Simple, healthy and delicious veggie breakfast tacos!


Veggie filling

Scrambled eggs

Suggested garnishes, etc.


  1. To make the veggie filling: In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 2 teaspoons olive until shimmering. Add onions and a dash of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are softened and turning translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and a pinch of red pepper flakes, stir, and cook for another 30 seconds. Add the zucchini, yellow squash and bell pepper. Cook, stirring often, until the squash is softened and cooked through but not mushy, about 7 minutes. Remove the pan from heat and squeeze the juice of 1/2 of a lime over the veggies. Season to taste with salt, stir to combine, then set the pan aside.
  2. To scramble the eggs: Scramble the eggs in a bowl with a few dashes of hot sauce, a sprinkling of black pepper and a pinch of salt. Scramble over medium-low heat until the eggs are lightly set. Fold in the tomatoes and transfer the scrambled mixture to a bowl.
  3. To prepare the tacos: Warm each corn tortilla in a pan over medium heat, flipping occasionally. Transfer warmed tortillas to a plate and cover with a tea towel to keep them warm. Top each tortilla with scrambled eggs, followed by veggies, and garnish with a sprinkle of jalapeño, feta and cilantro. Finish with a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce and/or salsa.


Why buy organic? Bell peppers are notoriously high for pesticides and (this is news to me!) a lot of conventionally grown zucchini is genetically modified.
Make it gluten free: Use certified gluten-free/100% corn tortillas.
Make it tomato free: Omit the tomatoes and add sliced avocado instead.
Storage suggestions: Individual components (veggie mixture and scrambled eggs) keep well in the fridge for a few days. Just reheat and assemble tacos before eating.
Change it up: Substitute seasonal veggies for those you see listed here.
Other Mexican-themed breakfast recipes to enjoy: You’ll also love my breakfast quesadillas, huevos rancheros with avocado salsa verde, Tex-mex omelet, breakfast enchiladas with roasted poblano sauce, scrambled huevos rancheros and spinach frittata with sweet potato hash crust.
