Tacos: Ejotes con Tofuevos; Green Bean Scramble


I’m gonna keep today’s intro mad simple. My name is Rudy and I love breakfast (something I’m sure I’ve mentioned before). I’m always looking for ways to have it outside of ‘normal business’ hours – this is one of those ways.

Today takes a dish I had quite a bit growing up (ejotes con huevo), makes it vegan and puts it into the loving embrace of a corn tortilla, tops it with mashed avocado and salsa fresca.

Ain’t Nothing wrong with that!

Quick Note: The Taco Filling itself makes a great breakfast main dish alongside some beans, avocado, salsa and tortillas. Just a thought!
