Breakfast can feel like a challenging meal when you first go vegan. Typically, breakfast involves a lot of dairy, meat or both at the same time. When it comes to a satisfying, filling, delicious breakfast, you can’t beat a ‘Full English’. Discover the many different ways to enjoy a Vegan Cooked Breakfast right here.

About the Ingredients
When it comes to choosing ingredients for the Vegan Cooked Breakfast, we like to choose the items with the lowest carbon footprint and the least packaging waste.
Locally Grown Tomatoes and Mushrooms
Locally sourced tomatoes and mushrooms are the best option for this Vegan Cooked Breakfast. We like to grow our own tomatoes in the summer months for an even fresher flavour and lower carbon footprint. If you are shopping for tomatoes and mushrooms, source package free options wherever possible, and support your local growers too.
We love adding other fruit and vegetables like spinach and avocado to the Vegan Cooked Breakfast. Similar to tomatoes, spinach can be easily grown from home in a pot. Using it this way avoids the single use plastic bags spinach always seems to come in.
On the other hand, avocados are not grown in the U.K. Whilst we love them so very much and could eat them everyday, we recommend avoiding them regularly, opting instead for food that has travelled fewer miles for your most regular meals. When you do use avocados in this Vegan Cooked Breakfast, source ones that come plastic free. Avocados have an excellent natural skin to protect them and plastic packaging for these guys is a complete waste.

The Best Vegan Sausages
Choosing to eat vegan, doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to sausages or even bacon when you enjoy an English Cooked Breakfast. Personally, we haven’t found a vegan bacon we like the texture of, but when it comes to vegan sausages, there are excellent plant-based alternatives. We love Linda McCartney’s Vegan Sausages. They taste similar to the ‘real thing’ and come in recyclable cardboard boxes. We keep a nice stock of these in our freezer as they are also delicious in breakfast bagels and vegan sausage baps too.
There are many other excellent vegan products available to compliment your Vegan Cooked Breakfast. We can’t imagine making ours without a vegan butter like Pure Sunflower Spread, baked beans which you’ll find are an excellent lazy vegan option for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and an excellent plant-based egg replacement like scrambled tofu.
