Mexican Scramble

Everyone knows that I am a savory breakfast kind of gal, and my favorite cuisine is Mexican. Some mornings I wake up and all I want is huevos rancheros, so I came up with this healthy vegan recipe to satisfy my savory Mexican breakfast cravings. The tofu and beans in this dish help me start my day with a huge protein punch!
