Fresh and Healthy Breakfast Tacos

Coming to you from lockdown on the Sunshine Coast with my fresh and healthy Breakfast Tacos. Waking up this morning I knew I wanted to find a sense of calm, so I headed straight into the kitchen to make breakfast a little special. Which is why I am excited to introduce you to my Breakfast Tacos. These are the bomb! Best of all? They are easy to make and only require a handful of ingredients, most of which you'll probably have in your fridge and pantry. My fresh and healthy Breakfast Tacos are all about layering; a soft tortilla is layered with a light omelette, avocado cream, black beans, tomatillo, quick pickled red onions, micro herbs, flaky sea salt, cracked pepper and of course, a freeze squeeze of lime juice. How good does that sound!

What you are going to love about this breakfast

These fresh and healthy Breakfast tacos are so easy to make, and it all starts in the preparation and finishes by assembling the tacos with less fuss. Starting with my quick pickled red onions, you simply bring water and white wine vinegar with a few tablespoons of maple syrup, and flaky sea salt and pepper in a pan on medium heat to simmering, then pour over a bowl of sliced onions. They'll be ready when the pickling liquid has cooled, which is usually when the rest of the prep is done!

Next is quickly making the tomatillo; you'll simply blitz green and yellow tomatoes with shallots, green chilli, garlic, olive oil and freshly squeezed lime juice in a food processor, then season with flaky sea salt and cracked pepper. Setting the tomatillo aside in a small bowl, give the food processor a quick rinse then throw in two avocados (less skin and seed) and blitz until the avocado is silky smooth and creamy, then set aside in a small bowl. Following this you simply strain and wash the black beans in cold water, and set aside. Slice up a green chilli and set aside. And give the micro herbs a quick rinse under cold water. Finally, lay out the number of tortilla's you would like to eat, then get onto the quick egg omelette's. Simply place a pan on high heat and while this is happening, whisk two eggs with a fork in a small bowl. Throw a big knob of butter in the hot pan and pour the egg mixture into the pan. Lift and pan and continuously circulate the pan in your hand then flip the egg over and over until a long omelette is formed. Set aside on a plate, remove the pan from the heat, and when you have whisked the eggs for the next omelette then repeat until you've made enough omelette's (one omelette per person = 2 eggs).

Next is the best part - layering the ingredients! Place one omelette onto each tortilla, add lots of avocado cream, black beans and tomatillo, and garnish with slices of fresh green chilli, quick pickled onions and micro herbs. Season with flaky sea salt and cracked pepper, and a generous squeeze of fresh lemon juice. YUM.

Do I need any special equipment for this recipe?

You will need a food processor or a blender for this recipe. This is so you can blitz up the tomatillo salsa and make the avocado cream. 

 

Can I add meat?

Of course! Feel free to add chorizo and/or bacon.

 

How many taco's should I make per person?

I find these really filling because of the protein in the eggs, beans and avocado, so I usually eat one myself but Jason has two. I hope this helps!
