Breakfast ‘Totchos’ With Mung Bean Scramble and Black Beans

Share

Tater tots form the base of this breakfast “totchos” recipe topped with black beans, vegan scramble, dairy-free cheese and sour cream.

What can I really say about this breakfast contribution except that it’s another tasty way to shovel scramble in your face! If you know me, you know I love tots, perhaps even more than french fries or onion rings … but do I have to pick? Don’t you love all your children equally?! I can’t pick. These totcho toppings are mere suggestions but it’s how I fix mine — you do whatever you want.

Whip up the vegan mung bean scramble ahead of time for an easy meal.
