Breakfast Taco Brunch with Heirloom Tomato Pico de Gallo

Adventures, Breakfast, Healthy, Quick and Easy, Summer

Running this blog has taught me so much about people’s allergies and diets. Every time I post, there are usually a few questions like,  “can I make this nut free?” “can I make this without eggs?” “can I make this meal more plant-based?”

A lot of times it’s hard for me to answer those questions because I never test recipes with variations like that, which makes it tough to get a confident, firm answer. That’s why I’m so excited with today’s post. For this post, I teamed up with JUST to show you their new product that literally blew my mind.

It is an egg-free scramble. It tastes like eggs, it scrambles like eggs and looks exactly like eggs, but it’s magic ingredient? The 4,400 year old legume called mung bean. It’s a delicious, protein-packed, non-GMO, cholesterol-free product that cooks and tastes like a chicken egg.

You simply pour it out into a non-stick skillet and cook it like you would regular scrambled eggs. It’s super simple. The color comes from carrot extract and turmeric. The texture is literally identical—it’s wild (watch this video to learn more!). I love watching the people’s reactions.

I decided to throw a delicious, low-key and easy brunch together that’s also allergen-friendly and plant-based. Everyone has a different diet these days but it’s actually a lot easier to accommodate these preferences than you think. In fact, you might be surprised how much better your meal tastes by doing so!

For brunch, I scrambled Just Egg and put it in my favorite tortillas, paired it up with a watermelon fruit salad, along with heirloom tomato pico de gallo and iced coffees because summer! It was glorious and delicious and didn’t taste one bit differently than your egg breakfast taco.

You can find it at select retailers soon! Here’s a link to bring Just Egg to your favorite local grocery store or restaurant:

    I’m an egg lover but they give my husband terrible gas, but the Just Eggs satisfy us both. Also in your pan shot where did you find that cute Oil holder?

    Here in Australia we have an amazing vegan egg product that comes in a cute egg carton but it’s a powder you mix with water. I had to remove eggs for a while but couldn’t live without my cheese, egg and avo wrap on weekends and this was a great substitute. I have eggs back in my diet (bought direct from the farmer, organic and cage free) but I keep this mix in the cupboard as I still prefer it occasionally.
