Some people will try to tell you that all breakfast sandwiches involve bacon, egg, and cheese. We give you permission to throw the firmest soy product you can find at such people. Sure, if you’re down to bring home the bacon, the beloved B.E.C. is convenient, filling, and downright delicious. But for us vegans, sticking to this standard would mean eating-just-bread.
Don’t give up hope just yet! Despite what breakfast sandwich purists would have you believe, there are plenty of plant-based options when you’re craving a sammie at sunrise. Packed with protein and flavor, these vegan breakfast sandwiches hit the spot.
1. Spicy Blackened Chickpea Sandwich
2. Savory Tempeh Breakfast Sandwich
3. Balsamic Berry Vegan Grilled Cheese
4. Vegan Bagel and Lox
5. Vegan Pesto Caprese Sandwich
This breakfast sandwich will satisfy those of you who don’t want to wait until lunchtime to pile on the pesto. Ditch the cheese for a creamy cashew and tapioca starch “mozarella,” and load up with sweet Roma tomatoes, fresh basil, and a little bit of lemon. Though we love this combo on a soft ciabatta roll, you can always throw it on a bagel to fit your morning mood.
