By now, you may have read about the cruelty inherent in the production of eggs, milk, cheese, and other animal-derived products.

Don’t think that you’re getting away with anything by buying items that feature buzzwords such as “free-range” or “organic.” The truth is that you can only avoid cruelty by not purchasing cruelly obtained foods.

We’re glad you’re here so that we can show you some of our favorite savory vegan breakfast recipes, such as the following:

1. Bánh Xèo (Savory and Crispy Vietnamese Crêpes)

True, these can be eaten for any meal of the day, but they make a great breakfast and are easier to prepare than you might expect. Filled with brown beech as well as oyster and king oyster mushrooms, the rice flour base makes the dish gluten-free. Finishing flavors are bright with the addition of lettuce, mint, and basil.

2. The Buddhist Chef’s Tofu Scramble

This quick scramble is made without milk, cheese, and other animal-derived products, and will have you out the door in no time.

3. Buffalo Tofu-Scramble Breakfast Tacos

Buffalo sauce and ranch dressing in the morning? We say, “Why not?”
