Default Vegan Breakfast Ideas?

I know that there's only a handful of vegans on here, but would love anyone's input!

I'm vegan and generally have lots of healthy ideas for meal, except breakfast! (I have many UN-healthy vegan breakfast ideas, which I won't list... ahem.)

My main problem is that I'm trying to eat less bread (so not toast) because it gives me indigestion (boo!) and also trying to limit my soy intake (because I eat it way too much and have read some negative research about it).

I sometimes do a scrambled tofu, or sautee tomatoes, garlic and herbs and have them with hummus on crackers. But I need some new ideas! Help!

Have you ever tried a smoothie? I use almond milk, fruit, and ice..I also eat leftovers for breakfast. (like bean and rice bowl with veggies and salsa) I guess I don't really eat traditional breakfasts often and I am not always 100% vegan, but I do try. Of course, many people eat the steel rolled oats with a few nuts and fruit. I think it all depends on taste.

Oatmeal (you can add cinnamon, chopped nuts and chopped apples)
Chia pudding (I'd google for various recipes)
Chickpea omelette
chickpea pancake

Alternatively, lots of people eat things they eat at other meals for breakfast

Also you could look into making breakfast muffins.

And here is a list of a lot of breakfast type recipes

Thanks, guys!

strongerlizzy - I have, I do love smoothies, but I just seem to get really hungry about an hour after I've had one But I will keep trying.. maybe if I had a small one with something else it'd keep me full?

nelie - OMG, chickpea omelette! That's amazing - I will definitely try it! And thanks for the link! I love breakfast muffins.. I tried to make them last week and followed the recipe exactly, but there was way too much bicarb, so they were a fail But I will keep trying!

Thanks so much

We do oatmeal lot. I like overnight oats best.

I love potatoes for breakfast. I always cook up large batches of potatoes and reheat them in the toaster oven.

Any leftovers can be breakfast, too! I don't always eat "breakfast food" in the morning.

Default soup recipe -I like this one

White bean and Vegetable soup
this savory soup recipe is from Heather McDougall, the director of the McDougall Program in Santa Rosa, California. Heather also develops healthy, family-friendly recipes for the McDougall Newsletter.

Ingredients, Serves 4-6

4 cups vegetable broth
2 cups water
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, sliced
2-15 ounce cans white cannellini or navy beans, rinsed and drained
1 can fire roasted red tomatoes
2 cups kale, de-stemmed and chopped
1 cup gluten-free elbow macaroni, uncooked
juice of one lemon
salt and pepper to taste


Add cup broth and saute onion and carrot on medium-high heat until soft, about 5 minutes.
Add remaining broth and water to large saucepan.
Add beans and tomatoes. Simmer for about 20 minutes.
With a bean masher or a hand held blender push through the soup to create a thicker consistency, about 10 mashes or blends.
Add pasta, cook for 2 minutes.
Add the kale and cook for about 5 minutes more.
Remove from heat and add lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.

Regarding the morning smoothie...I add protein powder (you can find vegan options) and I also add flax seed oil, so the fat helps keep me full. You can also sneak avocado into the smoothie for added fat...or chia seeds. I hope that helps.

My favorite thing for breakfast is just oatmeal with cinnamon, which helps regulate blood sugar.

On Hungry Healthy Happy (on FB), she's been doing 365 days of veggies, where she have veggies for breakfast every day. Sometimes it's just dinner leftovers. I've been trying to do oatmeal every day. I usually slice up a banana and add a bit of agave and cinnamon. Sometimes pecans. And I use almond or cashew milk.

I eat potatoes for breakfast, roasted or cooked in my oil-free fryer. No fat, just seasoning. I usually serve veggies alongside, kale or some other steamed vegetable.

I love oatmeal but it simply doesn't hold me over the way taters do. Sweet breakfasts tend to trigger a sugar craving, so I typically stick to savory.

I really like overnight oats with almond milk. I like to top it with some fruit, agave, and cinnamon.

I also like to eat rice for breakfast. When I cook rice for dinner, I cook a lot of extra to have for leftovers. For breakfast I'll heat it up in the microwave, then add a spoonful of my favorite jam and some fruit. It's so good!

Is the problem with all bread or just wheat bread? I enjoy toasted 100% rye bread in the mornings, very good carbs, lots of fiber + a bunch of micronutrients.

In a lot of countries, breakfast is no different from other meals of the day. Vegetables, noodles, salad, etc. I've moved away from traditional western breakfasts and eat things like salad, or leftovers from the dinner before. Starting the day with a veggie heavy meal seems to give me more energy.
