I’ve officially turned into the sunlight-starved, thesis-writing master’s student who forgets what a “normal” schedule looks like. With just two weeks to write up the results gathered after months of geekfully collecting data, I welcome any excuse to write about something other than science. And so here we are, y’all. Tacos.

But these aren’t just any tacos. These are Vegan Breakfast Tacos. “Vegan? How can that be?”, you might ask, staring questioningly at the pile of scrambled yellow stuff in the photo. To which I respond…NUTRITIONAL YEAST. That’s right guys, it’s nutritional yeast week and it’s basically revolutionizing the vegan kitchen.

So back to your question about that yellow scrambled stuff…tofu! We’re throwing together nutritional yeast, tofu, and turmeric to make a “cheesey”, creamy, ultra-addictive filling to these Vegan Breakfast Tacos.

But why stop there? Let’s pull out all the stops and throw on some “bacony” smoky chickpeas, roasted cherry tomatoes, sliced avocado, radishes, and cilantro. That, friends is how we do vegan breakfast.
