Vegan huevos rancheros is a super hearty and satisfying Mexican-inspired breakfast dish. I love making this with my vegan fried eggs but if you prefer you can make it with a tofu scramble. Whatever you’re feeling. (I’m just obsessed with this runny vegan egg yolk sauce and love to drizzle it all over my breakfast).

While there are several elements to this dish, every part is actually very easy. Really it’s just preparing the vegan eggs which takes about 20 minutes and heating up salsa, refried beans, and tortillas. Then you have this epic breakfast dish that will amaze!

To make vegan huevos rancheros:

vegan egg yolk sauce taste just like eggs!

Start by preparing the vegan eggs. Make the vegan fried eggs OR the tofu scramble according to the recipe instructions. Remember, black salt (also called kala namak) is KEY to making these egg dishes taste eggy, so make sure you pick some up.

When making the fried eggs, I like to prepare the yolk portion of the recipe and set it aside. Prepare the rest of the ingredients. Then I pan fry the tofu (egg whites) last, just before serving and assemble the fried eggs directly on the plate with the rest of the ingredients.

Now heat the salsa in a small saucepan over medium-high heat or warm it in the microwave. Do the same in a separate pot or dish to heat the refried beans.

toast tortillas on your gas stove

There are three different options for heating the tortillas.

  • On a gas stove (my favourite method), use tongs to hold a tortilla over a flame for about 20 seconds per side to warm them.
  • OR put a dry frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add one tortilla at a time and toast on one side until lightly golden and flip to do the same to the other side, 20 – 30 seconds per side.
  • OR preheat your oven to 350F (180C), wrapping the tortillas in foil and bake for 10 to 15 minutes until warmed throughout.

To serve the vegan huevos rancheros: spread a warmed tortilla with the refried beans. Top with a vegan fried egg or tofu scramble. Spoon over the salsa and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and jalapeno. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make either 2 large servings with two tortillas on each plate, or 4 smaller servings with one tortilla each. Serve hot.
