5 Savory Vegan Breakfast Ideas 

Healthy eating

No more eggs and bacon.

Since taking part in Veganuary l have been challenging myself to make all kinds of recipes to keep things fresh and interesting. I have never been an oatmeal and fruit kind of girl so l have been looking for vegan savory breakfast ideas that are tasty and easy to make. Here are a few of the recipes l have on rotation this January.

Toast Toppings Galore

Is there anything more versatile than toasted bread ready to be topped with all sorts of delicious condiments? Nope! It might sound like a boring option but toast has endless possibilities if you put your creativity hat on. It can be topped with:

Avocado with lemon, salt, pepper and chilli flakes. 

Mushrooms, spinach, greens, salt and pepper to taste.

Ah, the good old toast and beans option never goes out of style.

Tomato or basil pesto over a layer of hummus.

Roasted or tinned tomatoes with vegan parmesan or pesto. 

Scrambled Tofu

I add nutritional yeast to give it a savory, cheesy taste. Use black salt if you want the egg taste although it will never really taste like eggs but don’t write it off on the first try. Greatist has a great recipe and l usually just use what l have in my cupboards.

Mexican style breakfast burritos 

Get a whole-wheat wrap and go to town with the add-ins and you have a super filling meal than can be eaten any time of the day. The condiments can be anything from scrambled tofu, black beans, homemade salsa, vegan sour cream, avocado, mushrooms, capsicum and salad mix.

Savoury Waffles

Waffles are a quintessential breakfast and brunch food. To make them savory add vegan cheese, jalapeño and spring onion in the batter then top it with avocado. The minimalist Baker also does a mean vegan version which l usually do when l’m feeling fancy.

Chickpea Pancakes

So many people are sleeping on chickpea flour.  It has so many health benefits and it pays to make the switch. Unlike self raising flour, chickpea flour is high in protein, fibre and micronutrients, while being low in carbohydrates and calories. To make chickpea pancakes, just substitute the amount of all purpose flour in the recipe with the chickpeas flour.

Important note: While chickpea flour is good for some things it doesn’t contain gluten. This could be a problem for it baked goods that need to rise because won’t rise as much, and its denser texture means it absorbs more liquid than all-purpose flour.

P.S sprinkle cashew cheese on that shit.
