I’m on a constant lookout for new breakfast recipe inspiration. Yes, I love my Superfood Protein Breakfast Cookies and I’m always in the mood for some Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Sheet Pan Pancakes, but sometimes a gal wants something a bit savoury!

Raise your hand if you’re ready for breakfast tacos! I don’t know about you, but I get a little giddy at the mere mention of breakfast tacos. Breakfast tacos turn everyday mornings into a reason for celebration. They are so simple and quick to whip up, and just look how tasty they look! They’re a vegan & gluten free fiesta on a plate!

You can, of course, enjoy these tacos any time of day. I may have had these tacos for dinner 3 times last week…. oops. Can you blame me though? Nothing against regular breakfast (I love breakfast), but I don’t have much patience for fancy AM meals. Like I’ve gone at least 8-10 hours without eating, I’m hungry. Feed me now.

In my opinion, the taco itself is arguably the most important part of the taco. These new Untortillas from Unbun are seriously THE BEST! The ingredients are minimal and so clean, and the texture is amazing! In the past I’ve never found a gluten free & plant based tortilla that really tickled my fancy, until the Untortilla!

Let me guess, you’re thinking, “vegan? How is that possible?” Staring questioningly at the pile of scrambled yellow “eggs” in the photo. It’s actually tofu, not eggs, and is flavoured and coloured with nutritional yeast and black salt! That’s right, these three ingredients are basically revolutionizing the vegan breakfast taco.

I made the vegan breakfast tacos with jalapeños, cilantro and hot salsa but if you’re not as spicy of a person, you can omit the jalapeños and use mild salsa. Either way, these tacos will make a tasty breakfast!

  1. Untortillas – These are hands down the best gluten free tacos I’ve ever had. And trust me, I’ve had alot of tacos! Every Unbun product I’ve ever tried has been absolutely incredible, while keeping the ingredients VERY clean! At Unbun, they believe that ingredients matter. They believe the best recipes are the simplest, and that delicious food starts with incredible ingredients.
  2. Medium tofu. I scrambled up firm tofu with spices and a splash of non dairy milk. This takes just minutes!
  3. Avocado. This is not optional! Savoury breakfast just NEED avocado to be complete in my opinion! Avocado adds some wonderful, satiating healthy fats to the recipe and the cool, creamy texture is perfect with the tofu scramble.
  4. Salsa. I chose spicy salsa because I love bold flavour of all kinds! However, mild would work perfectly fine!

That’s it! Optional toppings include diced tomato, red onion, jalapeños, cilantro and a sauce like my vegan chipotle mayo here! For that sauce I simply mixed vegan mayo and sriracha together.

To make it, just crumble tofu into a pan (leaving bigger chunks), add spices and a splash of non dairy milk, heat and enjoy. The best spices and flavourings to use are:

  • nutritional yeast
  • kala namak (black salt) if you can find it, it has an eggy taste to it…if not, regular sea salt is fine
  • turmeric for colour
  • paprika
  • garlic powder
  • black pepper

Sometimes I keep it very simple and just use nutritional yeast, turmeric, salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Gluten Free & Plant Based Breakfast Tacos
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 1 block medium firm tofu
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp black salt, this gives it the very "eggy" taste, however you can use regular sea salt instead
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup almond milk, or any non dairy milk
  • Untortilla shells
  • avocado
  • jalapeños
  • salsa
  • cilantro
  • vegan chipotle mayo , simply combine vegan mayo and sriracha


  1. Mash and crumble the tofu with a fork (or alternatively pulse a few times in a food processor until it is crumbled, making sure to leave some big clumps).
  2. Add the vegan butter to a frying pan and heat on medium. Add the tofu to the pan, as well as the nutritional yeast, paprika, turmeric, garlic salt, chili flakes, black salt, pepper, and dijon mustard. Fry until lightly browned.
  3. Add in the non dairy milk, and continue to cook until desired consistency. The longer you cook it the more the tofu will absorb the liquid.
  4. Assemble your breakfast tacos with the Untortillas, tofu scramble, avocado, salsa, cilantro, and vegan chipotle mayo! ENJOY!
