The vegan breakfast can be delicious, nutritious and quick and easy to prepare! That’s right, you don’t have to feel unhappy and deprived when you eat your vegan breakfast – there are so many tasty options that you can choose from! Below are some healthy and easy recipe and food ideas that you can make for your own vegan breakfasts in the mornings!
Vegan Breakfast Juices
Why not for starters squeeze a couple of oranges or lemons into a glass to make your own fresh juice? Or, if you have a juicer, you can juice a really healthy concoction to get you feeling energized for the day! Try the following juice recipe: 3 apples, 2 carrots, knob of ginger, 1 beetroot and 4 celery stalks. If you have a really good juicer, you should be able to make your juice in under 10 or 15 minutes. Add more apple for a sweeter juice or more ginger for a zestier juice. If you simply want fruit in your juice, you can omit the vegetables and juice your favorite selection of fruits such as apples, pineapple, papaya and berries. Once again, adding a little knob of ginger will make your fruit juice deliciously zesty!
Most people around the world enjoy a cup of coffee or tea to accompany their breakfast. Vegans are no exception! Have your coffee or tea black, or with some soy milk or rice milk. If you like it a little sweet, use stevia, brown sugar, molasses, maple syrup or agave nectar. Be wary though of normal refined sugars, as these can be filtered with bone char, a non-vegan substance.
Vegan Non-Cooked Breakfasts!
If you aren’t in the mood for cooking breakfast, there are many other super easy vegan breakfast options that you can choose from. Accompany your coffee and tea with some toast (vegan supermarket or health shop bread) with jam, vegan chocolate spread (from your health shop), or simply vegan “butter” (soy spread). Otherwise, simply have a bowl of vegan cereal (there are many choices and brands available nowadays) with soy milk, rice milk, or coconut milk. Or just have some freshly chopped in-season fruit, perhaps topped with some soy or coconut-milk yoghurt and a handful of walnuts or almonds.
Vegan Cooked Breakfasts
You can easily make some vegan pancakes for your breakfast – if you have a little time to spare. And don’t worry, your pancakes will taste delicious, even without eggs and dairy milk! For an easy vegan pancake recipe, your ingredients will be: 1 cup flour, 1 Tbsp sugar, 2 Tbsp baking powder, pinch of salt, 1 Cup soy/rice milk, and 2 Tbsp oil. Stir your dry ingredients together in a bowl, then add your wet ingredients and mix all together until smooth. Spoon your pancake mixture in large spoonful’s into a hot, oiled frying pan, and flip your pancakes when bubbles appear. They normal take approximately 2 minutes to cook per side. And voila! Serve your pancakes with agave nectar, maple syrup or molasses, and top with fresh fruit! Delicious!
You can also hunt for some delicious healthy vegan cake recipes, muffin recipes, or vegan slice recipes – which you can eat for breakfast if you fancy! You can find so many recipes online nowadays, so you should have no trouble finding some really delicious vegan cake and muffin recipes. There’s nothing better than enjoying a nice slab of cake and a cup of coffee for breakfast – not every day of course, but just sometimes. It really makes life so good.
You can also cook for yourself the vegan ‘bacon and eggs’ breakfast, which is actually quite fast and easy to cook. Purchase some mock bacon from your local supermarket and cook it as per packet directions. Also purchase some tofu mix to make “scrambled eggs” – add some onion and garlic to boost the taste. Fry some tomatoes, and put some bread in the toaster. Now you can indulge in your bacon and eggs, toast and gourmet fried tomatoes! Hey, whoever said that being vegan was boring was so wrong!
