Description

These easy vegan breakfast tacos take just a few minutes to make from soft tofu which creates a soft, fluffy tofu scramble you can’t resist. 


Ingredients

For the Eggs:

  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 1 (16 oz) package soft tofu, drained (Make sure it is NOT silken tofu)
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric 
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 cup shredded vegan cheese
  • Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

For the Tacos:

  • 56 small corn tortillas
  • Salsa
  • Avocado
  • Hot sauce

Instructions

  1. Add butter to a large skillet over medium-high heat to melt. 
  2. Add the tofu, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, turmeric, and paprika. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to gently break apart tofu into large, bite size pieces. 
  3. Sauté until most of the liquid from the tofu has cooked off. Stir in salt, pepper, and cheese. Cook over low heat until cheese is melted. 
  4. Assemble tacos. Makes enough filling for about 6 tacos.
