A satisfying and protein-packed vegan breakfast! Southwestern tofu scramble with black beans, tomato, cilantro. (Vegan, gluten-free)
I love hearty, filling breakfasts on the weekends whenever we have a little more time to linger. This recipe is adapted from my Tofu Scramble, but with a southwestern flare! The black beans + tofu combine for a satisfying protein boost, plus a fresh burst of cilantro to brighten it up. It’s great served with avocado and salsa, and I love putting it in tortillas for a breakfast taco or burrito. Kick it up with jalapeno, cayenne pepper, or chipotle if you like some spice!
