What do vegans eat for breakfast? While wakey wakey, eggs and bakey may not be a thing for those on a plant-based diet, it doesn’t mean the first meal of the day can’t still be something to look forward to. Another core ingredient of many beloved breakfast recipes is cheese. If you’re new to veganism or perhaps trying flexitarian eating, you can still greet the day with an insanely delicious, outrageously awesome brekkie experience. To get that savory, creamy goodness that makes all your cheese-lovin’ dreams come true, check out these vegan breakfast ideas to make mornings tastier, every day of the week.
Weekday Vegan Breakfast Ideas
Let’s be honest. Breakfast during the week is often skipped in the mad rush to start the workday or get tiny humans where they need to go. Here are three easy recipes so yummy you’ll want to jump out of bed to get them started!
Vegan Breakfast Sandwich – this is your new go-to breakfast, whips up easily and hits the spot every single time! And while we wouldn’t call it basic, it’s just three main ingredients – toast, plant-based egg scramble and Vevan Ched-Melts. Change things up with toppings like avocado, tomato or onion, or swap in Vevan P’Jack-Melts or Mozza-Melts for alternative authentic flavors.
Green Chili Breakfast Sandwich – spice up your morning with this hearty palate-pleaser. Prepare your egg alternative any way you like, then layer on top of a toasted bun with 1–2 Tbsp. diced green chilis, a slice of Vevan P’Jack-Melts, a handful of your favorite greens and other toppings as desired. Flexitarians may enjoy adding the occasional breakfast meat like bacon or sausage for a little something extra.
Breakfast Burritos with Tofu Scramble – never make a hash of breakfast again with this vegan breakfast idea! Assemble prepared hash browns and tofu mixture in a wrap with sliced avocado and Vevan Ched-Shred, plus extras like salsa and cilantro if desired. Make this part of your meal prep when you cook and portion out the hash browns and tofu at the beginning of the week. Toss in the microwave or air fryer for a quick morning heat up and create your breakfast in minutes – that’s a wrap!

Gimme More Breakfast Pizza – take Friday night’s pizza vibes right into Saturday with this delightfully shareable recipe! As always, preheat your oven to 425°F (to achieve that perfect vegan shredded cheese melt) and prepare your new favorite pizza crust – thawed hash browns, Vevan Ched-Shred and egg alternative, plus salt and pepper. After baking the crust, top with more Ched-Shred and your other favorite toppings. Once baked, garnish with a cup of scrambled egg alternative and enjoy!
Tex Mex Chick’n & Crispy Cornmeal P’Jack Waffles – this recipe puts an end to waffling about tasty vegan breakfast ideas! While your waffles bake (mmm, we can taste that Vevan P’Jack-Shred goodness already!), prepare 8 chick’n tenders (pro tip: use the air fryer for extra crispiness). Top each waffle with a tender and all the fixins – we suggest pico de gallo with roasted corn, black beans, jalapeño, and avocado slices or guacamole. You’ll brunch so hard with this one!
Vegan Breakfast Strata – if you want breakfast “easy like Sunday morning,” prepare it the night before! Mix together sauteed veggies, bread cubes (stale or day-old is best), spices, egg and milk alternatives, and our fave ingredient – Vevan Ched-Shred. Pour into a greased 8×8 baking dish, pop in the fridge overnight, and bake for 40-50 minutes at 350°F the next day. Mornings never looked so tasty!
Inspiring Vegan Breakfast Ideas
