Healthy Breakfast Tacos w/ Scrambled Tofu & Roasted Potatoes – spiced with Southwest flavors, the hearty vegan breakfast tacos would be perfectly suitable for lunch or dinner too!
It’s Taco Time…For Breakfast!
It’s Taco Tuesday! Any time of day is a good time for tacos, but I specifically made these healthy tacos for breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so make sure you start it out with a winning combination of protein, carbs, vitamins, minerals and heathy fats. These Healthy Breakfast Tacos have it all – scrambled tofu, roasted potatoes and veggies, Southwest spices, and lots of toppings.
Easy Tofu Scramble
I brought you this Easy Tofu Scramble quite awhile ago. It’s delicious on it’s own, but it also makes the perfect protein packed addition to these vegan breakfast tacos. I make this scramble with mushrooms when I eat it alone, but sometimes I leave them out when I make these tacos. It’s great either way, so you choose which way you prefer!
Crispy Roasted Potatoes
What savory breakfast is complete without some sort of crispy potatoes? That’s right, none worth talking about! So, we’re not leaving them out of this delicious breakfast recipe either. In fact, we’re making them even better by roasting them with bell peppers, jalapeños, onion and spices.
Choose Your Toppings
Top these tacos off any way you please. I suggest salsa, avocado, sliced jalapeños, and my Creamy Cumin Ranch Dressing. Proving yet again, that my dairy free ranch dressing goes perfectly with everything! And if you’re feeling indulgent and really want to take it up a notch, try a slice of Field Roast Chao Cheese. They are not paying me to say that, nor did I receive free product..it’s just the best vegan cheese I have tried so far. Put the cheese on the tortilla first and then add the still hot potatoes and scrambled tofu so the cheese melts a bit. SO good!
Take your breakfast game up a notch with these Healthy Breakfast Tacos!
