Take your tofu scramble to the next level with these Easy Tofu Breakfast Tacos! They’re a deliciously simple and decadent vegan breakfast or brunch idea.
Y’all, I love a tofu scramble, so it’s almost shocking to me that I am just now getting the idea to make Vegan Breakfast Tacos with a tofu scramble filling! I love to make them in the air fryer or on the stove. I’ll eat a scramble solo, on a salad, or pretty much any other way you’d like to serve one to me.
Making Vegan Breakfast Tacos
These tacos start with a basic stovetop tofu scramble.
I wanted this scramble to be super flavorful, so instead of just sauteing the tofu, you crumble it into a bowl and toss it with a marinade for a few minutes before cooking.
Marinating it first gives your pressed tofu the chance to soak in more flavor than it would have if you’d just sauteed in the same sauce.
Cook up the marinated tofu with fresh veggies in your pan, and you’re ready to assemble your vegan breakfast tacos! Layer on sliced avocado and pickled jalapenos.
You can use store-bought pickled jalapenos or make your own. Either way, this vegan breakfast or brunch dish is hearty, decadent, and satisfying with a little bit of heat!
Serve up your Tofu Scramble Breakfast Tacos on soft tortillas. Either whole wheat or white work fine. Brunch is ready!
Preparing Your Tofu
To get the right texture for the tofu scramble, I definitely recommend pressing your block of firm or extra firm tofu.
A good tofu scramble starts with a good marinade, and pressing with the EZ Tofu Press gets around 1/2 cup of water out of a block of tofu, so it can drink in plenty of that good, good flavor.
I love pressing my tofu with the EZ Tofu Press, because it gets the job done quickly, and the block ends up even in shape. Evenness isn’t super important for a recipe like this, since you’re crumbling the tofu anyway, but quickness is always a plus!

Easy Tofu Breakfast Tacos
For the Tofu
- 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 block extra firm tofu – pressed
For the Tofu Scramble
Marinate the Tofu
- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together all of the tofu ingredients except the tofu itself, then crumble the tofu into the bowl. Stir to coat, and set aside while you prep everything else.
Make the Tofu Scramble
- Heat the oil on medium-high in a large skillet. Add the onion and bell pepper, and cook until the onion begins to brown, about 5 minutes.
- Add the zucchini, tofu, and any leftover marinade, and cook until the zucchini softens, about 5-6 more minutes.
- Add the corn and nutritional yeast. Cook, stirring, just to heat the corn through, about a minute.
Make the Breakfast Tacos
- Divide the tofu scramble between your taco shells, then top with guac and pickled jalapenos.
