a meal. When the fresh baked loaf came out of the oven, my mom would butter the heel and hand me the still warm slice. It was delicious. On days when I was sick, she would toast it, and lather it up with honey. To this day, it’s my favorite way to eat toast when I want to feel nurtured.

This “no-knead” loaf is made with sourdough starter, rye flour, extracted wheat flour and sprouted rye berries. It’s easy to make, and after the holidays, I’ll walk you though the process, beginning with starter.

  1. My wife and I had been out apple picking at some local orchards and when I got home I started looking for recipes. I modified this recipe a little bit. I used golden delicious apples and added raisins and some toasted pine nuts. I placed it on top of some farro instead of toast. I really liked the maple syrup and apple combination. I will have to try it with some other dishes.

  2. Hi there. This is my first post, but I have made my family (and myself) so happy at meal time with several of your dishes. Thank you for sharing your recipes and thoughts.
    I am not a big fan of jam, but my husband is. Maybe it is because his parents used fruits from his backyard and made jams from scratch with just the right amount of gelatin so he loved it at an early age? The apples look like the perfect compromise for us. Yum!
