Whether enjoying them as part of a lunch with friends, a fancy afternoon tea or simply as a snack, we sure did used to love a cheese scone before going vegan. And now our prayers have been answered with this quick and easy savoury scone recipe!

 

What toppings can you put on scones?

The best thing about scones is their soft and buttery texture which cries out to be smothered with something delicious. For a sweet scone, that usually means jam and cream, but a savoury scone is much more versatile.

Here are a few of our favourite savoury scone toppings and fillings…

• Vegan cream cheese and chives
Chickpea ‘tuna’
• Apple and chutney
• Marmite
• Avocado and tomato
• Mediterranean roasted veg
• Vegan bacon
Tofu ‘egg’ mayonnaise
• Dill, vegan cream cheese and vegan smoked ‘salmon’

Scones also go really well with soup, so why not serve these tasty vegan cheese scones alongside a steaming hot bowl of tomato soup?
