Switch up your taco Tuesday routine with these tasty tofu breakfast tacos with coconut bacon. You’ll be making them on repeat!


For the Coconut Bacon:

  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut chips
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the Tofu:

  • 1 tablespoon olive or canola oil
  • 15 oz. extra firm tofu, crumbled
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Salt and ground black pepper, to taste

For the Beans:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 (15 oz) can low sodium black beans
  • 2 tablespoons salsa

To Serve:

  • Tortillas, hot sauce, shredded cheese (choose dairy free cheese for vegan tacos), cilantro, avocado, sour cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, add the coconut bacon ingredients and toss well with a wooden spoon to coat the coconut chip in marinade. Spread evenly onto a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until chips turn dark brown. (Watch closely in the last few minutes of baking to make sure they do not burn!) Lay chips on cooling rack until cool.
  3. In a skillet, add the oil and tofu. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until edges of tofu begin to lightly brown. Stir in the seasonings, milk, and nutritional yeast. Cook another 2-3 minutes or until almond milk has evaporated. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl.
  4. In the same skillet, add 1 tablespoon oil and garlic. Cook one minute and then add the black beans and salsa. Bring to a simmer and stir. Cook 5-6 minutes or until beans are warmed through and sauce begins to thicken.
  5. To assemble tacos, layer beans, tofu, bacon, and desired toppings into tortilla and serve.
