As a child, ordering huevos rancheros at a restaurant was always my go-to. There was something about the dish that was so comforting. Even since going vegan, if vegan huevos rancheros are available, you know I am going to order it.

Since it has always been a favorite of mine, I thought it would be appropriate to create my own version. We also received a special request from Jasmine’s mom to make one, so you know we had to!

We made homemade refried beans and ranchero sauce for this recipe, but if you want to make things super quick and easy, you can always use a store bought beans and salsa (although we do recommend homemade, of course). For the vegan egg, we use our basic tofu scramble recipe, which does the trick entirely. It may also be interesting to try with the Be Leaf Vegan Fried Egg, so we may just have to experiment with that in the future!

Description

A vegan take on Huevos Rancheros that’s full of flavor and out-of-this-world delicious. Loaded with freshly made refried beans, vegan cheese, eggy tofu scramble, and a zesty ranchero sauce on top of a crispy tostada, this huevos rancheros recipe is sure to be a hit with anyone vegan or otherwise.


Ingredients

Ranchero Sauce

  • 3 medium tomatoes
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 Jalapeño, seeded and roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 3/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Other Ingredients

  • Cooking oil of choice
  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup refried beans
  • 1 1/2 cups tofu scramble (1 recipe)
  • 1/4 cup vegan mozzarella cheese shreds
  • Cilantro, roughly chopped (for garnish)
  • Avocado, sliced

Instructions

Ranchero Sauce

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.. Place the whole tomatoes the baking sheet and roast them in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove tomatoes from the oven and allow to cool.
  2. Add the tomatoes along with all of the remaining ingredients to a food processor and process for 1 minute or until smooth.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a medium saucepan on medium-low heat and allow to simmer the sauce for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Huevos Rancheros

  1. In a medium skillet, add in a thin layer of cooking oil (canola or vegetable preferred) and bring to medium-high heat.
  2. Add a single tortilla at a time to the pan allowing it to fry on each side for 30-45 seconds. Transfer the tortilla to a paper towel-lined plate to cool and continue until you have cooked all of the tortillas.
  3. To prepare the huevos rancheros, spread a generous layer of refried beans on each tortilla, then top it with tofu scramble, ranchero sauce, vegan cheese, cilantro, and avocado. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If you’d like to avoid frying the tortillas, you can heat in microwave, oven, or on an open flame.
