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 4/27/2024

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.

It's a great way to eat many veggies, and young and old alike will love its creamy, deceivingly non-decadent dairy free sauce.

I love crunchy, colorful salads. That's why I've included a special Vegan Cobb Salad from the Vegan Food Blogger Julie West at the Simple Veganista. It is yummy, simple to make, and has healthy ingredients.

Last but not least is my recipe for

The Best Vegan Avocado Toast
by Nancy Andres

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, peeled, 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. Peel and 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. 👍

  1. What yummy recipes! Pinned ♥

  2. Wishing you a happy Mother's Day Nancy with wonderful plant food. We enjoy avocado toast too on 100% whole grain bread that Georgie makes. For your readers who prefer to limit or avoid oils, we find no need for oil when eating avocado on bread. I do enjoy addding some aruglua as a layer under the avocado for added heart benefits and cherry tomatoes on top. YUM!

    1. Thanks for your visit and comment. Some people who visit my blog need to eat gluten free, so I suggest they choose gluten free oat flour, brown rice flour, garbanzo flour, almond flour or some other gluten free grain for the avocado toast sandwich. Have a lovely weekend Happy Vegan Couple and stay safe and well.
