42 vegan breakfast recipes

On Zucker&Jagdwurst you will find so many recipes that it can sometimes be difficult to find exactly the right one for the moment. For that, we've categorized our recipes, but if you want to be more specific, you'll hopefully find the right dish in our recipe collections – for example if you're looking for soy-free desserts, hangover food, and what to eat when you have a cold. You can find all recipe collections here.

I'm a huge fan of a long and extensive breakfast: from a stack of pancakes, fresh fruits, scrambled tofu to oven-fresh bread rolls. If I had the time, I would have breakfast all day long! But it was a long way to go until I was able to prepare all my favorite dishes from "the past" (when I wasn't vegan) as plant-based ones that would taste the same, or even better.

Especially at the beginning, when you start with a different and new diet, it can be difficult and confusing how to replace certain ingredients or how to prepare your favorite dish now. Luckily, we have a recipe for almost every breakfast classic to show you how it's done! Whether you crave something hearty, sweet, simple or more fancy: we hope you find some inspiration to take your Sunday breakfast to the next level.

1. Vegan Pancakes

R456 Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes with Oats

2. Vegan Waffles

R340 Crispy Potato Waffles

Waffles are something like the little sister of pancakes. Although they are often associated with children's birthdays, they are actually an incredibly versatile breakfast option. You don't even need flour for all of these – some are prepared with rolled oats or potatoes. Our wish for the future: eat more waffles.

3. Oats

R302 Tahini Granola

Rolled oats are not only incredibly healthy, but also quite versatile. Whether you use them crispy in granola, buttery soft in porridge, or as a topping for soy yoghurt – it's always worth having a well-filled jar of rolled oats at home. You can differantiate between softe and crunchy rolled oats. The former is ideal for porridge and oatmeal. The crunchy ones are your best option for homemade granola.

4. classic “egg“ recipes

R64 Vegan Scrambled Tofu

When going vegan, many people miss their hard-boiled egg, scrambled eggs, or omelette for breakfast. Whatever it is, with kala namak at your side, there is nothing stopping you from getting closer to the taste of egg again. Kala namak is an Indian sulphur salt that tastes and smells like egg by nature. You can use it to turn a simple pan-fried tofu into an omelette - it's like magic!
