Breakfast Tacos: Elevate your morning meal.

Want to take your breakfast up a notch? Tacos are the answer—they are delicious, healthy, and satisfying (and oh so simple). What’s not to love?

 

Morning, noon, or night, tacos are always a hit. Always. And breakfast tacos could not be easier. All you need are tortillas, a spread or sauce, eggs, and toppings of your choice. Together, protein-packed eggs, healthy fat from avocado, and vibrant veggies create a nourishing meal that will carry you through to lunch. And yes, you can eat breakfast tacos for lunch and dinner, too. In fact, they are perfect for using up what may be left hiding in your fridge at week’s end, or when you just want something satisfying yet quick.  

 

The beauty of breakfast tacos is that you can be adventurous or simplistic with the ingredients, there is no right or wrong. Listed below are the ingredients for the tacos pictured here, but you can experiment with endless options.*

 

Makes 1-2 servings.

 

Ingredients:

2 wheat flour tortillas - smaller corn tortillas work well too (and are gluten-free)  

1 taco has ½ smashed avocado, the other taco has 2 Tbsp hummus, smeared

2 eggs, fried in ghee

2 radishes, thinly sliced

Heaping handful of spinach, sautéed in ghee

¼ cup roasted broccoli (leftover from a previous meal)

Sunflower microgreens

Black pepper

Pink Himalayan salt

 

Directions:

1.  Warm up your tortillas in a skillet with a little oil over medium high heat for a couple minutes on each side.

2.  Using a drizzle of olive oil or ghee, sauté the spinach. Sprinkle with salt. Wipe pan, and add a bit of ghee to fry each egg (scrambled eggs work well too).

3.  While the eggs are cooking, spread your base on the warmed tortillas (1 with ½ avocado, 1 with 2 Tbsp hummus). Next, add your sautéed spinach to each tortilla and top with the cooked egg. Layer on the toppings: roasted broccoli, radishes, and microgreens. Finish with a sprinkle of pink Himalayan salt and freshly ground pepper. Enjoy immediately.

*Additional taco filling and garnish options, include: scrambled eggs, black beans, feta cheese, roasted veggies (sweet potatoes, cauliflower, squash), sautéed kale, chopped romaine, cilantro, sautéed mushrooms, tomatoes, pickled or raw red onions, sesame seeds, salsa, cashew cream, tahini drizzle, red pepper flakes, hot sauce, sliced jalapenos, lime juice, or turmeric.
