These vegan breakfast burritos are packed with 20 grams of plant-based protein and they're soon to become your favourite meal-preppable breakfast!
This recipe is completely customisable. I love adding scrambled tofu, spinach tomatoes, and black beans, but you could also add vegan cheese, mashed avocado, hummus, or any vegetable of your choosing!
And if you love burritos as much as me, you'll love these vegan burrito bowls too!
How to make perfect breakfast burritos every time:
- Use only the outer parts of the tomato. To prevent your tortilla becoming soggy, remove the seeds + membrane from the tomato before adding it to your burritos.
- Heat the tortillas first. Warming the tortillas makes them more pliable, which makes the wrapping process a lot easier. I like to warm my tortillas over the flame of my gas stove - just as they begin to char, you'll know they're ready. If you do not have a gas stove, you can also warm the tortillas in a frying pan or the microwave.
- Mash the beans slightly. This prevents the bean filling from spilling out.
Place your filling in a pile a little off-centre on your tortilla, ensuring you leave ample room around the filling on all sides. With the pile filling closest to you, fold over the tortilla in the centre then on the sides. Finally, roll the tortilla away from you wrapping the filling tightly.
You can store prepared and foil-wrapped breakfast burritos in the fridge for 2-3 days.
Lot's of fast food chains serve breakfast burritos which are loaded with oil and salt. These vegan breakfast burritos are a lot healthier, as they are made at home and packed with plant-based protein!
