Vegan Breakfast Burrito

Vegan Breakfast Burrito PinThis Vegan Breakfast Burrito recipe is delicious and filling. If you prepare the tofu scramble and potatoes the night before, all you’ll need to do is reheat them and assemble the burrito for a quick and easy healthy plant-based breakfast.

To make our delicious breakfast burrito, we combined our Easy Tofu Scramble recipe and our Oven Roasted Red Potatoes recipe and wrapped them up in a tortilla. We used flour tortillas since they make better wraps, but you can also use corn tortillas if you avoid gluten. Eat them open-faced, tostada-style if you can’t wrap them without splitting the tortilla.

Our roasted potatoes use a little olive oil to get them to come out crispy and prevent them from sticking to the baking sheet. However, if you prefer to avoid oil altogether, you can roast them without oil but they might be a little mushy and may stick to the pan.

We’ve tried several different oil-free roasted potato recipes and none came out well. That could be due to the high altitude in Denver. They either came out mushy or burned. We’d love to hear your experiences roasting without oil in the comments below.

This is one of our favorite plant-based breakfast recipes! You don’t have to give up your delicious breakfast burritos just because you eat a plant-based diet!

Instructions
Let's Cook the Oven Roasted Red Potatoes
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Wash and cut the potatoes into small pieces. Leave the skins. They have lots of nutrients. Place in a large mixing bowl.

  3. Add the vegetable broth to the bowl and toss to coat the potatoes evenly. Let stand 5 minutes so the broth absorbs into the potatoes.
  4. Add the oil and seasonings to the bowl and toss to mix well.
  5. Put the potatoes on the baking sheet and spread evenly.

  6. Cook for 45 minutes or until golden brown, moving the potatoes around half way through to cook more evenly.

Let's Cook the Tofu Scramble
  1. Drain the tofu over the sink to get as much water out as possible. Place a cheesecloth or double paper towel on a plate or cutting board. Put the tofu brick on one side of the towel and fold the towel over the tofu to cover it. Place a heavy pan or object on top of the tofu to press it. This will squeeze more of the water out. Let it stand while you're preparing the other ingredients.
  2. Add the tofu scramble seasonings to a small bowl. Then add 3 tbsp water to the seasonings bowl and stir to mix well.
  3. Heat vegetable broth in a large pan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes covered.
  4. While the garlic is sautéing, scrape the tofu with a fork to crumble it into small scrambled egg size pieces.

  5. Add the tofu to the pan with the minced garlic.
  6. Sprinkle the seasoning mixture over the tofu. Stir the tofu until it takes on a yellow hue from the turmeric. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until warmed through.

  7. Add the spinach and cover to steam. The spinach will shrink down. Stir to combine.
  8. If you cooked your potatoes the night before like we did, you can add them to the pan to heat them up. It only takes 3 or 4 minutes.

  9. To heat up the tortillas and make them more pliable, put them in the pan over the potatoes and tofu scramble, and cover for about 1 minute.
