A Classic Favorite

I went to bed last night wondering what I would make for breakfast this morning. I know, I know! I really need to expand my thought patterns. I had some leftover home fries and sausage. Throw some scrambled tofu and a flour tortilla into the mix and you have one of my all-time favorite breakfast foods: the breakfast burrito. Voila! Breakfast is solved.

The breakfast burrito is so user friendly. You can add or subtract ingredients as you like.

Flour or corn tortillas
Scrambled tofu
Crumbled cooked tator tots or hashbrowns
Vegetarian sausage links or patties, cooked and crumbled
Soy sour cream
Soy cheese
Salsa or Taco sauce
Olives, optional

Layer ingredients in tortilla. Roll and enjoy!

I made a Mexicali Tofu Scramble for my breakfast burrito this morning.

1/4 of an onion, chopped fine
1/2 yellow bell pepper, chopped fine
1/2 orange bell pepper, chopped fine
1 block water-pack tofu, crumbled
Turmeric, Cumin, Granulated Onion, Granulated Garlic, Soy sauce, Oregano, Salt

Saute onion and bell pepper in a little cooking spray over medium heat. Add crumbled tofu to pan. Add seasonings to taste and color consistency. I only used a sprinkling of turmeric, oregano and garlic. I like the taste of cumin so added more. The soy sauce is nice because it adds a touch of saltiness with a rich flavor.

You'll have to experiment for yourself, but that's most of the fun, isn't it?? :)

  1. Yum, it reminds me of when Taco Bell used to serve breakfast. (We would stop on the way to BCA to eat some) Good times. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
