Scrambled Tofu Rancheros - Fork and Beans


Scrambled Tofu Rancheros Recipe

Serves 2


  • 1 recipe Scrambled Tofu Eggs (see below)
  • 1 recipe Pinto Beans (see below)
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 1/4 c. diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 2 Tb thinly diced onions
  • 1 Tb cilantro, chopped
  • sliced jalapenos (optional)
  • top with non-dairy sour cream (or cashew cream)
  • 4 lime wedges

For the Tofu “eggs”:

  • 1/2 block extra firm tofu, crumbled
  • sprinkle of turmeric (for coloring)
  • sprinkle of smoked paprika (for coloring)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  1. In a skillet, heat 1 Tb oil.
  2. Place all of the ingredients inside until fully colored and heated through. This should only take 3-5 minutes.

For the Beans:

You can use the leftover chili from my Vegan Chili Fries recipe OR:

  • 1 can pinto beans, drained
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • salt, to taste
  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and blender until chunky. Add a splash (start with 1 Tb) of non-dairy milk if you want it smoother. Use a rubber spatula to get beans off of the sides.
  2. Place into a small sauce and gently heat on low until heated through.


  1. Throw everything onto a corn tortilla and enjoy! Bone Ape Tit :)

  12. This looks amaaazzzzing! Super pumped to make it for breakfast tomorrow — weekend breakfasts have been the hardest to figure out since going vegan. Super excited! (Am I the worst follower ever to tell you that it’s actually Bon Appetit, which means Good Appetite in French? :) )

    • Hi Kim! Thanks for the comment and I hope you enjoy your breakfast tomorrow :) PS You are not the worst follower at all for correcting me. Truth be told, I know exactly how it’s spelled, it’s just a joke I say every time I eat dinner with Matt–I have to always say Bone Ape Tit. I’m immature and it makes me laugh…

      • HAHAHA!! I have to use it on Taren, then, because he’s equally amused by those sorts of things. Also, if I could include the word “bum” or “poop”, that would take it through the roof. Have I mentioned he’s a respected Investment Advisor?! lol Boys. What would we do without them?
