Vegan Breakfast Ideas

I have been having similar breakfasts during the working week since I went vegan in January, BUT I wanted to share a couple of other ideas (for work and on weekends) for those who are interested:

Peanut Overnight Oats (serves 1)

Ingredients:

1 cup oats

1 cup dairy free milk alternative

1 tsp crunchy peanut butter

1 tsp (homemade) jam

1 tsp chia seeds

Method:

Mix everything together in a jar and leave in the fridge overnight. Enjoy the next morning. If it looks too stodgy then add a bit more milk!

 

Vegan Cooked Brekkie (serves 4)

Ingredients:

250g white mushrooms, halved

1 massive avocado

200g cherry tomatoes, halved

bread of your choice, sliced

2 cans baked beans

200g falafel (enough for 3 or 4 each)

Method:

  1. Start roasting the cherry tomatoes in a fan assisted oven at 180C, then pop in the falafel to warm through too.
  2. Add the chopped mushrooms to a frying pan with spraying oil and keep frying until golden.
  3. Add the bread slices to the toaster (make sure you time everything well!)
  4. Empty baked beans into a microwaveable bowl and blitz for 3 or 4 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, slice the avocado and plate up.
  6. Plate everything up altogether and enjoy!

 

Blueberry French Toast (serves 2)

Ingredients:

2 slices of white bread

1.5 tbsp. maple syrup

75g blueberries

1/2 tsp cinnamon

50ml dairy free alternative milk

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp golden caster sugar

grapeseed oil for frying

Method:

  1. Slowly heat maple syrup and blueberries in a frying pan. This should start to thicken up.
  2. Mix the milk, cinnamon and vanilla in a small bowl.
  3. Dip a slice of bread into the milky mixture, shake off excess and fry the bread in a new frying pan with the grapeseed oil. Until both sides and golden.
  4. Spoon over the blueberry mixture and enjoy warm!

 

Banana & Peanut Butter Bagel (serves 1)

Ingredients:

Plain bagel/or bagel of your choice, halved

1 tbsp. crunchy peanut butter

1 tsp chia seeds

1 ripe banana, mashed

Method:

  1. Quite simply, toast both sides of the bagel and spoon over the peanut butter and sprinkle with chia seeds.
  2. Top with the mashed banana.
