These vegan brunch recipes are perfect for weekend gatherings with friends or a quick late-morning meal!
There’s everything from sweet vegan smoothies and crumbles to savory quiches and casseroles.
Meat lovers usually get thrown off by the mere idea of vegan dishes.
But as a major carnivore, I can say with confidence that these vegan dishes are out of the ordinary.
They’re not bland, they don’t have weird textures, and they’re surprisingly delicious.
In fact, if you’re still on the fence about going vegan, I’m pretty sure these brunch ideas will make the decision an easy one.
Good food doesn’t have to be bad for you, and I have 30 vegan brunch recipes to prove it.
Whether you like to start your weekend with something sweet, savory, or a combination of both, I have you covered.
These vegan crepes are light, soft, and the perfect blank canvas for fillings and toppings.
And while the thought of crepes for brunch seems so fancy, these French pancakes are actually easy to make.
In fact, this vegan recipe even calls for fewer ingredients than traditional crepes. And they cook faster, too.
It gives you even more reason to try out veganism!
And whether you like them sweet with fresh fruit or jam or filled with savory stews and sauces, these crepes will gladly accommodate.
Any diet that allows you to eat chocolate is a great diet. It’s not just about your physical health, but your overall well-being, as well.
When it comes to feeding the soul, nothing beats the comforting combo of chocolate and pancakes.
These flapjacks are tall, fluffy, and will burst with rich, warm chocolate when you sink your teeth into them.
Make them extra by garnishing them with banana slices. We all know chocolate and bananas make a beautiful pairing.
My tastebuds jump up and down with excitement whenever I see something this vibrant and beautiful.
I look at this heirloom tomato tart and I already know it’s beyond delicious.
It’s a hearty quiche with a creamy tofu filling resting on a crispy pie crust.
Colorful heirloom tomatoes are nestled in the filling, making the dish look almost too pretty to eat.
What’s more important is the flavors, though, and this tart definitely delivers.
With the sweetness of the tomatoes, the creaminess of the tofu filling, and the crispness of the crust, this tart is *chef’s kiss*.
This tofu quiche is packed with colorful vegetables and delectable flavors.
I know the idea of using tofu in place of eggs sounds a little too extreme, but it’s actually a pretty good sub.
Tofu, on its own, is pretty much flavorless, so as long as you season it well, the flavor won’t be a problem.
When pureed with hummus and baked in the oven, it’s able to mimic the creaminess of eggs. Very impressive!
If you’re a vegan with a major sweet tooth, these blueberry pie bars will be your newest best friend.
They’re soft and chewy with a crumbly crumble on top. The blueberries give it a perfect mix of sweet and tart.
Do yourself a favor: triple the recipe, eat as many as you can, and freeze the rest.
This way, you’ll have these bars ready for when the next craving strikes.
And believe me, you’ll crave them again and again.
If you imagine vegan waffles to be floppy and soggy, then this recipe will not disappoint you.
These buttermilk vegan waffles are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
They taste just so much like traditional waffles, you might not even notice they’re vegan.
They’re easy to make, to boot. You won’t even need to head out for ingredients as they’re all already probably in your pantry.
Serve them with a drizzle of maple syrup and fresh fruit slices for a hearty vegan brunch.
Give the usual green and berry smoothies a break and say hello to this sweet potato smoothie!
You’ll fall in love with this thick and creamy drink!
It’s just like a sweet potato pie that you can sip. If you’re in the mood for fall flavors, this brunch idea has your name on it.
As an added bonus, this smoothie is hella healthy. It’s loaded with vitamins, fiber, antioxidants, and all that jazz. What a treat.
Avocado toast is what I like to call the millennial’s choice.
While some roll their eyes over the seemingly unexplainable food trend, I perfectly the craze.
It’s simply mashed or sliced avocado on top of toast, yet, it’s crazy good. The creamy topping paired with crisp toast is simply delicious.
