Vegan Matzo Brei

Let’s face it, Passover Breakfasts leave a lot to be desired. From dusty, matzo-oh’s to matzo boards with schmear, I’m on a mission to upgrade your Passover morning meal.

Vegan Matzo Brei

Morning person or not, everyone loves breakfasts. Everyone loves breakfasts because breakfast food tastes great. It’s a universally proven fact of life.

That’s the exact reason why Matzo Brei’s one of my favorite Passover staples.

  1. It’s delicious

  2. Its presence on the table means I get to eat something delicious for breakfast

During Passover, Jews refrain from eating leavened foods like bread, which is why Matzo Brei’s such a big thing, especially for breakfast. You can make huge pancakes, make it scrambled, make it either sweet or savory- every family has their own favorite way. This recipe we’re making today tastes like the traditional version, just much more healthy and vegan-friendly.

Vegan Matzo Brei is healthier and tastes incredibly similar to the original. It’s made without eggs or dairy, but delicious nonetheless.

This Vegan Matzo Brei recipe is a Passover treat that everyone in your household will thank you for.
