granola It is delicious and very healthy too! Not for nothing is it the breakfast favorite of people who like it sweet in the morning. Do you prefer to eat granola with yogurt? But this is also vegan. We reveal how!
Preparation: Crunchy oatmeal and nuts of your choice – walnuts, hazelnuts or almonds taste especially good – mix with a teaspoon of cinnamon and plenty of agave syrup. It must have formed a nice mass at the end. Spread them out on a baking tray and put them in the oven at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes. The agave syrup ensures that the oatmeal and nuts are really crispy. Stir occasionally so that the granola turns brown on all sides.
As a yoghurt substitute: Mix 1 banana and a handful of frozen raspberries or other berries with 1/2 cup of oat milk in a blender to a smooth mass. Put the finished granola on top, finish with toppings of your choice and voilà, you have a delicious and healthy breakfast in front of you that does not contain any animal products.
Vegan smoked salmon
Vegan smoked salmon is the trend par excellence and is currently offered at all hip cafes in the big city. If you are going to make it yourself at home, you need two things in particular: carrots and smoky taste! Well done, it tastes deceptively real. In addition, the carrots are full of vitamins and minerals and are therefore good for your health. The best? With a little twist, the recipe is also for you if you do not like fish.
Preparation: It is best to use large carrots and cut them into long, thin strips with a vegetable peeler. Now cook the carrots for a few minutes until they are soft. Then add the carrot strips liquid smoke (1 teaspoon to 3 carrots), a little soy sauce, lemon juice, a dab of maple syrup and nori leaves. Just omit the latter if you do not want it to be so “fishy”. Then leave the smoked salmon in an airtight container in the refrigerator for at least one night.
As a base: The vegan salmon tastes best on a bagel with cream cheese. Here, too, it is very easy to find plant-based alternatives based on soy or oats. The selection in the supermarkets is constantly growing. If you want to be creative yourself, you can conjure up a delicious dip from a piece of natural tofu, a clove of garlic and fresh herbs of your choice. Put everything in a blender and season with salt and pepper. Put the salmon on top and garnish with dill.
Vegan scrambled eggs

Simply crumble the tofu and mix with some yeast flakes, pepper and paprika powder as needed. Then into the forehead. If you prefer it a little “sloppy”, you can add soy yogurt.

4. Vegan Mettbröttchen
Many people love it: The solid Mett roll in the morning. To prepare the classic vegan you need rice cakes! This key ingredient is essential for the deceptive true false satiety you will love.

It is best to leave this mixture in the fridge overnight so that the rice cakes can absorb the aroma of onions and spices as best as possible.
