vegan Huevos Rancheros recipe

vegan Huevos Rancheros recipe

I had a hard time with vegan breakfast and brunch for a really really long time. I just wasn’t all that into oatmeal and fruit bowls, and was starting to really miss the hearty, feel-good weekend brunch meals of my pre-vegan past. At first I was okay with how hard it was to eat breakfast as a vegan, but after many drunk brunches and boring fruit bowls “hold the yogurt please”, I had enough. This lifestyle needed a breakfast makeover and I knew exactly which dish to start with, Traditional Mexican Huevos Rancheros.

This dish makes me happy unlike any other food I have ever had. I don’t know if it’s the fact that I am obsessed with mexican food, or that I am just so impressed with my vegan brunch creation, but this dish really makes my day brighter. Thanks to the sweet potato and beans, we have protein, minerals and vitamins covered. I have balanced out the cooked parts of this plate with creamy avocado slices, and some fresh raw tomatoes, making every bite an adventure. Top each delicious morsel with your favourite hot sauce and voila! Vegan brunch perfection!

  • Looks yummy!!

    Where is the rancheros sauce?

  • These are the tastiest. So good with the beans.

  • Also – please correct my spelling of your name in my last comment 🙁 Sorry to have missed that it’s an I, not an A.

  • Candace, might you consider looking at suggesting different oils for cooking when looking at temps of 450? Coconut oil will have passed its smoke point at that temp (by 100 degrees) and will be infusing your food with trans fats. Here’s a breakdown of oils and their smoke points. The chart can be sorted by smoke point temperature:

    Other than that, this looks absolutely awesome and I’ll be trying it soon 🙂

    • EdgyVeg says:

      What oil do you cook with?

      • Usually, grapeseed. But, if the temp is going above 415, I try to always use refined safflower. Both are neutral oils, so not much flavor there, so shouldn’t alter your recipe flavor profile.

  • Melissa says:

    I just skipped the vegg powder, but this way of making “eggs” is brilliant! I mixed in black beans and sauteed onions and peppers instead of having them separate, and made a huge pot for an office coffee hour, to rave reviews. Thanks!

    • EdgyVeg says:

      I am so happy that this recipe worked out! 🙂 Thanks for the comment!

  • Hi Candice,

    Hope you are very well.

    I live in Toronto too, am trying to get the vegg but cannot find it anywhere. Could you please tell me where I could buy it?

    Thanks very much!

    Take care,
