"This pancake recipe is my family's favorite savory brunch; I make it almost every weekend! Chickpea flour is very high in protein and has a lovely nutty taste to it. You can even play around with the veggies for this recipe depending on what you like or already have on hand. Besides onions and peppers, a few of my favorite combinations are leeks and leftover boiled potatoes, zucchini and mint, or spinach and carrot."

9. Breakfast Burritos

"Ah, the vegan breakfast burrito –  a thing to behold. While we have a vegan burrito in our cookbook, I’d yet to make one with tofu. And, truth be told, this version is a bit easier to make. No rice, no beans, no slaw. Just spiced, scrambled tofu, roasted vegetables, ripe avocado, and a sauce of your choice. Now that you’re imagining yourself with a vegan breakfast burrito in hand, let’s get to it!"

10. Breakfast Quinoa With Chai-Spiced Almond Milk

"In this recipe, the quinoa is cooked in unsweetened almond milk steeped with chai tea (yum!), then topped with pecans and coconut for protein and a little cinnamon for flavor. The quinoa can be served with more warmed almond milk, or even this homemade pecan + walnut milk! It’s low-glycemic, nutritious, and a pretty darn delicious breakfast if I do say so myself."
