Easy Vegetarian Breakfast Recipes

Let's face it, mornings are often busy. These easy vegetarian breakfast recipes come in handy when you don't have much time to eat in the morning.

Yogurt Parfait with Granola

You'll need 1 cup of your favorite yogurt, 1/4 cup of chopped strawberries, 1/4 cup of blueberries, 1/4 cup of low-fat granola or a high fiber cereal, and either a parfait dish or a disposable plastic cup that you can just throw away or preferably recycle when you finish eating.

Making a yogurt parfait is all about layering. Start with a layer of yogurt. Then, add a portion of strawberries followed by another layer of yogurt. Next, add a portion of the blueberries and you guessed it another layer of yogurt. Do so until the cup is full or you have used all of the ingredients. Lastly, top with granola or high fiber cereal.

Feel free to use more than a 1/2 cup of fruit, that is just the typical serving size. The usual serving size for yogurt is a 1/2 cup, but I typically use a whole cup of low-fat yogurt for the extra calcium and vitamin D. Plus, it is more filling with more yogurt. If you use a plastic cup for this recipe it is great to take with you if you are in a rush.

Breakfast Trail Mix

Combine a 1/2 cup of a high fiber cereal or at least one that isn't loaded with sugar, 1/2 cup of dried fruit (a combination of different fruits is best), and 1/4 cup of almonds or walnuts. Mix well and place in a plastic bag or container.

This only takes a few minutes to put together in the morning before work or class. However, I find that it is worth it to prepare this either the night before or even to make a few bags of this at once to have a quick vegetarian breakfast that I can just grab on my way out the door.

Mini Bagels and Breakfast Sandwiches

Spread with cream cheese, jelly, peanut butter or whatever you would normally eat on a bagel. Not only do mini bagels have fewer calories, they are easier to carry with you when time is limited in the morning. You can also just use half of a bagel instead.

Other types of sandwiches make a good vegetarian breakfast. They are quick and easy to make, plus they have more nutritional value than a sugary breakfast bar. While they are not your typical breakfast sandwich, they will keep you full throughout the morning. Check out these easy vegetarian breakfast recipes here.

Fruit Kabobs

Besides an assortment of fruit cut into bite-sized pieces, all you need for this vegetarian breakfast recipe are some wooden skewers that you can buy at any grocery store. Just slide the fruit onto each skewer in no particular order. For more calcium and protein, dip the fruit kabob in any flavor of low-fat yogurt.

The fruits that work best for this recipe are grapes, any type of berry (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc.), and bananas. Other fruits, such as apples and melons will work too, but it is a lot of work to cut them into bite-sized chunks just for a quick breakfast.

Fruit kabobs can also make a tasty vegetarian snack or a popular vegetarian appetizer to a party, as I mentioned in my article about attending family cookouts or having a vegetarian barbecue with your friends.

These are just a few of the many quick and easy vegetarian breakfast recipes out there. Be creative and see what kinds of tasty breakfast recipes you come up with!
