Yay! It’s Vegan MoFo-time! Of course we can’t leave this special month behind as a new blog, so we thought we’d take a jump start and join this Vegan Month of Food.
Having breakfast as a vegan may seem complicated at first, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll notice that there are so many delicious options to start your day.
There are several things that are perfect for breakfast, like granola, oats, smoothies, juices, pancakes, scrambled tofu, or a full on English breakfast. If you buy your granola at the supermarket, just check the ingredients and you’ll notice that there are some vegan options. You can add some soy milk, hazelnut milk, almond milk, or actually any plant-based milk. Of course there’s also soy yoghurt, which compliments the crunchy granola at its best.
Or oats… What can’t you do with oats?! You can make granola yourself based on oats, or you can simply cook them in some plant milk and add some syrup, raisins, banana and coconut. The easiest option is to make overnight oats, you simply put everything you want in your oatmeal in a bowl and place it in the fridge. In the morning it’s wonderfully creamy and ready to eat!
Instead of oats you can also use quinoa to make a porridge or even couscous. Have you checked out our couscous fruit porridge?
Another delicious thing to do with oats is to bake them in the oven. You can simply use the same ingredients as you would for cooking oatmeal, but put them in the oven. The top will get a bit crusty and the inside will be delicious and smooth. There are also a lot of fruity options, like our oven baked apple oatmeal.
Here in Belgium most people eat bread for breakfast. We aren’t all fans of that, but you can sure eat some toast with jam once in a while (or with homemade vegan nutella.. so good it feels like a sin!). And if you have some left-over bread it’s perfect to make our bread pudding with fruit or make some vegan French toast!
We’re already hungry for the next morning, but let’s continue.
Some of our bloggers really looooove smoothies. Like this peanut butter banana smoothie, it’s so addictive that we try to save them for the weekends. Or a healthier option is this blueberry smoothie, it’s equally delicious and a great start to your day.
We hope you are inspired by our delicious breakfasts. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
