Oh. My. Waffle Tacos!


Taco bell recently came out with a breakfast line, and like a lot of times when a crazy non-vegan menu hits the collective consciousness, vegans everywhere try to recreate it.  I saw a picture my friend Sheridan posted of a breakfast taco made vegan, I knew I had to try it!  Bianca, on Vegan Crunk, recently posted her interpretation as well, so I know vegan waffle tacos are a must try!





For the waffle batter, I cracked open Isa Does It for the recipe.  They were light, well flavored and absolutely delicious.  Josh raved about how good the waffles were.  They made a great base for the taco.





For the scramble, I use my go-to recipe from the PPK.  I modified it slightly, using onions, garlic, tofu and greens.  The spice mix is the key.


I warmed up two of these breakfast patties to go inside as well.  I usually don't like fake meat products, but this waffle taco experiment is definitely a treat.  These patties had an off putting color, but they were very tasty.







All I have to say, is that this was as delicious as it looks.  With a drizzle of maple syrup on top, the salty and savory tofu scramble gets a hit of sweetness, and the flavors all come together to make one amazing brunch food.  This is definitely not for the faint of heart.  The was pretty much all I had to eat that day, but it didn't leave me unhappy or uncomfortably full.  It's a great mix of flavors and textures, and it's definitely worth a try.  Bring this to a brunch with your non-vegan friends, and they'd surely be impressed.

  2. Yay, waffle taco time!! I think homemade waffles are a better idea since they're bigger. My little frozen waffle didn't hold much. Also, I'm totes adding onions and stuff to my scramble next time. And maple syrup!
