Running Tasmota zbbridge - can I address it directly from Node-RED?

Sorry for the possibly stupid post title.

I have a Sonoff Zigbee Bridge with Tasmota installed, and it's set to Zigbee2MQTT mode. I have installed Zigbee2MQTT as an add-on in Home Assistant, but although I think it's configured correctly and indeed it works a lot of the time and publishes sensor data to MQTT which I can see in Node-RED, I'm finding it unreliable as the HA add-on regularly crashes. I haven't been able to resolve that. I have run through the troubleshooting.

Does anyone have any tips on this, e.g. should I just fire up a new VM and install Zigbee2MQTT on its own Linux instance?

Is there some equivalent plugin that I can run within Node-RED?

My aim is simply to be able to do the following:

  1. Publish sensor data to MQTT topics that I define
  2. Be able to configure various sensors

Previously I had the Sonoff Bridge running Tasmota in a different mode, whereby Tasmota itself would send out the MQTT messages. There was no need for Zigbee2MQTT. But I was finding this cumbersome and I couldn't decode various different sensors. I quite liked Zigbee2MQTT as it provides a nice UI for configuring the sensors' parameters.
