Tasty and Easy Mother's Day Vegan Brunch Recipe Ideas

Recipes, Vegan Food Prep Ideas for Brunch

With Mother's Day right around the corner, and with no interest in eating brunch in a crowded restaurant that day, I'm sampling a bunch of easy to prepare vegan recipes. 

I aim to decide which one I'll serve to celebrate myself on Mother's Day.

If the recipes pass my flavor test, I'll gladly incorporate them into my collection of healthy, homemade plant-based recipes I serve to family and friends.

Post Updated 4/11/2023

I invite you along. Perhaps you'll discover a dish or two you can take to the bank.  

I've narrowed it down to foods that are simple to make, have healthful ingredients, and rate high in good taste and satisfaction.

The Best Vegan Avocado Toast

Recipe for Avocado Toast and Vegan Brunch Ideas

Avocados get a warm reception at my house. This green super fruit is sensually delicious, and research shows avocados are a powerful source of antioxidants and nutrients, including healthy unsaturated fat. 

The Best Vegan Avocado Toast

Avocado toast is so versatile, it's ideal for Mother's Day breakfast, lunch, brunch, or dinner. It's colorful, tasty, and healthy too.


4 slices whole grain bread or gluten free bread

1 large avocado or 2 small ones, halved and pitted

2 teaspoons fresh chopped basil or parsley

½ lemon juiced

1 teaspoon extra virgin cold pressed olive oil

Pinch of salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

Optional Toppings: salsa, chopped or sliced tomato, chopped scallion, organic strawberries, organic raspberries, organic blueberries, toasted white sesame seeds, and/or any herbs or spices you enjoy.

What to do:

1.Toast bread in a toaster or toaster oven.

2. Cut avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit, and use a spoon to scoop out avocado pulp into a medium sized mixing bowl.

3. Then mix avocado with parsley or basil, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

4. Mash ingredients from step 3 together, using the side of a fork or potato masher. 

5. Divide avocado mixture into 4 parts and spread onto the toast. Place  a quarter of the optional topping on each slice of toast. Bon appétit. Serves 2. 👍
