Hello everybody, we wanna talk about breakfast and it’s important. In fact no matter whether you consider breakfast to be the most important meal of the day or just want to quickly satisfy your hunger before you leave the house: Our vegan breakfast favourites are sure to have something to suit you. Let us inspire you!
Pancakes, Porridge and more for the Sweet Tooth
Many like it sweet in the morning, but that doesn’t mean breakfast has to be unhealthy. How about a warm porridge instead of bread rolls with sweetened jam, supplemented with fruit or dried fruit, (Dried fruit can boost your fiber and nutrient intake and supply your body with large amounts of antioxidants). If you like? This is quick and also good for the stomach. A little more unusual is the baked oat porridge, which is refined with berries, vanilla and walnuts – great for a cosy Sunday morning! If you prefer to enjoy your oatmeal cold, try the classic Bircher musli. Our banana-cinnamon crunchy muesli is also delicious and ready in no time at all.
Typical American is an extensive breakfast with rich pancakes. We have put together some vegan variations for every taste: Buckwheat or chickpea pancakes are not so powerful and are also suitable for those who do not want or are not allowed to eat gluten. Of course, the classic pancakes can also be prepared in vegan. We recommend date syrup for sweetening or a homemade chocolate-nut spread. And if you are looking for a special sweet little something for breakfast, you should have a look at the breakfast muffins and the best thing about them is that they are quick on-the-go breakfast and are perfectly balanced with healthy fats, proteins, fiber, and carbs to help your balance your blood sugars and help you reap the benefits of a high protein breakfast.

- 180 ml milk
- 2 pcs. eggs, size L for crepes dough
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 tbsp sugar (or as needed)
- 20 g butter, melted

Preparation of fried egg recipe – Ideal as hearty crepes for breakfast
1. Mix wheat flour (50 g), milk (180 ml), eggs (2 pcs.), salt (1/8 TL), sugar (1/2 EL), melted butter (20 g) together in a bowl and stir until smooth with a hand blender or whisk. Then let the crepes dough rest for about 15 minutes.
2. After the resting period: Divide the crepes dough evenly into four portions.
3. Pour some butter into a pan or flat pan (approx. 22 cm diameter) and heat at medium heat.
4. Pour a portion of the crepes dough into the pan and fry for approx. 2 – 4 minutes until the underside of the crepes is lightly browned. Continue until all the crepes are done.
5. Now preheat the oven to 170 degrees on top and bottom heat.
6. Line the baking tray with baking paper.
7. Place the crepes slices on the baking tray lined with baking paper (it fits approx. 4 crepes on one tray, it is best to start from the corner of the baking tray).
8. Now first place the ham in the middle of the crepes, then carefully beat the egg over the ham and fold all four edges of the crepes to the middle, as you can see in the picture. (I use a little egg white to glue around the corner)
9. At the end sprinkle some salt and pepper on top. Continue until all the crepes slices are done.
10. Then bake the crepes in a preheated oven for approx. 9 – 12 minutes or until they have reached the desired consistency of the mirror ice.
11. When it is ready, turn off the oven, remove the crepes with fried egg and ham and prepare to serve.
12. Let it taste best warm e.g. with bread/roll/toast for breakfast or for the small hunger in between. And for the aroma, sprinkle some chopped parsley on top before serving.
Hearty Breakfast Ideas
Whether vegan liver sausage, which even meat eaters can hardly distinguish from the original, or spicy “bacon” made of rice paper – hearty toppings for breakfast bread show how varied and inventive vegan cuisine can be. Also delicious, for example on a lye roll: Artichoke cream or Ruhr tofu, the vegan alternative to scrambled eggs. If you can’t go fast enough, you can simply fry smoked tofu in slices and cover your bread with it. If you like, sprinkle some chives, salt and pepper on top and you’re done.
No one has to completely do without cheese either, because meanwhile you can find numerous vegetable cheese alternatives in the supermarket. If you don’t like them, you can make vegan cheese in your kitchen, with easily recipes that we prepared for you. Vegans din’t need to miss out on the flavour and texture that cheese add to a dish. As you know many cheese contain animal rennet, an enzyme that helps coagulation and separates the curds and whey that it say us they don’t fall into the category of vegetarian or vegan.
If you wanna make a vegan cashew cream cheese, it will better pre-soaked in water for about 4 hours beforehand to stone them. Then blend all ingredients together to the desire texture in a food processor. For firming up they need to placing in fridge about an hour. It will be great on toast, seedy crackers or stirred into pasta.
Baked beans, vegetable puree and Kedgeree are just a few of the breakfast specialities from English cuisine. Our article will tell you how to bring the British charm to your home with a “Full English Breakfast”.
English Breakfast with Fried Egg, beans and Sausage
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 4 slices bacon
- 4 English fried sausages (alternatively grilled sausages)
- 400 g canned baked beans
- 4 slices of toast bread
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
1 To serve all ingredients hot together at the end, it is best to preheat the oven to 80°C circulating air. This keeps the prepared ingredients warm while you take care of the other ingredients.
2 In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat and fry the bacon on both sides until golden brown and crispy. Place the bacon on an ovenproof plate and keep it warm in a preheated oven. You can decide for yourself how crispy the bacon should be.
3 Slowly fry the sausages in the same pan on all sides for about 10 minutes at low to medium heat until brown. The sausages also absorb smoked flavours from the bacon, which was previously in the pan.
4 Meanwhile, pour the beans into a small pot and heat them over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook for a few minutes. But be careful. The beans like to burn at the bottom of the pot.
5 As soon as the sausages are browned and cooked, they can also be kept warm in the oven. If necessary, place them briefly on a piece of kitchen roll. This removes excess fat.
6 Next, roast the toast slices in the toaster until golden brown and halve them diagonally once each time. If you like, you can spread butter on them. The triangular shape after halving is typical for an original English breakfast.
7 Now the pan should be cleaned. Rubbing it out with a piece of kitchen roll is enough. Then fry the eggs in some oil. After about 8 minutes at medium heat they are also ready.
8 To serve, take all the prepared dishes out of the oven and arrange them decoratively on preheated plates. Finally, add the crispy toast slices and serve the typical English breakfast.
Tips & tricks
The typical English breakfast is a multi-course meal. It begins with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and is rounded off with black tea, coffee and fresh milk.
To fully serve the typical English breakfast, a bowl of cereal with milk should be served after the fruit juice, before the plate is served with fried egg, beans, sausages and toast. For a light English breakfast, bacon and sausages can also be fried in a coated pan without fat.
Bread, Rolls and Other Baked Goods
The scent of freshly baked food makes breakfast particularly cosy and atmospheric. Croissants are a classic, which even vegan succeeds very well. Varied alternatives to rolls from the bakery are the Blackberry rolls and the sweet fruit rolls with dates. Nut muse is an excellent accompaniment. Of course, traditional marmalades from the supermarket, which are practically always vegan, are also suitable.
And the bread? Of course, this also tastes particularly good when homemade. You can find our best recipes for farmhouse bread, wholemeal bread and co. here.

Drinks and Smoothies
Tea and coffee are the undisputed classics on the breakfast table. A fine alternative is golden milk with turmeric and ginger – great for the immune system! If you’re more in the mood for refreshment, especially in summer, you can enjoy a glass of the yoghurt drink Buttermilk.
How about a full breakfast to drink? Smoothies bring healthy variety to the table, are quickly prepared and can really fill you up.