I also love how you don’t need much to give it flavor. All it takes is a pinch of salt to enhance its taste even more.
The fact that avocados are super nutritious is just a plus.
Whether it’s the golden hue or the sweet, juicy flavor, there’s something about ripe mangoes that makes me feel giddy.
Whenever they’re in season, I always make it a point to buy baskets upon baskets.
It doesn’t matter if their lifespan is pretty short. They’ll all disappear pretty quickly, anyway.
This smoothie is one of the reasons why.
It’s thick and creamy with a special kind of sweetness only mangoes can offer.
This smoothie is a hit with my entire family, from the old to the young.
In the mood for a classic fall dessert, but too lazy to make an entire apple pie? That’s what these apple pie crumble bars are for.
Soft, chewy, and crumbly on top, these bars are like a cross between a pie, a crisp, and a strudel.
So if you can’t decide among these desserts, make these bars instead. Problem solved.
It’s also shockingly easy to make and takes just 15 minutes of prep and 45 minutes of baking. Not bad for a 3-in-1 dessert!
Veggie burgers usually get a bad rap for not tasting like beef burgers at all.
But the thing is, you really shouldn’t expect a veggie burger to taste like real meat.
Sadly, food science and technology have yet to discover a plant-based recipe to truly mimic the taste of meat.
However, in case you’re looking for a vegan burger that actually tastes amazing, this recipe won’t disappoint.
In fact, the patties in this recipe are actually sturdy enough to grill, giving them a deep, smoky flavor.
Banana bread, to me, is the epitome of comfort food.
The smell of this bread wafting through the air as it bakes in the oven gives me comfort and joy.
And even though it’s purely plant-based, meaning it doesn’t contain eggs and milk, it’s still mind-blowingly delicious.
Despite the absence of dairy, this banana bread is still moist, tender, and full of flavor.
13. Vegan Sausages
When you’ve already bought and tried every vegan sausage out there, this recipe is the logical next step.
Unlike most vegan sausages, these homemade ones are not tough and rubbery at all!
Also, they’re nowhere anywhere near as expensive as store-bought sausages.
14. Vegan Fruit Tart
These mini fruit tarts are almost too cute to eat, but too good not to.
These tarts have a sweet cream cheese filling nestled in a buttery shortbread crust.
Sweet glazed berries go on top for the perfect finish.
The combination of cream cheese and fresh berries makes these tarts equally decadent and refreshing.
You’ll love how they’re rich and light at the same time.
Two main ingredients make up the custard of a traditional French toast: eggs and milk.
That said, you’re probably wondering right about now how on earth you can pull off a French toast that’s vegan.
Answer: ground flax seeds to mimic the sticky consistency of eggs, cornstarch to thicken the custard, and soy milk to enrich it.
You’d be surprised at how phenomenal these plant-based subs work!
These French toasts are so perfect, no one will notice they’re vegan.
If you’re looking for something hearty to feed a hungry vegan crowd, this casserole is the solution.
It’s primarily made of golden hash browns. So from this alone, everything’s pretty much resolved.
Joining the party is red bell peppers and spinach. They not only add nutrition to the dish, but lovely colors as well.
Drenched in a cheese-free cheese sauce and baked to perfection, this casserole is a sure winner.
17. Vegan Burritos
My go-to burrito filling is succulent and scrumptious steak. I won’t say no to these vegan burritos, though.
With a hearty and tasty filling of rice, black beans, corn, salsa, and spices, these burritos are so extremely scrumptious that you won’t miss the meat.
Care to make it more interesting? Top your burritos with vegan sour cream and vegan cheese.
18. Yogurt Parfait
This vegan yogurt parfait looks as pretty and tastes just as good as the regular kind.
With layers of plant-based coconut yogurt, granola, and fresh berries, it’s a beautiful mix of tart, sweet, and nutty flavors.
