Vegan Breakfast Tortilla Cups with Tofu Scramble

Vegan Breakfast Tortilla Cups with Tofu Scramble are easy to make and delicious for breakfast, brunch, or a snack. They use common ingredients, just some corn tortillas, tofu, and vegan cheese. Add whatever else you like to these to make them your own. Potato chunks or has browns, bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, chives, and a bit of salsa are what I added and they were yummy.

Don’t Skimp on the Vegan Cheese!

And vegan cheese, of course. I used Daiya mozzarella shreds because that’s what I can find at my local grocery. I prefer the Chao shreds but I’m not complaining. I’ve been vegan long enough to remember when there was no choice … if I was lucky I could get a tiny block of plastic-like soy cheese from the local food co-op for $16. I remember how excited I was when Daiya came out with their products several years ago! It’s delicious (but Chao is even better … ).

Start by placing corn tortillas in jumbo cupcake pans, like this. They might crack just a little at the folds but it doesn’t really matter, the vegan cheese will hold it all together.

Vegan Breakfast Tortilla Cups with Tofu Scramble are Easy to Make!

Make the tofu scramble. It’s just tofu, a dash of turmeric for color, onion powder, garlic powder, and a little smoked paprika with salt and pepper to taste. Smash it up together with a potato masher or a fork until it’s broken down but still chunky.

Add the cheese to the bottom of the tortilla cup.

Spoon in the tofu scramble and add whatever you like. I added bell pepper, mushrooms, onions, and some potato chunks along with salt and pepper and a few red pepper flakes.

Bake the Tortilla Cups

Bake the breakfast tortilla cups at 350 for about 10 minutes or until the tortillas start to brown and the cheese is starting to melt.

To make these even yummier, add some salsa and more cheese and return to the oven for a few minutes, just until the cheese is melted.
