Of course, when you think of breakfast or brunch, invariably, you will think of eggs, bacon, coffee with cream and sugar. That is, you will think of foods that are the opposite of vegan. I swear to you though, a vegan brunch as familiar as your old standard of bacon, eggs, and toast with butter, is totally possible and delicious.
It wasn’t until my taste buds developed a bit that I started to enjoy quiche for the rich, savoury flavour, and the versatility, and indulgence. Then, soon after I’d learned to like quiche, I became vegan and found a substitute for quiche!
I felt pretty sorry for myself thinking that going vegan would mean giving up cheesy, carby foods, specifically at breakfast time. Thankfully, I did not have to make such a sacrifice! I’m going to share with you one of my favourites — the Vegan and Gluten-Free Herb and Cheese Biscuits. It is full of flavour, and nice and flaky, despite the wet dough…
When I was an omnivore, my favourite “lazy morning” breakfast was a poached egg on an english muffin with a slice of turkey and my matcha latte (full of milk). I still salivate thinking about it… But! I have found a few very good alternatives. This morning’s Tofu Scrambled Eggs, paired with these delicious Vegan Gluten-Free Herb and Cheese Biscuits and my Vegan Matcha Latte, breakfast had me forgetting the oozing egg yolk — thank goodness!
