If you don’t think you like tofu, try these tacos! Tofu has never been my favorite plant-based protein option – I love it when it’s fried or very crispy & otherwise just tolerate it, but I found myself eating this tofu scramble by the forkful.
Breakfast tacos are a great brunch option if you’re hosting for a large crowd with different dietary restrictions. It’s easy to set up a taco bar with vegan and non-vegan components (we make cheesy scrambled eggs for the rest of the family), and each family member can go wild with their own topping choices. I personally like mine fairly simple – scrambled tofu, some black beans, avocado (or guacamole) and thinly sliced radishes.
Another great way to enjoy this scrambled tofu is with a side of rosemary roasted potato wedges & hot sauce; honestly, I could probably eat that combo every morning! The mushroom and fennel mixture is a definite highlight as well. If you don’t like tofu, you could make the mushrooms your primary taco filling! Now the real question…are margaritas acceptable for brunch?!Print
