The ultimate brunch, this simple French toast recipe hits the spot every single time — especially when served with maple syrup, coconut yoghurt and fresh berries.

I’m pretty obsessed with mushrooms at the best of times, I just love their texture and their ability to absorb so many flavours, which is why they work so well here. They’re sliced thinly and then sautéed with fresh thyme, onion, garlic, salt and pepper and then stirred through with coconut yoghurt to create a rich, creamy mix that absorbs so well into crusty sourdough bread.View Recipe
This black bean brunch recipe is inspired by chilaquiles — a traditional Mexican dish consisting of corn tortilla chips served over a richly flavoured broth. In our take, we have added black beans, a creamy cashew sauce and fresh charred corn salsa. There are many variations of chilaquiles, so view this recipe as a suggestion, rather than the rule — avocado, scrambled tofu, sautéed spinach or any kind of tomato salsa would be delicious on top. We love the taste of the charred sweetcorn in the salsa but, if you prefer, feel free to use a small tin of plain uncharred sweetcorn. And if you don’t fancy making your own tortilla chips, simply use shop bought.View Recipe
