Easy Vegan Breakfast Recipe (With Tofurky Vegan Sausages)

This morning I had a good, tasty breakfast. It was ready in less than 10 minutes and although it was a small dish, it was quite filling. So, I thought it was time to share another recipe, it’s been a while. You only need half a red Bell pepper, two spring onions, and two plant-based beer brats (my favorite is Tofurky Beer Brats)

  2. Chop Bell pepper into small pieces and add to skillet
  3. Heat for 2 minutes (on medium to low heat)
  4. In the meantime, slice beer brats and spring onion and add to skillet
  5. Heat on medium heat for 3 minutes, then lower to low heat, heat until beer brats are browned

Note: I used toasted sesame oil because of its nutty taste, but you can also use olive oil if you prefer that. When you fry with toasted sesame oil, it is recommended to only do that on low or medium heat, because it has a lower smoke point.

If you would like to try out another brand, Field Roast, Impossible Foods, and Beyond Sausages also have delicious and high quality sausages in different flavors. Of those three, Impossible Foods and Beyond Sausages are gluten free.

Have a Hearty Breakfast

With a nice cup of Earl Grey, Chai Ceilan, or healthy Matcha tea (or coffee, if you’re a coffee lover 😉 ), this is a nice, quick, and filling breakfast. Although it is not heavy, this meal will leave you sated and you won’t feel hungry for a few hours.

During work hours, we don’t always have the chance to eat, so it’s important that we have a hearty breakfast and don’t spend our time at the office with a grumbling stomach. We’ve all been there at some point and this is why I always make sure I eat breakfast before starting my work day.

  1. This sounds super yummy! Even though I work from home, I usually just throw together some oatmeal, rice cakes with fruit or cereal together. But sometimes I crave something more savory!

    I’ve been sticking with vegan eating for a while now but never tried vegan meats until recently. I had the Field Roast sausage with red beans and rice last week and it was really good but I’ll have to check out the tofurky brats!

    This could also be a special weekend breakfast with some skillet potatoes 🙂

  2. Hi Christine, wow this sounds lovely and so easy to prepare. I’ve never used tofu sausages as I love my meat but they offer so many great varieties these days maybe be I should reconsider. It is a great idea to cook in sesame seed oil especially if you roast it on low heat.

    Loved the picture. Now I’m hungry it’s time to get started. Thanks.

    • Hi Lily,

      Sesame oil definitely adds more flavor and roasting it on low heat is recommended, it comes out very tasty.

      Thanks for your comment!

  3. Hi Christine,

    I am SOOOOOOO pleased I came across this article. Since Jan 4th I haven’t had a proper breakfast (full English) or anything like that. I have just been having a banana and I have lost weight with the current diet I am on. It isn’t actually a diet, it is more of a change of eating that I want to continue.

    However, these Tofurky Vegan Sausages look and sound delicious, and they seem to still be healthy and won’t affect my diet. To be honest my diet is very boring and I need a bit of a boost. So maybe these sausages and some other healthy breakfast ingredients could become my new Saturday morning treat.

    I will let you know if I do start this breakfast up and how I am getting on with it.

    Thank you for sharing as always and keep up the great work.

    All the best,


    • Hi Tom,

      That’s great! I’m happy this post was helpful to you 🙂 Some other great brands you can use for sausages are Beyond Sausages and Field Roast. They have an excellent and authentic flavor.
      Thank you for your comment!

  4. Coffee with the breakfast it will definitely be after you just showcased that lovely looking coffee (I guess Latte) in the image displayed.

    I love that this recipe is so quick and easy, yet looks healthy. I prefer minimal effort if I can get away with it, especially on days when life can become pretty busy.

    I myself am not really into the vegan scene, but I can see the benefits in this regard. When I do eat meat I do keep to organic though. I tried some vegan meat replacements before. It was ok I guess, but not super impressed with the taste though lol. I will give it another go and see if I like it.

    • Hi Schalk,

      I agree that not all meat replacements are good, and we all have different tastes and expectations as well. Some brands are better than others, but the ones I recommend in this post, Tofurky, Field Roast, and Beyond Sausage are all excellent. Beyond Sausage has won several awards for its great flavor. Maybe you’ll try it out one day 😉
      Thanks for your comment!

  5. This recipe sounds delicious, but one I’d make for dinner. I often use Linda Mccartney vegetarian sausages as a base, and will save your tasty recipe:) I’ve never heard of “beer brats” but following your link and reading about them made my mouth water!

  6. Omg. Soy sausages are delicious. I remember, one year, I went completely soy. I ate soyburgers, tofu (fried), tempeh, soynut butter. I went nuts and loved all of them. I especially loved the soy “turkey” sausage. It’s an acquired taste, but so worth it. My cholesterol went down tremendously by trading in red meat for soy. Great post.

  7. Christine, thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I like vegan alternatives that taste like I’m getting away with something. ? It looks so easy to make, especially for mornings where you don’t have a lot of time to spend cooking. I also appreciate the recommendations for other sausage options if we can’t find the one in the recipe at our local store. I look forward to trying this recipe soon!


  8. I have very good friends who are vegans and obviously eat a plant based diet. I ahve enjoyed meals they have prepared and it is quite incredible what they come up with. I have given thought to going plant based also for the health benefits, but have always had problems trying to figure out how to shop for it as well as concerns over the cost. I will explore your site further. Thanks for the recipe I will have to give it a try.

    • Hi Rob,

      When I went vegan I had similar concerns, I basically did not know what I was getting into, lol, but I am so glad I did get into it 🙂 As for costs, it isn’t expensive really. I wrote a little bit about that in this article “Is Being Vegan Hard“. And the health benefits are a nice added bonus, and you`ll end up saving money on doctor’s visits and medicine. 🙂
      Thanks for your comment!

  9. Christine,

    The picture in the beginning looked so good! I just ate breakfast, and even that made me think I should eat again! I won’t, but man, that looks good! I’ve actually had these sausages before. They’re really, really good. For a long time I ate meat alternatives versus the real thing. I’ve gone back and forth on a lot of different foods, and most of meat alternatives taste really good actually. I’ve always been amazed!

    Thanks for sharing this recipe! It looks really good. I’ll have to try it for sure!


    • Thanks, Katrina! I’m glad you like this recipe 🙂
      There are indeed some amazing meat alternatives available! Have you tried Beyond Meat and Beyond Sausage? They’re really good.
      Thank you for your comment!
