Easy Vegan Breakfast Ideas
Going vegan can be tough – and it’s not because the food is gross or weird, it’s simply because breaking cultural norms is difficult. The traditional breakfast here in the U.S. involves some kind of egg variation (scrambled, poached, omelet, etc) paired with a pile of greasy processed meat (bacon or sausage).
But breakfast doesn’t have to be that way, and there are so many sweet and savory breakfasts you can make that will fuel you until lunch rolls around (see this post for quick vegan LUNCH ideas.)
Once you get into the swing of things, vegan breakfast is an EXCITING time of day. Gimme all the tofu scramble, potato hash, vegan sausage, and more!
Is your mouth watering yet? Here are some really delicious, creative vegan recipes for breakfast!
I love making a breakfast hash because it’s simple, you can add pretty much any vegetable in there, and it can be prepped ahead of time. Sometimes I skip the beans and add Field Roast sausage or homemade maple seitan sausage. Add flavor with seasonings or salsa or hot sauce or…you get the idea. So good.
Fruit salad isn’t just designated for breakfast at a beach resort. You make your own beautiful bowl of fresh fruit with a creamy vegan yogurt dressing at home. This recipe calls for traditional fall flavors: pomegranates, pumpkin, apples, and grapes.
These oil-free breakfast sausages are made with pinto beans. Serve them with tofu scramble or make breakfast sandwiches out of them.
Seeking a high protein vegan breakfast recipe? Tofu scramble fits the criteria! The texture & taste is so similar to a traditional egg scramble, especially if you use kala namak salt. You can add in all of your favorite veggies or serve it alongside that potato hash up there for a complete breakfast!
Have you ever tried making seitan at home? It’s actually pretty easy – especially this recipe for meatless breakfast sausage links. I love eating them alongside tofu scramble or just a big bowl of fresh fruit. Make them ahead of time and enjoy them all week!
Baked oatmeal is the perfect weekend morning breakfast! This carrot cake version is a healthy twist on that classic dessert and omg, is it delicious.
Another great way to make vegan sausage is by using tempeh. It’s high in protein and takes on seasoning really well! I honestly can’t get enough of this sausage gravy and biscuits recipe. If you need something indulgent and comforting in the morning, it’s perfect. But you can also use this healthier gravy to lower the fat content.
A smoothie is always a quick and easy to-go vegan breakfast. Sometimes though, they just don’t hit the spot or keep you full. Sweet potatoes are super satisfying and actually taste great in a smoothie! Bake one the night before and store in the fridge so you can blend up your breakfast super fast in the morning.
