Our top 5 vegan breakfast ideas are so fulfilling, you won’t even feel like you’re missing out on the traditional savory brunch spread. Don’t get us wrong — poached eggs soaked in hollandaise with a side of maple-glazed bacon will always smell heavenly. But let’s be honest, greasy spoon brunch feasts are more likely to send you crawling back to bed than jumping up to enjoy your minty fresh life. So if you’ve ever wondered, what do vegans eat for breakfast? — this list of dee-licious, energizing, kick-in-the-pants morning recipes is for you.
The Perfect Tofu Scramble
As far as we’re concerned, Hot For Food’s Perfect Tofu Scramble is a vegan brunch staple. If you’re still on the fence about tofu, give this breakfast without eggs a try. We had the pleasure of interviewing Hot For Food’s Lauren Toyota recently, so trust us when we tell you — this fabulous lady knows vegan recipes!
Purple Power Smoothie Bowl
Not only does it have a cool name, this Purple Power Smoothie Bowl provides that punch of protein we’re all looking for in a vegan breakfast. It’s also thick, fruity, and full of antioxidants and whole foods that will keep you full all morning. Plus, it tastes kind of like dessert, so you’ve got to love that! Our favorite part of this recipe is how creative you can get with toppings. We love to up the crunch factor with this homemade sugar free breakfast granola.
The Ultimate Vegan Breakfast Burrito
These Vegan Breakfast Burritos are the ultimate hangover cure. They don’t contain beans, so they’re easier on the tummy. Instead they use a tofu scramble base and mix in coconut bacon, hashbrowns, salsa, guac, and Daiya cheese. In the realm of vegan breakfast ideas, this is about as close as it gets to greasy spoon. Who says breakfast without eggs means saying sayanara to burritos?
Chocolate Overnight Oatmeal Smoothie
This is our Monday morning go-to vegan recipe. The night-before prep is quick and easy and when you wake up, all you have to do is grab and go. This breakky smoothie is full of healthy, fiber-rich whole foods like oats, almond butter, and chia seeds, that will keep you full for hours.
Crispy Hash Brown Haystacks
Easy peasy, quick, and delicious. Cripsy Hash Brown Haystacks are all of these things and more. Seven ingredients, a food processor, and a muffin tin are all you need to whip up this mouth-watering vegan brunch recipe by Minimalist Baker. She recommends serving them alongside a tofu scramble and we couldn’t agree more.
