I love a good savory breakfast and I love tacos. So let's have some delicious and healthy vegan breakfast tacos. And if you like mexican food as much as I do, then you'll have most ingredients in your fridge and pantry, so you can whip these up often and in no time.
I basically always have smoked tofu in my fridge, because it's one of my favorite meat replacements. It's flavorful, smokey and salty. I use it for scrambled tofu, tacos, chili and bolognese. So much better than regular tofu! And for the spices, I recommend bying a few good chili powders like ancho and chipotle to always have at hand for a good mexican feast. I also love smoked paprika, because it's not hot but gives hearty dishes such a deep flavor. Cumin powder and a few other easy peasy ingredients, and we can get this breakfast fiesta started!
