8 Vegan Brunches That Prove the Meal Isn’t All About Eggs

Brunch may be synonymous with eggs, bacon, and buttery hollandaise sauce, but sometimes it’s nice to enjoy a brunch

entrée that doesn’t make you want to lie down afterward. These vegan brunch options are lighter twists on classic brunch dishes, but still make your Saturday meal feel pretty indulgent.

Let’s be honest. You can’t go to any brunch spot without seeing some kind of avocado toast on the menu. And vegans and meat eaters love it equally. This version stands out because it’s topped with three simple ingredients: crunchy radishes, lime juice, and poppy seeds. 

Gluten-free? Check. Dairy-free? Check. Egg-free? Check. Good-looking, great-tasting doughnuts? Check. Now all vegans can have their doughnuts… and eat them too.

Here’s a little secret: You can eat quinoa for breakfast. And another secret: Caramelized fruit tastes like candy without all of the added sugar. This recipe combines already sweet peaches with some maple syrup, cinnamon, and a touch of lemon juice. After eating this vegan breakfast bowl, you’ll never want boring old oatmeal again.

Most vegans swear that tempeh bacon tastes just like the real thing. Made by marinating and cooking thinly sliced tempeh strips in maple syrup, smoked paprika, chipotle powder, and cumin, tempeh bacon already sounds so delicious that you probably won’t even care if it tastes like bacon. Thrown on sweet potato hash, this is the heartiest vegan brunch option on the menu.

Sometimes brunch happens at 2 p.m., and your taste for breakfast has long passed. Welcome, vegan cauliflower tacos! This recipe takes gluten-free and vegan cauliflower rice and subs it for ground meat in a delicious vegan taco made for your weekend brunch.

Brunch really isn’t complete without some form of pancakes, but a traditional short stack is made with milk and eggs. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to make vegan pancakes with soy milk and chia seeds. Plus, this recipe is topped with two of the all-time best vegan ingredients—a mixture of maple syrup and peanut butter. 

No vegan brunch would be complete without some form of chia pudding. Not only are they a nutritional powerhouse, but when combined with nondairy milk, chia seeds quickly expand and form a pudding-like consistency. You can top your chia seed pudding with almost any combo of fruit and nuts, and you can get really crazy and try making it with different flavored milks.

Crumbled tofu has the same look and texture of scrambled eggs, but the taste isn’t always the same. This recipe rectifies that problem with the addition of black salt, which has a sulfuric eggy smell and taste. We know, mind blown. Add it to the same pan as veggies and spices, and you have a traditional savory scramble, made vegan.
