Tofu scramble paired with black beans, pico de gallo, avocado wrapped in a burrito. This vegan breakfast burrito recipe is the best thing to wake up to.
Mmmmm savory breakfast.
Don’t get me wrong, I love me some vegan pancakes, but vegan savory breakfasts can be harder to come by.
Tofu scramble is one of my favorites when it comes to savory plant-based breakfasts. It’s so easy to make and tastes great – especially in a burrito!
Tofu scramble breakfast burrito ingredients
Tofu scramble is the main filler in the burritos. From there, we add:
- black beans (can use pinto beans, refried, etc)
- pice de gallo
- shredded lettuce
Feel free to add whatever fillings you’d like! Salsa, guacamole, rice, corn, olives, it’s all game here.
How to make tofu scramble
- Start out by draining and pressing the tofu. The longer you press it, the better. I usually let it sit for 20-30 minutes, but at minimum, 10 minutes.
- Using a fork, crumble tofu. Larger pieces are okay, but you can crumble it as much or little as you’d like.
- Sautee with seasonings for a few minutes until heated through
What kind of tofu is best for tofu scramble
I personally like firm tofu. It’s not too firm, yet not too soft.
Once the tofu scramble is cooked through, add all the toppings you desire and roll the burrito.
How to roll a breakfast burrito
Start by folding the side closest to you over and folding the sides in.
With a “roll and tuck” technique, roll the burrito as you tuck in the sides.
Put the edge on the bottom to seal the burrito.
Tip: Burritos roll best when the tortilla is warm. Heat up in the microwave for about 10 seconds before wrapping.
Tofu scramble breakfast burritos are a great savory vegan breakfast idea. They are super easy to whip up and can be made in advance for busy mornings.
Freeze burritos by wrapping in foil individually. Simply unwrap and microwave for an easy breakfast to take to work or on the go.
