This recipe has saved my life so many hungover mornings.  One of the things I miss the most since converting to veganism is really tasty, buttery breakfast biscuits smothered with peppery gravy…just like my grandma used to make.  My friend Jessica has figured out how to recreate this delicious breakfast item, which can also be found on her website, theveganvixen.com.  Give it a try and let us know what you think!  This recipe makes about 10 biscuits, depending on the size you make them.  I usually double the recipe and save the extra dough for another day because they are best when they are fresh from the oven!

These are great for taking to a vegan brunch.  They are small, cute, and really delicious – especially when still warm. This is a tasty snack as well, and we love to bake these for parties!

The last three ingredients are for the filling (you will be using half of this for the filling and the other half gets slapped on top of each cinnamon roll when it comes out of the oven!)

Indian Beans on Toast

Vegan Crêpes

Crepes, in simple terms, are thin pancakes.  However, the cool thing about crepes is that you can fill them with anything, so they can be eaten for any meal.  Be sure to read below the recipe instructions for some ideas of things to fill your crepes with!

Here are some stuffing ideas.  Basically, a filled crêpe is similar to an enchilada, so you will want to put the filling in the center and then roll it up and eat with a fork.  Don’t stuff them too full, or they will fall apart!

  • Artichoke hearts
  • Asparagus
  • Broccoli and carrots
  • Soy sausage (crumbled)
  • Vegan chocolate spread
  • Fruit and sugar
  • Vegan Cheese
  • Cottage cheese
  • Green beans
  • Mushrooms
  • Ratatouille
  • Snow peas
  • Spinach
  • Swiss chard
  • Tomatoes

Also, don’t forget that crepes are usually topped with a sauce.  For savory crepes, you can make a standard vegan cream sauce, but don’t be afraid to be creative!  You can also make a red wine sauce and for sweet crepes, use lemon and sugar, vegan butter, or even try your hand at making a vegan fruit sauce!
