Vegan Breakfast Burrito

Posted by Tatiana Crichton on


This is such a filling breakfast that can be easily prepped the night before to make things quick and smooth in the morning. Breakfast burritos can have literally anything you want in them so they are great for adding whatever is in your fridge/pantry. This vegan alternative to a scrambled egg wrap is great as it still packs in the protein and has a very similar texture while still providing you a balanced breakfast that's not only warm but extremely tasty! 


Tofu Scramble:

100g firm tofu 

1 tablespoon oil

1/2 cup non-dairy milk 

2 teaspoons turmeric 

2 teaspoons smoked paprika 

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder 

salt and pepper to taste 


Roast Potatoes: 

1 medium potato, cut into small chunks 

1 tablespoon oil

salt and pepper to taste 



1/4 of a red onion, finely diced 

1/2 tomato, diced 

1/4 cup of coriander 

lime juice from half a lime 


Other Ingredients: 

tortilla wraps 

1 cup spinach, wilted 

1/4 an avocado, diced

2 tablespoons Pure Delight Hemp Seeds

1-2 teaspoons of your favourite relish, chutney or sauce



First thing you will want to do is cook your potatoes. I find it's quicker to chop them in small pieces and roast them for 15-20 minutes at 220°C until golden and crispy.
While your potatoes are cooking, make your salsa by chop up your veggies and herbs and mix them together in a bowl and coat with the lime juice. 
Then wilt your spinach in a medium fry pan by covering for 2-5 minutes. Then remove into a bowl and start cooking your tofu scramble by heating up the oil in the pan. Crumble the tofu into small chunks and fry off for a couple of minutes before adding your spices. Cook the spices off for another minute before adding the milk. Then cook until the milk has reduced and the tofu resembles a similar look and texture to scrambled egg and remove from the heat. 
To assemble the breakfast burrito, lay out your tortilla and spread your chutney/relish/sauce on the base. Then layer your spinach, tofu, potato, salsa, avocado and sprinkle on your hemp seeds before rolling it up. I like to toast my burrito by frying it in a clean/oil free pan until both sides brown then it's ready to eat!
