4.85 from 19 votes
Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:5 minutes
Total Time:10 minutes
Servings:4 pancakes
Calories:253kcal

Ingredients

Optional

  • ½ tsp chili flakes (I highly recommend this)
  • 1 bell pepper, red
  • ½ cup peas

Instructions

  • 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!

Serving suggestions:

  • 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!).

Veggie Brekkie FAQ

While scrolling though all those vegetarian breakfast recipes some general questions might have popped up in your head. So, before you go, let’s see if we have the answer to them 🙂

How do you make a great veggie breakfast?

First, decide if you want something savoury or sweet. After that we recommended choosing a protein source so the breakfast is well-balanced and filling. We have loads of ideas for you on the site!

What should a vegetarian eat for breakfast?

Along with a good protein source, we generally recommend some healthy fats and whole-grain carbs, too. A well-balanced breakfast can provide a great boost to start the day, as well as giving you enough energy for the full day ahead.

What is a good protein breakfast?

We would consider a bare minimum of 15g protein to be a good protein breakfast. Ideally, getting closer to 25g protein would be far better.

This can be through a dairy product like yogurt, Greek yogurt, cheese or milk, eggs, nuts, seitan or even tofu!

Many vegetarians struggle to get enough protein to meet their lifestyle needs. If that sounds like you then check out this free 7-day high-protein veggie meal plan.

So there we have it! Our favourite vegan and vegetarian breakfast ideas all in one place. I hope they hit the spot – if they don’t just leave us a comment and let us know why!

  1. I have just cooked the veg muffins for 5 young ladies – all vegetarian – staying with me for bnb. Super and I love the sound of lots of the others I shall be doing for my grandchildren in half term – excellent, quick, practical and ingredients already in the fridge – no special shopping trips! A bonus all round!

    1. Ah, that’s so great to hear, Anne! I’m pleased it all worked out so well. And I’m glad you’ve found others you like the look of!! Happy cooking, and thanks for writing 🙂

    2. I run a small b&b and usually serve bacon & sausage (locally bred) but I want to change and do veg/vegan breakfasts instead. That’s the reason I’m checking out this site.

      1. Awesome! I hope you’ve found something you can use, Alex. Good luck with the b&b!

  2. Can wait to try them all.

  3. How the heck you guys use eggs, cheese in your recipes and call it vegetarian? How is that possible?

    1. Hi Stanislaw, we use the generally accepted definition of ‘vegetarian’ – no meat or animal rennet. Our recipes without animal products are labelled as ‘vegan’.

      1. Cheese is fine, eggs… I’d avoid calling it vegetarian.

        1. Hi Nuno, thanks for the comment. We’re using the two simplest terms of labelling food – vegetarian includes ovo/lacto (so eggs and dairy), vegan is without any animal product whatsover. It’s the most widely accepted terminology at the moment.

        2. Flexatarian

    2. Because these are not vegan recipes

    3. Vegeterians dont eat meat and fish…..vegans dont eat any animal products like eggs and cheese. thats the difference.

      1. Eggs are not vegetarian they are chicken embroys that arent fully devolped.

        1. Hi Carrots, eggs fall into the broadest definition of vegetarian. They are not vegan though.

          1. no eggs are not vegetarian if someone just eats eggs and continues a veg diet he/she is an eggetarian and this meal is probably for them vegetarians are the ones who just drinks milk from the cow and milk products

          2. For ease of clarification, we use the lacto-ovo definition, as per the Vegetarian Society, and it includes eggs. Cheers.

        2. Carrots- eggs are not “embryos that aren’t fully developed”. Egg laying hens aren’t exposed to roosters, therefore the eggs produced are not fertilized and will never become an animal. Just like human females have to pass the eggs that aren’t fertilized, so do hens.

  4. This blog is really awesome for me I just try two recipes from it “Eggs in a Cloud” and “Runner’s Sandwich”, and both were just wow in taste. Thanks and keep sharing.

  5. 5 stars
    Love this breakfast roundup! I am starting to get tired of my breakfast favorites and need to change things up! Such great breakfast ideas here! Thanks!!

    1. Glad to hear that, Emily!! 😀

  6. 5 stars
    Im doing a review on this for a school project, and I’m just going to say this was perfect!

  7. Yum! I love all of the ideas.

  8. I think your recipes look great and am going to try them. I’m trying to eat more vegetarian food so appreciate ideas with eggs and cheese as I would honestly struggle to become vegan. I think it’s great that people are trying to change their eating habits so all you vegans out there please give us a break and let us do it in small steps. Hopefully we will get there !

    1. Thanks Margaret! Yes, every step helps, absolutely. Good luck eating veggie – it’s great!

  9. 5 stars
    I have tried several of the breakfast recipes and they were very good. My whole family enjoys them. Thank you.

    1. Thank you very much, that’s great to hear! I’m really happy they all enjoyed them 🙂

  10. 5 stars
    I just stumbled on this site and although I do not eat meat or chicken, I don’t consider myself a vegetarian or vegan. I’m just trying to eat healthier. I appreciate all of your recipes and plan on trying a bunch of them. Thank you so much

    1. Hi Cyndi – sounds good! That’s exactly what we’re aiming for to be honest – to inspire people to eat more healthily – and to show it’s possible for all to cut down on meat. Thanks for writing, and enjoy the recipes!

  11. 5 stars
    I’ve tried several of these recipes and I love them all so far! My favorite has to be the blueberry banana protein smoothie. I’m trying to go vegetarian for about 5 months because I had always wanted to try it but I am thinking of staying vegetarian because I’ve found lots of awesome recipes like this!

    1. Hi Katsuki! Really glad you’ve enjoyed them so far! I love that smoothie too . Five months sounds like a great goal, and as you say – maybe you’ll stay that way! There are definitely looooads of awesome recipes 😀

  12. Eggs are not vegetarian.
    You can do your ovo lacto all you want, it’s a biological creation – not organic. Even if you don’t care about animal cruelty , eggs are not vegetarian by any means.

    1. Hi Kay, as stated we use the broadest definition of vegetarian – ovo lacto – no animal flesh. You will also find milk and cheese in these recipes. Please check this compilation: https://hurrythefoodup.com/high-protein-vegan-breakfast-recipes/ for recipes with no eggs, milk or cheese 🙂

  13. Vegetarian does not include egg buddy!

    1. yes it does, mate!

  14. Vegetarians don’t eat eggs. Infact animals in any form.

    1. I guess we can just keep the conversation going here.

  17. I looked over these they are great. I am not a vegan or vegetarian . I do eat animal protein looking to cut back on it. Most of these will be great for me to try. Due to job in healthcare field I need quick n fast recipes. I look forward to checking out lunch n supper ones as well. What people dont realize everything we eat can be modified to suit your own personal lifestyle n. Cheers Petrina
