Vegan Breakfast Recipes
Little more than piles of shredded potatoes, what separates superlative hash browns from the merely adequate hash browns all comes down to texture. Shatteringly crisp on the outside yet tender, even borderline creamy on the inside, it’s a fine balance that’s difficult to strike.
Using a waffle iron instead of a standard frying pan maximizes the surface contact for a far more satisfying crunchy crust, while the enclosure allows the spuds to essentially steam from within, ensuring perfectly tender bites through and through.

In January of 2018 there were near-riots in France as a grocery chain knocked down the price of Nutella, the popular chocolate-hazelnut that’s gathering a following here in the U.S. But is it really worthy of that kind of devotion? After all, the first two ingredients are sugar and palm oil — not ideal fuels to start the day. This sweet cocoa avocado toast has got it all — protein, good fats, whole-grain carbs, and the potassium boost of banana.
While avocado may have seen its day as a trend, it still has plenty of devotees (yours truly included), and has become a fixture on countless breakfast and lunch menus everywhere. After the recent “Nutella riots” as they were dubbed by the press, I merged the concepts of avocado toast and Nutella into one super-simple spread. Using only a handful of real food ingredients, this “Not-ella” spread is oil- and dairy free and sublime. It’s an easy, filling breakfast and a good after-school treat. more→

Despite its incredibly good-for-you nutrition profile, sorghum is a bit on the bland side, so boosting it with tasty ingredients is a must!
