These Vegan Breakfast Tacos combine veggie scrambled tofu with spicy soyrizo - add your favorite toppings and you have the perfect weekend breakfast.
During the week I am all about smoothies for breakfast. Easy way to get some fruit in first thing in the morning. Not to mention you can grab it and go.
But when the weekends come around I like taking a break from smoothies and switching it up. And these Vegan Breakfast Tacos are a tasty go-to.
Before I was vegan I used to make something similar to these tacos. With a couple easy swaps - tofu for eggs and soyrizo for bacon - they are completely vegan-ized and taste amazing!
Turmeric is what gives the tofu the "eggy" yellow color. That color combined with the texture of firm tofu really gives you the feeling of eggs.
Once you have everything cooked up - add in some veggies and top with cilantro, avocado and salsa. Perfect Saturday breakfast!
