Brunch season is at last upon us! The days are getting longer, the breeze is no longer icy, and the cob-webbed patio furniture is calling out for us. It’s time to dust off your sandals, sit in the sun and bring your summer dresses out of the loft (to hide that post-brunch bloat).

Whether it’s to catch up with the in-laws or a bit of al fresco brunching at your friend’s new house, there’s no escaping it. No need for rushing around chewing cold toast and brown bananas before work. Brunch is the perfect opportunity to sit back and enjoy the best of breakfast food and the bubbles of booze (or non-alcoholic wine for those who are t-total).


From fluffy pancakes to crispy french toast to hearty bagels, these vegan alternatives for brunch don’t skimp on flavour and are worth organising a brunch get-together for. Get the cocktails flowing and try out these tasty vegan brunch recipes with your dairy-loving friends – they won’t even notice it’s vegan!

Ackee scramble and smoky aubergine bagels

Don’t be fooled; no eggs were harmed in the making of this recipe. Ackee makes for a natural alternative to eggs, a favourite of chef and food writer Rachel Ama, who uses them for this ackee scramble and smoky aubergine bagel recipe. If you don’t trust our word for it, trust Rachel’s when she says these are ‘ultimate bagel goals’. The sweet, smoky and crispy aubergine brings a depth of flavour to the dish, and seasoning the ackee with black salt makes it taste just like eggs – the perfect way to convince non-vegans to try alternatives.
