Ideas for Vegan Breakfast Foods

If you are serving breakfast to a group that includes vegans, or if you are considering making the switch from vegetarian to vegan, you may be wondering what vegan breakfast foods there are to choose from. In this article, we look at ideas that you can use when you are serving breakfast to a vegan.

French Toast

You may think that French toast is only for people who eat eggs, but it is one of the most popular vegan breakfast foods too. Using silken tofu and soymilk is one great way to make vegan French toast, and you can serve it with maple syrup!


There are plenty of great vegan muffin recipes out there, which use bananas or applesauce instead of eggs, and soymilk instead of dairy. Adding fruit or carob makes for great sweet treats, or you could add soy cheese, mushrooms or sun-dried tomatoes for a savory version. Definitely one of the most popular vegan breakfast foods out there!

Quinoa, Rice or Other Grains

Cooking grains like rice or quinoa with soy or another non-dairy milk, and adding raisins, fruit and syrup is a great way to make a healthy vegan porridge. Even some commercial breakfast cereals are vegan friendly, so if you are pressed for time, they will work.

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes, cooked simply by baking or boiling, then topped with soy yogurt, maple syrup and nuts are a great choice for a vegan breakfast, and they will appeal to just about everyone. Add sugar and cinnamon for a really fragrant and sweet morning meal!


Using alternatives to eggs and milk, such as apple and soymilk, can result in lovely puffy, golden brown vegan pancakes, that are sublime served with syrup, or rolled up with cinnamon, sugar, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Add fruit to the batter for an even tastier version.

There are plenty of great vegan breakfast foods out there, and everything from grilled mushrooms to commercial vegan bacon are options. Try a little experimenting, and convert your favorite non-vegan recipes and dishes.


  1. There are plenty of vegan breakfast dishes to choose from.
  2. If you do not want to make breakfast yourself, many commercial breakfast products are vegan friendly, if served with non-dairy milk.
  3. If you are serving breakfast to a vegan, and you are not a vegan yourself, remember that you cannot use any dairy, honey or animal products like eggs.
