18 Tasty Vegan Breakfast Ideas
Making a vegan breakfast is easier (and more delicious) than you’d think.
Everyone will want seconds of these vegan cinnamon rolls from Sunday Morning Banana Pancakes. This brunch treat can be made ahead of time, stashed in the fridge, and then popped in the oven to bake when your friends arrive.
Vegan sawmill gravy and biscuits with TVP-shiitake hash
This vegan breakfast recipe from Olives for Dinner wraps southern flair around comfort food with its creamy gravy soaked into flaky biscuits. TVP, or textured vegetable protein, is used to replace meat in vegan cooking, but experiment with tempeh, tofu, seitan, or just extra veg.
Buckwheat crepes with chocolate cream sauce
Sweet Potato Soul pulls off vegan, gluten-free crepes by using arrowroot powder and ground flax seed, both working as an egg replacement. The fast five-ingredient chocolate sauce incorporates tahini (or other nut/seed butter), soy or almond milk, maple syrup, Medjool dates, and cocoa powder. Don’t bank on leftovers.
Scrambled egg and bacon breakfast sandwich
For this vegan breakfast sandwich, golden-brown tofu, melted vegan cheese, vegan bacon, and tomato slices are piled high on an English muffin half and topped with a sprinkling of pea shoots. Blogger Sunday Morning Banana Pancakes also suggests adding a green note with arugula and sauteed peppers.
