I like breakfast. I also like burritos. Whoever thought of the breakfast burrito is on my “AWESOME” list. The word “burrito” means, “little donkey”. I like to make my burritos about the size of a small donkey. Do you see where I’m going with this?
We had some more chili tortillas and decided, “what the heck.” We made a tofu scramble. I prefer silken tofu but otherwise this recipe is pretty standard.
1 box of soft silken tofu
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 pinch of sun dried tomato flakes
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 pinch paprika
1 pinch turmeric
salt and pepper to taste
Stir that up in your non-stick skillet until it’s hot and awesome. More importantly…
We cooked up some black beans. What breakfast burrito would be right without beans? We used the following:
1 onion, diced
6-8 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup of dry black beans, soaked overnight in an excess of water OR 1 can of beans, drained
salt and chili to taste
We heated the onions until they started to turn translucent. Then we added the beans and a jalapeño and just waited until they were hot and tender.
The beans and scramble made their way into the tortilla along with some salsa and cilantro. This was one of the better breakfasts we’ve had in a while. It was savory, spicy and loaded with delicious garlic and cilantro. We forgot the Daiya but neither of us missed it.
This breakfast is loaded with balanced protein to keep you going and a good serving of carbs to get your started. There’s virtually no fat and no cholesterol which is great because the fiber will help you digest all the other deliciousness for a strong body. Happy breakfast!
