The only thing worse than a bad breakfast is no breakfast. Luckily, that’s not going to be an issue for you. We’ve put together a lineup of some of the best vegan and vegetarian breakfast ideas we’ve ever seen.
Each recipe is genuinely tasty – we like our food quick and nutritious, but it has to taste good too. If it didn’t make the grade, it didn’t make this list.
So, without further ado, welcome to our list of veggie breakfast ideas. The breakfasts range from 3 to 25 minutes depending on how long you’ve got to spare, and all are easy enough that they won’t tax you first thing in the morning. Enjoy.

Actually, let me put the recipe into this post. Go ahead and try it out right away 🙂
- ½ tsp chili flakes (I highly recommend this)
- 1 bell pepper, red
- ½ cup peas
- Add the flour, water, turmeric, salt, pepper and chili flakes (if using) to a mixing bowl and give it a quick blend using a food processor or blender. Leave it to settle for a few minutes while you heat up the oil or ghee in a non-stick pan. The batter needs to look very runny!
- Dice the veggies finely and add them to the mixture.
- Use a tissue or similar (a spray oil would work wonders here) to ensure the bottom of the pan is coated well in oil.
- Add about a ladle of the mixture and veggies when the pan is hot – a medium heat should be just right.
- Cook for about 3 minutes – the mixture will quickly start to firm. If you’re using two pans, you can make two pancakes at the same time.
- Make sure you use a large pan (or pans) here, you’re aiming for thin pancakes. They’re MUCH easier to handle!
- Use a large spatula to help you flip the pancakes, adding more oil underneath if necessary. After another 2-3 minutes your pancake will be ready!
- Keep it somewhere warm while you repeat with the second pancake, adding more oil when necessary.
- Done! Add your desired toppings and enjoy. Remember – it’s important to eat these pancakes warm – don’t let them get cold!
- Any chutneys (red onion is a favourite of ours) yogurt dip, hummus, avocado, guacamole, Branston Pickle (if you can find it where you are it goes incredibly well!).
