#veganbreakfast theme 13th March 2014

Thursday 13th March #veganrecipehour theme was all about the #Veganbreakfast!

It was a 100% mouthwatering affair with many scrumptious suggestions that left my belly rumbling!

I personally like to have Muesli for week day breakfasts. I mix different sized oats and add whatever seeds, nuts, dried fruits I have at the time. Keep it in a big bag and have a handful with some Soya or Almond milk each morning. The weekend is a different matter! In our house we like to have a ‘special’ breakfast on at least one of the days. Tofu scramble is a top choice with maybe a sausage or two or mushrooms etc. Or maybe some home made crumpets with home made jam yum yum! On a warmer day maybe some ‘overnight oats’ with fresh fruit. To be honest the choices are endless and all as totally tasty as each other. We vegans are spoilt for choice! A tasty vegan #crueltyfree Breakfast? What better way to start the day!

Here is a selection of the amazing recipes and ideas from he night itself.

Smoothies proved to be a popular way to start the day. A handy tasty drink packed full of goodness! (Be careful of the sugar content if you are adding sweetness) We had some yummy suggestions, here is a selection:

Heavenly Organics @heavenlyskin suggested this tasty smoothie:

‘Breakfast smoothly 1 organic banana organic& 1/3 tin mango & coconut mylk to desired consistency. Whizz up. Delicious’

Thank you to @vegsoup4thesoul  who told us how they like to start the day with:

‘Fave b’fast smoothie: almond milk, soya yoghurt, bananas, walnuts, agave syrup 🙂 Throw it all in, blitz’

Thank you to @theFlexitarian for this totally tropical suggestion! ‘Tropical protein smoothie’

On a similar theme how about this ‘Easy ‘Banana Milk’ recipe (for cereal) from @PotatoStrong  who also suggested this yummy ‘Fat free wholewheat Pancake’ recipe.

Raw breakfast ideas? How about this one? ‘Apple cinnamon porridge‘ and a fascinating like to ‘raw vegan butter‘ thank you @RawVeganista for that suggestion.

Another Porridge suggestion from @TheFlexitarian but this time, its for ‘Quinoa Porridge‘ with banana and walnuts. Yum!

Check out this mammoth sized Breakfast from @VeganDicso! Cor blimey! I’d give it a good go! They also shared this photograph!  ‘Fry up. ‘Shrooms, Avocado, Tomato, Kale & a couple of Lindas  I have to admit, I really like Linda McCartney sausages and find them pretty versatile. What’s even better is that they are frequently on offer in the shops! #veganonabudget! Tempeh is gorgous for a breakfast, here it is wonderfully demonstrated.Thank You! Food to make your Mouth water!

Another tasty cooked breakfast from @FlavourPhotos ‘ Scrambled tofu with vegan chorizo, spring onions and tomatoes’ Who helpfully added a little advice on making scrambled Tofu:

Add salt, pepper, garlic- granules or fresh, paprika, tiny bit of turmeric for colour and anything else you like!’

Another suggestion for a #tofuscramble recipe came from @PotatoStrong  Who likes to add peppers and Onions to his. @theFlexitarian adds #Nutritionalyeast to theirs.

How tasty does this look and sound!? ‘Crispy potato Rosti with Herby bean mash tweeted by @NaturalFuelBlog. Gorgeous!

Thank you to @PaulsMaier for this suggestion of ‘Best Healthy Breakfast cookies‘ Sticking with a sweet theme, these ‘Heavenly Hazelnut pancakes‘ look like they live up to their name! Thank you @vegsoup4thesoul! Be sure to have a browse through their ’30 #Vegan breakfast ideas to get out of bed for!’ What a sacrifice that must have been, eating all of that food hey! Hehe!

‘Banana Pancake‘? Ah, seeing as you are offering! @myfridgie shared his recipe for ‘Sweet jam pockets’
