Vegan Mothers Day Brunch Menu





mothers day brunch

Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday, and we’ve got you covered with a vegan brunch menu that’s as tasty as it is cruelty-free!

Brunch can be a tricky meal to veganize, if you’re used to rely on eggy dishes as the staples, but you can actually make a pretty traditional brunch without an egg or a shred of cheese in sight! The best part? This vegan menu features a decadent quiche as the main event.

A quiche with no eggs? YES! A girlfriend made this vegan quiche recipe for my baby shower, and even the omnivore guests loved it! The crust is rich, and the filling is so hearty you’ll never miss the egg. But! Before we get to that, let’s start things out with a salad.

Arugula and Strawberry Salad

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 cups arugula, chopped
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 Haas avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup walnut oil (or more olive oil)
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. In a serving bowl, toss together the salad greens, berries, avocado, and sesame seeds.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients together. Pass the dressing alongside the salad.

    Love this recipe Becky :). Thanks so much for sharing. On the fence on whether to switch the arugula for spinach. The rest will stay! Love any excuse to use walnut oil. Hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day and look forward to seeing more of your recipes and reading through the others, especially the Quiche! Take care :).
