8 Vegan Brunch Ideas
If you really want to impress your friends with your plant-based prowess, then you need to have this Orange & Almond Vegan Sweet Bread on the table for your next vegan brunch. The secret? It’s made with extra virgin olive oil. This gives the bread the perfect, moist density. Almond extract and unsweetened, pulp-free orange juice makes for the perfect combination of flavors, while a delicate orange icing provides a little extra sweetness!
Having some homemade jam at your vegan brunch isn’t showing off. It’s just good planning! Making homemade jam is easier than you think! This Peach Chia Jam recipe has 4 ingredients and one of them is real peaches. Maple syrup, chia seeds and fresh lemon juice make up the other three.
This recipe comes from my cookbook, 5-Ingredient Vegan Cooking: 60 Approachable Plant-Based Recipes with Few Ingredients and Lots of Flavor. This vegan brunch recipe takes a twist on plain plant-based waffles and uses orange juice instead of plant-based milk. You can really show these waffles off with a recipe for Easy Blueberry Compote or serve them up with some pure maple syrup and orange zest.
I had this one slotted as a lunch recipe, but you can also make it for breakfast! This simple dish is one of my favorites! Mashed white beans replace over-easy eggs in this recipe. While peppery arugula, pickled red onions, avocado and roasted pumpkin seeds round out the textures and flavors.
You can never have enough of these Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Muffins on hand. Mashed banana and flaxseed meal serve at the binding agent for this easy vegan brunch item, while coconut oil replaces butter and pure maple syrup serves as an unrefined sweetener.
Just like the Peach Chia Jam above, this Raspberry Chia Seed Jam comes together in a snap. If you haven’t tried making a chia seed jam before, you’re in for a pleasant surprise! Chia seeds are not only nutritional powerhouses, they’re also excellent at absorbing water. This characteristic makes them great at making things like Overnight Oats (below) and chia seed jams.
This aesthetically pleasing vegan brunch item also comes from my cookbook, 5-Ingredient Vegan Cooking: 60 Approachable Plant-Based Recipes with Few Ingredients and Lots of Flavor. Mashed white beans replace the eggs in this dish. They’re complemented by a simple, but incredibly flavorful vegetable hash including, bell peppers, tomatoes, onions and garlic. Roasted tomato paste and cumin give this dish a rich, spicy southwestern feel.
Here’s one final recipe from my vegan cookbook, 5-Ingredient Vegan Cooking: 60 Approachable Plant-Based Recipes with Few Ingredients and Lots of Flavor. If you like the idea of quiche, but you’re no longer eating eggs or dairy, these mini chickpea quiches are here to save the day! Made with chickpea flour and nutritional yeast, these mini vegan quiches pack in both nutrition and flavor!

Herbivore’s Kitchen is a plant-based food blog started by me, a vegan home chef, cookbook author, aspiring food photographer and how-to-be-a-better-food-blogger junkie. You’ll mostly find creative and tasty vegan recipes and detailed deep dives into vegan ingredients (check out my Vegucation section) on my blog. I love knowing as much as I can about the food that I make.
