What do vegans eat for breakfast? I get that question a lot. I even remember asking myself that when I first decided to go vegan and need ideas.
The first vegan breakfast-y item I ever made was banana bread. I took my mom’s recipe which is a family favorite and found substitutes for the eggs and butter. It turned out super good and I’ve since veganized a TON of other family recipes like pumpkin bread, pancakes and even breakfast sausage!
I used to love making eggs on weekend mornings when I had more time to prepare an elaborate meal. Since going vegan, tofu scramble has been my go-to for those times when I want to make a hearty breakfast meal.
It’s really versatile – you can eat it straight up with some veggies, make it into a breakfast burrito or my newest creation…a breakfast pita!
I combined tofu scramble with veggies and cashew queso to create a super satisfying plant-based breakfast that would make anyone’s mouth water. Enjoy on it’s own or maybe go all out and add some tempeh bacon!
- Prepare the tofu scramble and cashew cheese. Heat the pita in the microwave for 15 seconds or in a skillet until the edges are slightly crispy.
- Cut the pita in half and fill with the tofu scramble, cashew cheese and some chopped spinach.
- Serve with tempeh bacon.
