Are you a vegetarian stuck in a toast or cereal rut?  Never fear!  I’ve put together 10 delicious vegetarian breakfast ideas to shake up your routine and repertoire!

I know I’m certainly in need of extending my vegetarian breakfast repertoire.  In our house, it’s mostly cereal, porridge, toast, bagels, or fruit and yoghurt.  Not exactly exciting stuff.  BUT I have big plans to change this, at least at the weekends anyway!  Workdays are hard when you’re rushing to get yourself and a little one fed, dressed, and out the door before 7:30 am so I’ll give myself a pass on those days for now!

Delicious Vegetarian Breakfast Ideas

After a little search, I’ve found some amazing vegetarian breakfast ideas that I have added to my “to make” list!  Let me share my favourites:

Kale, Feta and Egg Toast

vegetarian breakfast ideas

This kale feta egg toast recipe from Well Plated looks really tasty.  It’s also a great seasonal winter veggie breakfast, as kale is in season and in its prime in winter.

Avocado and Tomato Toast with Balsamic Dressing

Keeping with the things on toast theme, this avocado and tomato toast with balsamic dressing from Blissful Basil looks delicious and straightforward!

Egg Baked in Avocado

If you’re looking for an alternative to toast, then this egg baked in avocado from Popsugar could be right up your street!

Spinach Potato Pancakes

These spinach potato pancakes from Veggie Staples would make a great savoury breakfast.  And as well as being a great vegetarian breakfast idea, they are also vegan and gluten-free.

Baked Carrot Cake Oatmeal

I have made this baked carrot cake oatmeal from Green Kitchen Stories and it was Yum (with a capital Y!).  It’s also a good twist on conventional porridge.  I found the recipe makes a lot of oatmeal (A LOT!).  Therefore,  you might want to halve the ingredients for a more manageable-sized dish!

Pumpkin Anytime Squares

I haven’t tried these pumpkin anytime squares from Oh She Glows, but I would like to give them a go!  They sound like they would be ideal to bake ahead in a batch and keep in a tin to grab for a quick vegetarian breakfast on the go.

Breakfast Parfait with Roasted Strawberries

Two Potato Hash with Soft Boiled Eggs

These healthy banana pancakes from yours truly are not only a tasty AND healthy vegetarian breakfast but a great way of using up any bananas that might be going off in your fruit bowl.

Porridge with Cinnamon Spiced Roast Plum

Another one from me, this porridge with cinnamon spiced roast plum is a great autumnal warmer.

Muffin Tin Omelette Vegetarian Breakfast

Finally, in the last of my vegetarian breakfast ideas, I’m really keen to try out these muffin tin omelettes, from Hearth & Homefront.  They look like they would freeze well to eat later, which would be really handy on those mornings when we’re rushing out of the house!

  1. ooh delicious! Some of these ideas are fab.
    My current go-to breakfast, especially if I’m on the go and nibbling on the train or after a gym session, is a baked omelette. 1 tub of cottage cheese, 6 organic eggs, and whatever leftover roast vegetables I have – tomatoes, onions and aubergine usually, with some cooked spinach. Add some herbs, bake for an hour, and chop into 4-6 portions. So tasty and so healthy!
