The classic, cheesy open-face sandwich from Wales gets a hearty plant-based makeover using beans and mushrooms for a base. The vegan rarebit topping can be prepared up to three days ahead so it’s ready to top toasted muffins. Serve it for a light dinner or a cozy brunch, or slice for a tasty holiday or game-day appetizer.

Mary Margaret Chappell

When Mary Margaret Chappell first started out in the plant-based food world as a writer, editor, and recipe developer, she was a bacon-loving former pastry chef who didn’t think she could ever cook without butter. Fourteen years, four cookbooks, dozens of cooking classes, and hundreds of recipes later, her favorite thing in the world is sharing the tips, techniques, and recipes that show just how easy and delicious whole-food, plant-based cooking can be. The former food editor of Vegetarian Times magazine has done away with her dependency on butter and is honing her skills at baking with natural sweeteners. 

Mary Margaret lives in France, where plant-based eating can often be a challenge, but the fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes available are simply amazing.
