All Day Big Cooked Breakfast

There’s nothing like a cooked breakfast. And this one is so good, why keep it for mornings?!  

 

Although animal-free foods are naturally cholesterol-free, try using oil spray to further reduce the amount of oil you cook in - and serve with fresh fruit or freshly squeezed juice for an added vitamin C boost.

 

Here are some ideas - plus recipe links and product information. You don't have to include them all but it will give you some ideas of just how good a 'vegan full British' can be! (with perhaps a few influences from the USA and the Caribbean). 

 

OPTIONS - choose a few from this list

  • Vegan sausages (Fry's; Morrison's; VBites; Linda McCartney; Wicken Fen; Vegetarian Choice.. Dee's and Dragonfly sell a GF range). Home made? Try our Nutty Mushroom Sausage or Seitan Sausages 
  • Rashers - ready to cook vegan bacon or tempeh - VBites; Tofurkey; Impulse. Seitan Bacun or home-made tempeh rashers 
  • Baked beans - nearly all vegan unless meat sausages added
  • Tomatoes, fried or grilled (try adding a bit of fried garlic and olive oil, yum) 
  • Tofu Scramble: two versions for you - Scrambled Tofu with Fresh Tomatoes & Basil OR Maryanne's Super-fast Silken Tofu Scramble 
  • Hash browns (McCain's are vegan)
  • Mushrooms, sliced, cooked with or without garlic, but fried in a little oil and drizzled with soya sauce - use tamari for a GF option
  • Pancakes - use our recipe but reduce the liquid a little to make a thicker, American-style breakfast version
  • French toast - vegan-style
  • Fried plantain or banana
  • Toast
  • Toasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds
  • Alfalfa sprouts
  • Avocado

Shoyu and tamari are the best varieties of soya sauce, tamari being the wheat-free and gluten-free option. Try Kikkoman, Essential, Sanchi or Clearspring brands.

Ingredients: 

  • 1-2 vegan sausages per person
  • 1-2 vegan rashers
  • 225g/8oz mushrooms, sliced with a splash of soya sauce, to taste.
  • Oil or oil spray to fry 4 tomatoes, halved
  • 1-2 tins baked beans (optional)
  • 4 potato scones, eg Warburton's
  • plus all or any of the options listed above!

Method: 

  1. Put on the oven - about 150°C/300°F/Gas Mark 3 - so you can keep cooked items warm until serving. 
  2. Grill sausages according to packet instructions - or fry in oil spray. Keep warm.
  3. Make anything else now eg Tofu Scramble; Pancakes...
  4. Put tomatoes under grill or in a hot oven, ensuring they don’t singe.
  5. Fry mushrooms in oil or oil spray, adding soya sauce at end. Keep warm.
  6. Meanwhile, heat baked beans.
  7. Fry rashers. If using, toast potato scones.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
