Vegan brunch or breakfast
Every mum deserves the best on Mother's Day, that's why you should kick things off with a stack of vegan banana pancakes with fresh berries, a drizzle of maple syrup and a cuppa, of course. These are a guaranteed crowd pleaser and, with a texture this light and fluffy, no one would guess they're vegan.
Start your vegan Sunday lunch with a colourful bowl of leek, pea and watercress soup. It's packed with green goodness and truly delicious. Finish with a flourish of good quality olive oil and vegan crème fraîche or yogurt, if you like.
Vegan Sunday lunch
You can't go wrong with a hearty vegan cottage pie for Sunday lunch. We've added a dash of soy sauce and red wine to the lentil filling to boost the rich, umami flavour, before topping it with a vibrant sweet potato mash. Serve alongside some steamed seasonal greens, dressed with a little salt and olive oil.
Make sure everyone saves room for dessert because our vegan rice pudding with pear and berry compote is sweet, creamy and not to be missed. We've used almond milk to keep this pud dairy-free, which adds extra nuttiness that works wonderfully with the fruit, vanilla and maple syrup.
Homemade edible vegan gifts
Nothing says 'I love you' like homemade treats, so why not go the extra mile and bake a batch of these oaty vegan flapjacks this Mother's Day? They're easy enough for little ones to help – and you can add any combination of nuts and fruit, to make sure these really hit the spot. Once they've cooled, simply slice and pop into a pretty biscuit jar or tin.
