Kimchi Tofu Breakfast Tacos
Health Rating


1 cup Kimchi
1 block (12oz) Tofu, regular, extra firm (organic)
1 tbsp Sesame oil
1 1/2 tbsp Soy sauce, tamari (or coconut aminos)
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
5 leaves Kale (stems removed, julienned)
3 stalk(s) Green onion, scallion, ramp (sliced, divided)
1 1/2 tbsp Nutritional yeast (optional)
6 small tortilla(s) Tortilla, corn (gluten-free)
3 sprig Cilantro (coriander) (for garnish)
1/2 tsp Sesame seeds (for garnish)
1 fruit Lime (cut into wedges)


  1. Measure out 1 cup of kimchi and let come to room temperature. Open and drain tofu; give it a quick press to remove moisture if not using a vacuum-packed brand.
  2. In a large wok/skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add tofu, crumbling between your fingers, cook, stirring occasionally, for about 2 -3 minutes. Turn heat to medium, carefully add the soy sauce (tamari) and garlic powder, give a good stir.
  3. Add the kale and the green onion (scallions) and cook, stirring occasionally, until the kale wilts and becomes soft (cover partially to help with the process, about 5 – 7 minutes). 
  4. Add the nutritional yeast and kimchi, mix and cook just until kimchi has warmed through, about 1 minute or so. Do not overcook the kimchi, as overcooking will destroy some of the health benefits of the probiotics.
  5. Heat the tortillas, then layer your tortillas with the scramble mixture, a few sprigs of cilantro, a sprinkle of sesame seeds, and a squeeze of lime.
