Whether you’re choosing to eat a plant-based diet for ethical reasons or whether you just want to avoid certain ingredients, there’s no doubt about the fact that vegan cooking has become more popular over the past few years. With more people eating and cooking plant-based dishes, there are more recipes making their way into the world. While some of these recipes require a huge amount of time and energy, there are others that are quick and easy – especially when it comes to breakfast.

Vanilla latte smoothie
If you’re the kind of person that struggles to eat breakfast in the morning because you find it stodgy and too filling, smoothies may become your new best friends. While you can make smoothies with everything from fruit to vegetables, you could also give yourself a little caffeine boost with this vanilla latte smoothie. As long as you have non-dairy milk, Medjool dates, almond butter, vanilla powder, a cooled espresso shot, ice cubes, and optional maple syrup and cacao nibs in your pantry, you just need to shove these ingredients into a blender and give it a whirl.
Tofu and spinach scramble
Tofu is one of the best ingredients that a vegan can have in their kitchen, because it can be cooked in so many ways and used for every meal of the day. In fact, it’s a great egg replacement if you want to cook something like scrambled eggs in the morning. For this recipe, you can get creative with your own tastes. While this dish tastes delicious on top of toast, you can add ingredients here and there if you want to. For example, you can coat your tofu scramble with chili or turmeric, and you can even add tomatoes alongside your spinach if you want to.
