Are tacos one of those foods you could literally eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Well you and I both. I mean, there’s even a taco cleanse cookbook out there where you literally eat tacos all day, everyday and lose weight. So you and I cannot be the only taco lovers out there. If anyone has tried this taco cleanse, I’d seriously love to hear about those results. Tacos have become one of my go-to weeknight meals because they can be thrown together in a short amount of time, as well as a well balanced trifecta of vegetables, carbs, and protein. This vegan taco scramble taco recipe is an ideal breakfast recipe and was designed for taco lovers, like me and you, in mind. Tofu scramble is a common vegan breakfast recipe because it makes a great substitute for egg scramble. Add some veggies and wrap it in a little tortilla and you got yourself a vegan breakfast taco. If you dig my style, load up on all the guacamole and salsa for a pure indulgence. See it is possible (and healthy) to eat tacos all day everyday. Keep reading for the details.
First you’ll wanna press your tofu to remove as much water as possible. If you don’t the scramble will be a little soggy. Up until recently, I typically use a plate, some paper towels, tofu block, more paper towels, a plate, and something heavy sitting on top. Now I use my crockpot! Remove the heavy ceramic bowl and line bottom with paper towels. Add your tofu block and top with more paper towels. Add the bowl back on top and bam you got yourself a legit makeshift tofu press. They also make specific tofu presses so if you’re fancy, use that.
Tip: Crumble tofu in hand or using a fork. I found crumbling it with my hands work best.
