The quintessential Mother’s Day celebration, a delicious homemade brunch is always well received. This year, celebrate both Mom and Mother Earth by serving a plant-powered, gluten-free feast that combines the finest seasonal produce with superfood nutrition. Seasoned chefs and novices alike will find these recipes fun and easy to make – and impressive enough to serve your most important guest of honor.
Savory Crepes with Garlic & Rosemary Roasted Veggies, The Urban Poser
Sweet or savory, crepes have the ability to fancy up any feast – and this gluten-free version, made with a combination of coconut flour and coconut milk, is no exception. To make them vegan, swap out the eggs for egg replacer – and while you can customize the filling to suit your personal preferences, we definitely recommend this mixture of fresh spring herbs and garden veggies.
Almond and Vanilla Scones, Healthy Chef
Got a sweet tooth on your hands? These scones, made with almond meal and vanilla paste, are so delicious on their own that they don’t even need jam or jelly – but if you’d like to have it on the table anyway, we suggest making your own from whatever in-season fruit strikes your fancy.
And speaking of seasonal produce, what screams “springtime” louder than carrot cake? This pancake version brings the popular dessert to brunch, and tops it with it an incredible yogurt coconut cream frosting. The recipe is completely vegan, and it includes a gluten-free option that the whole family’s sure to love.
Kale, Asparagus and Leek Quiche with Quinoa Crust, Wendy at Fit-and-Frugal.com for Ancient Harvest
Seasonal spring veggies are the shining star in this brunch recipe – and we just love the gluten-free crust, made with our very own Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flour. It has a satisfying, hearty texture and is sturdy enough to stand up to a deliciously cheesy, plant-powered quiche.
Sweet Morning Potato, The Kitchn
Sweet potatoes for breakfast? Sure, why not? Topped with yogurt (use dairy-free for a vegan version) and maple syrup, these yams make a lovely addition to your Mother’s Day brunch spread. The chopped nuts on top add a delightful crunch, and you could also consider sprinkling a dash of cinnamon over the mix.
Chickpea Flour Pancakes, Vegan Richa (pictured)
A savory take on pancakes, this thick chickpea flour version is stuffed with grated cauliflower and finely chopped mushrooms, red onions and herbs for a unique brunch treat that Mom will surely love. Be sure to scroll down to the end of the recipe for suggested variations, like adding a tablespoon of Sriracha or dairy-free cheese to the batter.
