    Ingredients

    • Calorie controlled cooking spray
    • 400g button mushrooms, halved
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 4 large tomatoes, halved
    • 4 slices WW Thick Wholemeal Bread, toasted, to serve
    • For the 'bacon'
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1½ tablespoons vegan Worcestershire sauce
    • ½ tablespoon maple syrup
    • ½ tablespoon dark soy sauce
    • ½ tablespoon sweet smoked paprika
    • 4 carrots, peeled into thin strips using a vegetable peeler
    • For the beans
    • 1 small onion, finely chopped
    • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1 tablespoon sweet smoked paprika
    • 2 x 400g tins cherry tomatoes
    • 400g tin haricot beans, drained and rinsed

    Method

    • Preheat the oven to 140°C, fan 120°C, gas mark 1 and line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.

    • Toss all of the ‘bacon’ ingredients together in a mixing bowl, then arrange the carrot strips in a single layer on the prepared baking trays, reserving the marinade. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, basting with the reserved marinade halfway through, until the carrots are crisp. Set aside.

    • Meanwhile, make the beans. Mist a large nonstick frying pan with cooking spray and set over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 6-8 minutes, until soft. Add the garlic and spices and cook for another minute, then stir in the tomatoes and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the beans and simmer for a further 5 minutes.

    • Mist a large nonstick frying pan with cooking spray and fry the mushrooms over a medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes. Stir through the parsley, then push the mushrooms to one side of the pan. Add the fresh tomatoes, cut side-down, and cook for 2 minutes, then turn over and cook for another minute.

    • Top the toast with the beans and serve with the mushrooms, tomatoes and ‘bacon’.
