A vegan croissant is a pastry made without animal products like butter or eggs. Instead, it’s made using plant-based butter and non-dairy milk. It can be as flaky and buttery as traditional croissants.
Vegan croissants are perfect for vegans and people with dairy or egg allergies.
Vegan eggs are made from plant-based ingredients like mung beans, soy, and potato starch. My favorite kind comes in a liquid form and tastes and feels like traditional eggs. You can also make eggs out of chickpea flour!
It’s a good protein source and has less saturated fat than traditional eggs, which can be good for the heart. It’s also filled with vitamins and minerals like vitamin B12, iron, and calcium.
Vegan cheese is a dairy-free substitute for regular cheese. It’s made from plant-based ingredients like nuts, soy, or coconut milk. It is often fortified with vitamins and minerals to mimic dairy cheese. Vegan cheese comes in various flavors and textures, from soft and creamy to firm and crumbly. This makes it a versatile ingredient for sandwiches, pizzas, and pasta dishes. In this recipe, it adds a savory and cheesy flavor to the vegan egg, creating this rich Vegan Chicken Breakfast Sandwich.
Since it’s plant-based, it’s lower in saturated fat and cholesterol than dairy cheese. This mean reduce the risk of heart disease and high cholesterol levels! Feel free to use vegan cheese in recipes like: Cheeseburger Egg Rolls and Pepperoni Pizza Dip.
Vegan Chicken Burger
A vegan chicken burger is a plant-based alternative to traditional chicken burgers made from soy, wheat or pea protein. It has a taste and texture extremely similar to real chicken but has no animal products in it. Vegan chicken burgers are popular among people who want to cut down on meat consumption but still want to sink their teeth into a special treat. Vegan chicken burgers also provide a good source of protein, and they can be used in various recipes, including this Vegan Chicken Breakfast Sandwich and my Vegan Chicken Parmesan.
Avocado is often used in vegan recipes as a healthy fat. It adds a creamy and rich taste to dishes with its buttery texture and nutty flavor. It also helps add freshness and color to this savory sandwich.
Avocado is a great source of healthy fats, fiber, and vitamins C, K, and B6.
