Nutritional values

The beans in this dish are packed with protein and iron, nutrients which can often be missing in vegetarian recipes. 

You can also use dried white beans in this English breakfast. Soak them in plenty of water the night before, drain the next day and bring to a boil in cold water. Simmer for about 45 to 60 minutes.

A slice of toasted rye bread goes well with the English breakfast.

Preparation steps


Wash the tomatoes and drain. Clean the mushrooms and halve or quarter them, depending on their size. Brush a baking dish with 1-1/2 teaspoons of oil and place the tomatoes and mushrooms next to each other. Season with salt and pepper. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 °C / 350 °F for about 20-25 minutes.


Drain the beans in a sieve. Peel and finely chop the onion. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan and fry the onion in it. Add honey and tomato paste and fry briefly. Then deglaze with strained tomatoes and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add beans and season with salt, pepper, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar and chili flakes.


Grease another baking dish with 1-1/2 teaspoons of oil, pour in the beans, and put in the oven with the tomatoes and mushrooms for the last 5 minutes. Remove vegetables from the oven and bake beans for another 5-7 minutes.


In the meantime, heat the remaining oil with butter in a frying pan and fry four fried eggs in it. Season with salt and pepper. Wash parsley, shake dry and chop coarsely.


Arrange baked beans, tomatoes and mushrooms together with a fried egg on each plate and sprinkle with parsley.
