Gluten-Free Zucchini Egg Breakfast Tacos are a fun way to have eggs, zucchini, and avocado for breakfast or lunch. Corn tortillas make tacos gluten-free.
Lazy Tulip Cafe, Barrie
These Zucchini Egg Breakfast Tacos were inspired by the ones I had at the Lazy Tulip Cafe in Barrie, Ontario. It was the first breakfast of our anniversary weekend away. We like to search out independently owned cafes that cater to a gluten-free clientele. Thanks to internet research, we have much more success in trying new places than we did in the days of driving by and judging a location solely by the appearance of the signage and front of the building. That still works pretty well for us, but it’s nice to be able to plan ahead and be sure we have a promising, interesting destination lined up.
The Lazy Tulip Cafe appealed to us with its emphasis on gluten-free options, real food, and locally raised meats. It’s tucked around the corner from Barrie’s main street. A self-described “funky, eclectic cafe,” the interior is bright, cheery, and comfortable. The staff was friendly, and the food was good.
Do-Aheads for Zucchini Egg Breakfast Tacos
If you’re serving Gluten-Free Zucchini Egg Breakfast Tacos to guests for a special breakfast or brunch, you can reduce stress by preparing a few things the night before. If you wash and slice your zucchini, shred your cheese, and have your other ingredients ready to go, it won’t take long to throw these together.
Should you want to slice your avocado ahead of time, toss your slices with a little lemon juice to keep them from turning dark. I personally wouldn’t slice them more than an hour ahead, as they loose freshness very quickly. I like to buy avocados a little on the green side and store them in the refrigerator. When I plan to use one, I take it out a day or two before and leave it at room temperature to finish ripening up. That way I avoid the bruising that can happen if I bring avocados home from the store ripe and ready to use.
Corn tortillas make tacos accessible for gluten-free eaters. Some can be dry and fall apart, so it’s worthwhile searching out soft, flexible ones. I’ve been served GF tacos on a double corn tortilla, a great solution if yours are tending to fall apart.
