Breakfast Burritos

Customize these burritos with salsa, soy cheese, Tofutti’s “Sour Supreme,” and shredded lettuce for a healthy, protein-packed start to your day.


6 tortillas

4 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 onion, finely diced

1 lb. firm tofu, crumbled

1 cup vegetables of your choice (try green onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, and bell peppers), finely chopped

1/8 tsp. turmeric

Salt and pepper, to taste

6 oz. faux sausage (try Gimme Lean—www.lightlife.com), crumbled

Tabasco or other hot sauce, optional


• Place the tortillas between two wet paper towels, wrap them in foil, and heat them in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes at 200°F.

• In a large skillet, heat 2 Tbsp. of the vegetable oil over medium heat.

• Add the garlic and onion and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tofu, vegetables, turmeric, and salt and pepper and continue to cook over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes.

• Meanwhile, in another skillet, heat the remaining oil, add the faux sausage, and cook until the “sausage” is browned.

• Add the “sausage” to the tofu mixture and stir to combine.

• Scoop the mixture into the tortillas, fold them up, and serve immediately.

• Serve with hot sauce.

Makes 6 servings
