25 Perfect Brunch Recipes From Cherry Pancakes to Chilaquiles and Tofu Scrambles

In the last few years, brunch has become seriously popular. This late morning meal (which is a portmanteau of breakfast and lunch) is usually enjoyed on vacation or at the weekend, at around 11am, with a frothy coffee or even a mimosa. It can be literally anything you want it to be—hence the popularity. If you’re in the mood for breakfast foods, cook up some pancakes or vegan scramble. Or, if you prefer something sweet and light, a smoothie bowl does the trick, too.

Brunch is versatile, but there is one thing that you can’t compromise on: it must always be enjoyed. Brunch isn’t about fuelling up for the day and then getting on with your tasks or chores, it’s about taking it easy, relaxing, and treating yourself to some delicious food. The rest is up to you.

But, that said, if you’re not sure what kind of indulgence your next brunch will involve, we’ve compiled these 25 vegan recipes to help you decide.
