Breakfast Tacos

I love Breakfast Tacos! Years ago the breakfast tacos I made were completely different from those I make today, but we enjoy them just as much if not more. These tacos are very versatile and can be adapted for even the pickiest eaters or omnivores in your household.

Breakfast Tacos


  • 1/2 an onion, diced
  • 1/2 a bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 a jalapeno (remove seeds for less heat)
  • 1 handful of mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 cup cut cauliflower
  • 1 large baked potato, diced
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of cooked beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • salt (or black salt), pepper, garlic, and turmeric to taste
  • tortillas of your choice, use corn tortillas for a gluten-free option


  1. Add onions, peppers and mushrooms to a skillet and cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, adding a little water if veggies start to stick.
  2. Once veggies are beginning to soften stir in potatoes, quinoa, and beans.  They will now begin to stick.
  3. As soon as everything is incorporated and warm add nutritional yeast and spices.
  4. Spoon this into tortillas and serve.


I love to eat these Breakfast Tacos with salsa! This reheats very well and will keep several days when refrigerated. If you are using corn tortillas know that they are crumbly and will likely break. These can be layered in a casserole dish instead of rolled into the tortillas for a quicker option. I’ve also wrapped them in parchment paper to hold them together. I’ve served these to an omni group and they LOVED them.

If you are eating plant-based but having a hard time convincing your family this is an easy dish to adapt for them. Things like eggs or cheese are easily added but not really needed.

Are you a Breakfast Taco lover too?

Meal Plan Monday: Trying New Dinner Recipes

Breakfast Tacos

Breakfast Tacos

We really enjoyed last week’s Soup Week. It was probably the most delicious week we have had in a while.

We didn’t do our normal weekly grocery trip this weekend, I’m sure we will have to go at some point this week but my hope is it use up odds and ends to save a little money and avoid another shopping trip. We will have to run out for more fruit. We are down to two bunches of bananas, a dozen apples, and 2 oranges along with a few other splurge items. That wont last long around here.

Meal Plan

Breakfast will be a little different this week. We normally have oatmeal most days but we are almost out so I’ll be mixing it up a bit. We will probably have pancakes, baked sweet potatoes, Breakfast Quinoa, and maybe even cereal.

Lunch will be leftovers most days. My kids like almond butter sandwiches a lot, I usually serve them with sliced apples. I’ve been craving salads since the last Healthy Cravings so I may have a few gargantuan Italian salads. I may even make a pot of soup too to use up the veggies I don’t really like eating plain, like celery.

Snack is usually fruit. Apples, bananas, and oranges are typically available but right now I also have a lovely pineapple and blueberries. We may have smoothies too because I have a big bag of kale.

Dinner may be a little tougher without making a trip to the store. I love breakfast for dinner. Last week I made Breakfast Tacos for a potluck and everyone loved them. I’ve been daydreaming about those tacos ever since. I’d love to do a Chickpea-Quinoa Stir Fry too, maybe even add a little of that pineapple. I’m in the beginning stages of coming up with a sautéed mushroom and lentil dish, I’m still trying to decided what I want to serve it over, maybe potatoes or rice but I’d really like a more interesting (and GF) option. If I really get creative we may have homemade GF pizza. I haven’t made gluten-free pizza before but I’d like to give it a try soon. I have a medium-sized pot of beans soaking now so I’ll be making something with those as well.

If these new recipes turn out I’ll be sharing them, if not…well just forget I mentioned it.

What are you eating this week? I like trying new things and mixing and matching different ingredients I think (hope) will taste good together. During the day I’m content with eating the same thing most days but in the evening I want variety. What about you?
