Vegan Breakfast

Finding something to eat in the morning can be a difficult task for vegans as many morning breakfast choices are made with eggs! The following ten delicious breakfasts are vegan friendly and most importantly, not made with eggs.

#10: Southwest Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash

“This breakfast contains a wide array of nutrition and although hearty, it’s also incredibly energizing. Rather than weighing you down or giving you a case of post-brunch drowsiness, this breakfast will fuel you far into your day.” – Blissful Basil

#9: Tofu Scramble

“Hear me out! Tofu comes from a bean. A soybean. Yep. Why people have such aversion to tofu, but not to chickpeas, or kidney beans, or whatever kind of bean they like is beyond me. It’s just a lovely product that can be flavoured and loved to become all sorts of fabulous textures and flavours.” – It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken

#8: Double Chocolate Chip Strawberry Oat Waffles

“This pure chocolate indulgence is the perfect healthy weekend breakfast waffle! Made with clean, healthy ingredients, and you can freeze leftover waffles for later!” – Vegetarian Gastronomy

#7: Vegetarian Breakfast Casserole

“I remember I once had a vegetarian breakfast casserole with hash browns and wanted to make something similar for the brunch we had last weekend. The casserole I remember was loaded with cheese and eggs, so it wasn’t exactly vegan. But no problem, we vegans are creative, right? So of course I had to try to veganize it. Instead of the eggs, I used a mixture of silken tofu, turmeric, paprika powder, and chives.” – Vegan Heaven

#6: Vegan Breakfast Sandwich

“Well, the main ingredient is tofu and I know what y’all are thinking, but don’t worry, this isn’t some boring tofu breakfast. This tofu is seasoned to perfection, fried until it’s slightly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. It’s nestled in your favorite toasty bread with gooey-melty cheese, fresh greens, crisp pickles, creamy mayo, and sweet & tangy ketchup.” – Vegan Huggs

#5: Apple Buckwheat Pancakes with Coconut Caramel Apples

“So I know pancakes. I know they absolutely MUST be airy and fluffy; yet filling. You have to want to curl up in a ball and take a nap on your pancakes because they are the softest and warmest little pillows you’ve ever held — and then feast on them. So at first I feared “how in the world will vegan pancakes be as they should?”. Imagine how thrilled I was to find out after a few experiments that they are even better. Just as soft, just as fluffy. AND guilt-free. On top of that, these pancakes are also gluten-free, so if you happen to be intolerant to gluten — rejoice!” – Cocoon Cooks

#4: Easy Vegan Chickpea Omelette

chickpea omelette

“Many years ago, one of my favorite hearty breakfasts was a fluffy buckwheat flake porridge and an omelette. Today, I love the same breakfast, but instead of an egg omelette, I make a chickpea omelette. I have seen many different versions of this dish. Some versions recommend adding baking powder and some vinegar. To be honest, I really don’t like this method. I find the omelette to be much more tastier and with better texture when you don’t use any raising agents. I love how this completely gluten-free yet super filling protein rich omelette can be both a breakfast or a lunch or dinner. I’m sure it’s a perfect camping food, too!” – Vegan Sandra

#3: Sun-dried Tomato and Asparagus Vegan Quiche

A fresh and seasonal Sun-Dried Tomato and Asparagus Vegan Quiche made with sun-dried tomatoes and asparagus for a hearty breakfast, lunch, or dinner.” – My Darling Vegan

#2: “Shamrock” Vegan Breakfast Sandwich

“Creamy chipotle jalapeno sauce drizzles and melts over top tender avocado, a pepper-chipotle spiced vegan sausage patty, buttery pan-toasted pepitas. All on a toasted English muffin. This is a greens-loaded sandwich to start your day” – Healthy Happy Life

#1: Vegan Mushroom Bacon Breakfast Toast

Mushroom Bacon Breakfast Toast is a plant-based, gluten-free breakfast recipe that will transform the way you think of toast for breakfast! A vegan bacon substitute, made from smoky mushrooms, sits on a bed of hummus with tomato and fresh herbs. This healthy hummus toast is full of protein, fiber, and flavor. ” – Cotter Crunch

#8: One Skillet Keto Chicken with Bacon Mushroom Gravy

“The only difference between the keto & paleo version is the keto, lower carb version uses cream cheese to thicken the gravy and the paleo version uses arrowroot powder mixed with butter to thicken it.

“So what’s the trick to a keto chicken pot pie? Oh, just a little thing called Fat head dough! If you’ve never tried it before then you need to jump on that band wagon ASAP! I was so skeptical when I first read the ingredient list. After all, how could a dough made of basically just cheese and almond flour be any good, and how would it not make you sick?” – Domestically Creative

#1: Keto Friendly Chicken Piccata Meatballs

“I have found that sour cream is a great ingredient to use instead of eggs or bread crumbs when trying to combine ground chicken. It works well if your meat is very cold and you work quickly.” – The Daley Plate
