The lemon in this recipe mixes with the baking soda to create little bubbles that lift the pancakes into pillowy comfort food. Cooking the pancakes slowly over low heat allows them to cook up into the perfect texture. The trick here is to heat the pan well before pouring the batter and spreading oil on the pan before cooking each batch.

Vegan French Toast

Vegan French toast can seem tricky. After all, if you’re used to making this dish with lots of eggs and milk, you might wonder what you should substitute to make them vegan. Play around with the type of bread that you use for variety in texture. You won’t miss the animal products with additions like nutritional yeast and coconut milk.

Vegan Eggs

Vegan eggs recipes sound a little contradictory. When you think about what’s in an egg, it makes sense, however. Eggs deliver protein and a neutral flavor that can be paired with just about any other ingredient. You can replace eggs with tofu, chickpea flour, flax meal, chia seeds and agar agar powder. Using kala namak, Indian black salt, delivers that eggy sulfur flavor that you might otherwise miss out on when you make vegan eggs recipes.

Vegan Sunny Side Up Eggs

Top the tofu with the “yolks,” and you get the perfect texture every time.

Vegan Crepes

Crepes can easily be made into a vegan recipe with a few substitutions. Fill them with something sweet or savory, or just eat them plain. Although many people drizzle crepes with honey, you might wonder, “Is honey vegan?” It’s created by animals, and it’s not officially vegan. Top them with maple syrup, jam or powdered sugar instead.
