Follow on for these Vegetarian Breakfasts: 3 Appetizing Recipes You’ll Love!
1. Baked Eggs in Tomato
This combination of eggs, tomatoes, and garlic is as delicious as it is classic! The trick to nailing this recipe is to cook the eggs until the whites are well-set and the yolks are perfectly jammy— starting with room temperature eggs is super important, so soak them in hot water for a few minutes if they’re cold from the fridge.
An easy and nutritious breakfast in the absence of meat, this recipe is great to have on hand because it is quick and simple to make, and you can switch it up by playing with the toppings. I like to top mine with sharp feta cheese and fresh basil or parsley.
2. Overnight Oats
This overnight oats recipe is a great healthy breakfast which can be prepared in advance and kept in the fridge throughout the week.
This quick vegetarian breakfast is a nutritious way to start the day and you can easily adapt it to suit your tastes—to change it up, you can add fresh fruit, seeds and nuts, peanut butter, or honey. Best of all, the oats are a great breakfast food because they are high in antioxidants, a rich source of fibre, and they contain more protein than most other grains.
You can put this recipe in the fridge for just a couple of hours, or cover and leave your mixture to soak overnight, making this a super convenient grab ‘n’ go breakfast!
3. Tofu Scramble
This vegan alternative to scrambled eggs on toast is easy to make, high in protein, and is sure to power you up for the day!
To begin with, finely slice one shallot and two cloves of garlic and lightly fry them off on low heat. After this, crumble your firm tofu into the pan and stir to combine.
Whilst the tofu and aromatics are cooking, simply sprinkle in your nutritional yeast as well as any additional seasonings. After this, you can slice up any bread of your choosing to toast in a skillet.
This is the perfect vegetarian breakfast even if you don’t have much time to spend on food in the morning. Simply press your tofu the night before so that it’s ready to add to your vegetables and spices! It doesn’t get much easier than that.