You’ll love the textural contrast between the crunchy granola, juicy berries, and creamy yogurt, to boot.
From the colors to the flavors to the textures, this parfait gets a perfect 10.
19. Vegan Latkes
These latkes are golden, crunchy, and extremely addictive! Consider yourself warned.
In case you’re not familiar with this Jewish snack, a latke is a fritter typically made with shredded potatoes.
Think potato pancakes or hash browns, Jewish style.
Serve these latkes with a dollop of applesauce or vegan sour cream, and you’re ready to dig in.
There’s an omelette made from chickpeas? It doesn’t seem to make sense, but trust me, you’ll get on board on the first bite.
This omelette isn’t only protein-packed but also manages to mimic the flavor and texture of real eggs.
It’s soft and fluffy with a wonderful, savory taste.
Turmeric is added to the mix for a punch of earthiness. It also lends a nice yellow hue to the dish.
While very healthy and hearty, oatmeal isn’t exactly the most exciting dish to eat for brunch.
But with this recipe, you can turn the boring oatmeal into a scrumptious, mouthwatering bowl.
Enriched with coconut meal and topped with delectable things like berries, nuts, seeds, and honey, this dish is happiness in a bowl.
Customize the toppings to your heart’s content.
22. Vegan Sandwiches
These vegan sandwiches are as delectable as they are colorful.
They have layers upon layers of crunchy vegetables, and every bite gives you nothing but delight.
What makes it a standout, though, isn’t the vegetables but the dressing.
A combination of chickpeas, vegan mayonnaise, celery, and lemon creates the creamiest, most flavorful spread!
Buddha bowls normally have rice at the base and some type of meat on top.
This bowl has neither of the two, yet it’ll nourish you with all the carbs, fiber, and protein you need in a meal.
Not to mention, it looks gorgeous and tastes amazing.
Featuring chickpeas, vegetables, and a creamy maple tahini sauce, this Buddha bowl has a perfect blend of sweet and savory flavors.
24. Homemade Bagels
If you’ve never tried homemade bagels before, consider this the sign to do so.
I’m telling you, homemade bagels are a hundred times better than store-bought.
They’re also cheaper and shockingly easy to make.
Oh, and they’re also vegan and dairy-free. When the package is this complete, what more can you ask for?
When it comes to blueberry muffins, it doesn’t matter whether they’re vegan or not.
Blueberries have the power to give flavor and impeccable texture to any baked good.
Because of their juiciness, blueberries can make any baked good ridiculously moist. Such is the case with these vegan muffins.
Even though they’re dairy-free, they still manage to be top-notch, and it’s all thanks to blueberries.
I don’t think even the most health-conscious person can say no to donuts. This dessert is nothing short of a gift from heaven.
You’d think because they’re vegan that they’d be tough, rubbery, and lack flavor.
But nope, these cinnamon sugar donuts are moist, fluffy, and seriously scrumptious.
The only problem is trying to limit yourself to just one. Good luck with that.
27. Cinnamon Rolls
Here’s another brunch/dessert item that’s impossible to say no to.
Once you get a whiff of these cinnamon rolls, you’ll say, “the diet starts tomorrow.”
These rolls are sweet, moist, and oh-so-decadent.
From the bread to the filling to the topping, each component is a heavenly delight.
28. Tofu Scramble
Yes, you can use tofu to make scrambled eggs!
It looks exactly the same, and the flavor and texture aren’t too bad, either.
It’s rich, creamy, savory, and everything you want scrambled eggs to be.
These scones are tender and moist with a subtle, crispy exterior. It’s not just the textures you’ll love, but the flavors, too.
Studded with blueberries, these scones burst with sweet and refreshing flavors in every bite.
The glaze on top adds a bit of sweetness, which complements well with the richness of the scones.
30. Vegan Tacos
Skip the ground beef or shredded chicken and fill your tacos with black beans instead!
They’re a much healthier option, and believe it or not, they taste awesome.
