One of the questions I get asked most often is “What can I eat for breakfast on a vegan diet?” So I’m here to answer – so many things. Some of my favorite easy vegan breakfast ideas (no recipe needed) are:

  • Toast with chocolate nut butter or flavored jams.
  • Scrambled tofu with fresh veggies like bell peppers and mushrooms.
  • Fruit (fresh or dried fruits) – my favorite is this dried mango!
  • Vegan Breakfast burritos – roll up black beans, fresh veggies, and scrambled tofu in a warm tortilla

See – just because you’re vegan doesn’t mean your breakfast options are limited. So to give you some inspiration, I’ve rounded up the best vegan breakfast recipes from Best Food & Cooking and my favorite blogger friends.

I’m talking hearty breakfasts here – vegan pancakes, breakfast burritos, breakfast sandwiches, vegan waffles, tofu scrambles, vegan french toast, plant-based muffins,meat-free bacon, protein bars, smoothies, and overnight oats.
