Father’s Day is Sunday, so we thought we’d pass along some tasty recipes so you can treat your dad by making him a scrumptious vegan breakfast!
Animal dads on factory farms are denied all the joys of fatherhood and are never allowed even to set eyes on their children. So if you love spending time with your papa, it makes sense to let him know it by preparing food that no other fathers had to suffer for. And whether he is already a dedicated follower of a cruelty-free diet or is just waiting to be convinced, these winning recipes will show you care about your dad – and animals – and ensure that his special day gets off to a great start.
PETA’s Vegan Pancakes
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 cup soya milk
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
- Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Mix in the soya milk and oil, and with an electric mixer or wire whisk, beat just until the batter is smooth.
- Measure 1/2 cup batter onto a hot, oiled pan. When bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake (in about 2 minutes), lift with a spatula and flip. Cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from the pan and keep warm while you make the remaining pancakes.
- Serve warm with golden syrup, fresh fruit, jam or any other tasty topping that takes your fancy!
