7 Favorite Brunch Recipes for Mother’s Day

By Chef Sara

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and there are loads of ways to show your love and appreciation for the special mom (or moms!) in your life. Flowers, jewelry, and cards are well and good and make thoughtful gifts, but if you love to be in the kitchen and live within driving distance of your mom, how about whipping up a special Mother’s Day brunch to enjoy together?

We’ve rounded up some favorite brunch recipes from the blog to inspire you to pour your love and appreciation into a memorable meal that you’ll love to make and share. Like all our recipes, they’re vegan – because animals are mothers, too, and we believe in choosing kindness and compassion at the dinner table.

So invite your mom over, decorate the table with some simple spring flowers, bring out your prettiest tableware, and celebrate your wonderfully special, utterly unique mama – on Mother’s Day or any day!

#1. Peach Streusel Muffins

Peach Streusel Muffins These easy-to-make muffins are bursting with ripe peaches (defrosted frozen ones work just fine in a pinch) and cinnamon, and feature a delectable oat streusel topping. They make the perfect accompaniment to a cup of strong coffee or some nice Earl Grey tea.

#2. Raspberry Chocolate Chip Crumb Cake

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Crumb Cake In the mood for something sweet, but prefer baking a single larger cake over making individual muffins? You’ll love this gorgeous crumb cake, which riffs on the classic combo of raspberries and chocolate with delectable results.

#3. Sunny Side Up Tofu Quiche

Sunny Side Up Tofu Quiche On to savory options! These individual eggless quiches get a fun, elegant twist by being baked in acorn squash rings. You’ll never miss traditional sunny side up eggs when you have a delicious vegan option like this.

#4. Tofu Benedict

Tofu Benedict As another savory option, give our Tofu Benedict a try. In this recipe, slices of toast are heaped with garlicky greens, topped with simple pan-fried tofu, and generously drizzled with the easiest, most delicious hollandaise sauce ever. You may feel compelled to eat the sauce by the spoonful! (And I speak from experience here.)

#5. Roasted Asparagus with Hazelnuts

Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic and Hazelnuts When it comes to side dishes, this easy yet delicious asparagus dish is one of our favorites. The oven takes care of cooking the asparagus so you’re free to work on other things and requires only a simple balsamic vinaigrette drizzle and a scattering of toasted hazelnuts before serving.

#6. Easy Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Quick and Easy Chocolate-Covered Strawberries Nothing says “I love you” quite like these favorite treats, which are deceptively simple to whip up. Enjoy a few as dessert and send your mom home with a container of them to enjoy later.

#7. Vegan “Nutella”

Vegan "Nutella" And if you really want to wow your mom, make a batch of our Vegan “Nutella” and send it home with her as a thoughtful gift! Have you cooked for your mom for Mother’s Day? Will you be cooking for your mom this year? We’d love to hear about it! Please share your stories in the comments below.
