vegan breakfast tacos

People love tacos. People love breakfast. Therefore… people will go cuckoo bananas for vegan breakfast tacos, right?! That’s my logic, anyway.

This is a contender in the taco challenge we shared on YouTube. Maybe the best challenge ever?!

I’m pretty sure any reason to stuff your face with tacos first thing in the morning is legit. And I eat this recipe on the regular on lazy weekend mornings, and it’s very easy to throw together!

Just use the perfect tofu scramble recipe and make some slight modifications to my rosemary breakfast potatoes. This also includes my vegan sour cream recipe, which is totally addictive.

  • 2 yellow potatoes
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp chili flakes
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 chopped Field Roast Italian Style Sausage

tofu scramble

  • 2 C finely chopped kale
  • 1 finely chopped green onion
  • 1 C canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 C vegan cheddar style shreds
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • salsa of your choice
  • vegan sour cream


  1. Chop the potatoes into small cubes that will be fast to cook. In a pan heated to medium, add coconut oil and the potatoes and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes. Then add the paprika, cumin, chili flakes, sea salt, and ground black pepper and cook for another 10 minutes or until golden and crispy.

  2. Set the potatoes aside and brown the vegan Italian sausage in the same pan until cooked through and golden brown.

  3. Make the tofu scramble in the same pan. Once the scramble has come together, add in finely chopped kale, green onion, and black beans and heat through for 2 to 3 minutes stirring over medium heat. Then add the vegan cheddar style shreds on top and cover with a lid. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the cheese to melt.

  4. To assemble the tacos, heat your tortillas either in a pan or oven. Then use 2 tortillas per taco so they don’t break! Place some tofu scramble and potatoes in the tortilla, then top with salsa and vegan sour cream. Serve immediately.

  5. Leftovers can be re-heated easily in the pan, then assembled in the tortilla shells!
