breakfast tacos are a staple in some parts of Texas. Their origin is somewhat disputed, but from my understanding they first appeared in San Antonio in the 1970s before being appropriated by Austin and becoming that city’s iconic food. The “traditional” breakfast taco is a flour tortilla filled with scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, melted cheese and potatoes.
This is a great recipe for anyone who’s on a high protein, low carb diet. The base of hummus provides plenty of protein and flavour and then there’s a good mix of vegetables both raw and cooked. I’ve included a basic hummus recipe to start things off, but I think store-bought hummus is totally justified to save time and effort.
Tofu scrambles are a popular and low carb vegan breakfast option especially for beginners. Its incredibly easy, simply drain the tofu then crumble using your hands or a fork before sautéing. Its great served over toast or alongside some grilled vegetables. Tofu, unlike eggs, has very little flavour of it own so it takes plenty of seasoning to give the dish flavour.
Mushroom toast is a classic weekend breakfast option. For this vegan version the cream is replaced with a combination of coconut cream and almond milk. The coconut flavour and slight sweetness of the almond milk are covered by the strong mustard flavours.
Inspired by carrot cake, these oats combine grated carrot, cinnamon and dates. They are a sneaky way to get a serve of vege into your breakfast plus they are free from refined sugar.
A quick and easy one-pan hot breakfast. Great for a weekend breakfast, it has an excellent rustic look especially when served still in the pan.
A fresh and vibrant breakfast bowl with lots of fresh vegetables balanced with spicy and kimchi and rich sauteed mushrooms. This recipe is pretty straight forward, I used pre-prepared kimchi its not too difficult to make your own but it will take a few days.
These are a great vegan breakfast option with no refined sugar and well suited for meal prepping. They store well in the fridge and can be kept for 3-4 days. If you have a sweet tooth then increase the amount of maple syrup.
this is a great option for meal prepping, it stores very well and can be kept in garb and go jars or containers.
A different idea to try out for weekend breakfasts. This casserole combine fluffy eggs with crispy bacon and a touch of spice from jalapenos.
