Vegan Breakfast Recipes

Breakfast Casserole

I am going out of town this week for the Region 8 Gymnastics Congress and in order to make sure my poor husband doesn't survive by eating Ramen noodles and PB and J sandwiches I always try to make something he can eat on for a few days while I am away. This time I decided to do breakfast. I used to make this when I used to eat eggs and have wanted to try it Vegan for some time now.  This is the super yummy result of this! Breakfast Casserole

Vegan Sausage Patties

I used to really enjoy the Morningstar Sausage Patties in my Vegetarian days, but since they are not Vegan friendly I decided to try my hand at making my own.  I know there are other brands that are Vegan, but I just prefer to make my own.  This list of ingredients looks long, but keep in mind that most of it is spices and you can omit a couple if you do not have them.  The fennel is a must, as is the Cayenne and Black Pepper, but the rest is just the combination I came up with...

Happy New Year Quiche

Happy New Year to all!!  Welcome to 2011.  I hope this year brings health, happiness, and success to everyone.  This also marks the 1 year anniversary of the Coppage house going vegan.  We continue to be happy about this decision and are learning and growing as people because of it.  It is still a struggle to go out and eat and it is a constant battle of defending our decision to other people, but we know this is right for us. To continue with the tradition of black eyed peas...

Tofu Scramble, Hash Browns, and Cinnamon Raisin Bread

  Yesterday we slept in late and I decided when we woke up that I wanted a super yummy breakfast.  It is rare that we sleep in and ever rarer that I can get William to eat breakfast with me.  So I went all out for this one.  We had (all homemade) cinnamon raisin toast, tofu scramble, and hashbrowns.  We also had fruit, coffee, and orange juice.  It was glorious.  I had some leftovers of it for breakfast today as well and it was still...

Sunday Funday Quiche

Every now and again we like to get together with our friends and let loose on Sunday.  This week we decided to have a brunch picnic in the park.  We had coffee, mimosas, fruit, hummus, fresh pitas, and vegan quiche.  Then we ran around in our clothes in the water park!!!  For my quiche I used a store bought vegan friendly crust and filled it with kale, baby portobellos, red onion, and tomatoes.  The crust is not necessary if you do not have access to one and you can...
