When it comes to my perfect vegan Mother’s Day brunch, I envision a beautiful table spread set up in a lovely orchard under the blooming cherry trees. The table will be set with delicious and light vegan dishes, appetizers to desserts. Fresh cut flowers arranged in beautiful bouquets will complete the picture.
But if I come back to the not-so-idyllic real life, I’ll honestly settle for any vegan Mother’s day brunch scenario that wouldn’t end in me washing the dishes afterwards 🙂
As Mother’s Day approaches again, I decided to put together a list of delicious and (mostly) light vegan dishes that luckily will fit both my perfect brunch scenario and the one that I’m more likely to have in real life.

When I was selecting recipes for this list, I was looking for dishes that were vegan (obviously for a vegan blog), not overly processed, fairly easy to make, and capable of adding a beautiful color punch to our Mother’s Day brunch table.
I also wanted to make sure that our brunch guests wouldn’t leave the table feeling like they’ve just swallowed a brick. That’s why it was only logical to include veggie appetizers, sandwiches, salads, a few veggie-based pastas, and desserts made with fresh fruit and berries.
There’s a few of the more decadent recipes too, but even those tend to be on the lighter side.
So take a look at my recipe selection below, and please let me know which of these recipes you’d like to appear on your vegan Mother’s Day brunch table!
Please note that not all websites listed below are fully vegan, but all of the recipes on this list are vegan.
