Breakfast Poutine

vegan breakfast

The time has come for another delicious vegan breakfast menu item. I’ve said this before, and I will continue to say it, unless you know what’s up (like I do) vegan breakfast is the most boring, unimaginative meal of our entire plant based existence. When I go anywhere folks are like ” we’ve got smoothies an a fruit bowl…” Muthafuuuuuuu if I wanted a damn smoothie I would make it at home and it would be exactly how I like it, none of this orange juice and berries BS with minimal effort and no flavour. Oh and those fruit cup salad things I’m always offered are just syrup soaked fruit chunks that are worse for you than candy.
Why oh why is it impossible for brunch based establishments to create a decent veg or vegan option? … You cook eggs all gosh darn day, don’t you want to get creative?!  It has been this type of breakfast an brunch disappointment that has challenged me to create all the magical brunch foods my brain could think of in their vegan form. You name the dish; I’ve made it. I now refuse to go out for a before-noon-meal with a side of disappointment. I’d rather disappoint myself than pay someone $20+ mandatory mimosas to do it. And so James and started out Sunday Brunch club. It’s a club for two where we make whatever we want, drink cheap Prosecco and OJ with complimentary seconds and bottomless refills.

vegan poutine

This vegan breakfast poutine recipe was inspired by a meal I watched James mercilessly devour at our local watering-hole, while picking away at a (you guessed it) boring quinoa-based vegan breakfast option. For those of you unfamiliar with this staple Canadian dish…

poutine n.    French-Canadian dish traditionally made of French fries and fresh cheese curds, covered with gravy.

In Canada, we have a version of poutine fit for every meal, holiday and event you could possibly think of. This breakfast version is just as unhealthy and delicious as the original, only we are using 3 different types of vegan cheese instead of cheese curd, hollandaise instead of gravy and topping it with vegan egg & bacon bits because we can! To get a rich, authentic eggy flavor into our hollandaise and our vegan scrambled egg, I used my favorite egg replacer—The Vegg! You have watched me use this product 100 times, and almodt monthly I am coming up with new ways to use it. It mimics the taste, smell and texture of real eggs and is created using nutritional yeast (my fav). If you haven’t tried it yet, order some ASAP. You’ll be glad you did.
