The Vegan Waffle Taco



  • 1 box accidentally vegan pancake mix  (we used Bisquick brand)
  • Approximately 1 1/3 cups almond milk (follow the pancake mix instructions, using almond milk instead of cow’s milk)
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp.  soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 Tbsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1 lb. extra-firm tofu, drained and cubed
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 pkg. frozen vegan breakfast sausages
  • 1 pkg. vegan cheese slices (or shreds)


  • Cook the waffles according to the package directions, using the almond milk instead of cow’s milk and the applesauce instead of an egg for the batter. If you don’t have a wafflemaker, make pancake tacos instead!

  • Add the olive oil, soy sauce, garlic, onion powder, thyme, turmeric, paprika, and garlic salt to a sauté pan. Cook on low heat and stir. Once the mixture begins to heat, spread evenly to coat the bottom of pan.
  • Crumble the tofu through your fingers and toss into the mixture, stirring often.
  • Once the scramble becomes firm to the touch and begins to brown (about 7 to 10 minutes), squeeze in the lemon juice and add in the nutritional yeast. Stir until coated. Allow to cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes.
