Vegan Breakfast Scones

Scones of any type use a standard base recipe of flour, milk, butter and eggs. Vegans don’t have to miss out. By simply tweaking the ingredients it’s easy to create delicious dairy and egg free scones.

Like most scone recipes this one is very versatile and can be transformed into a sweet version or modified to include any savory flavours to your liking.  The great thing about scones is that they are so simple to prepare which makes them a good starter recipe for kids or anyone learning to cook.

With this particular breakfast version, it combines hearty flavours of sun ripened tomatoes, fresh and dried punchy herbs, like parsley and rosemary.
