If you’re anything like me, you believe that burritos can (and should) be eaten for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Throw anything in a wrap, and I’m there. So burrito lovers, you’re in luck. There will be a ton of burritos on this blog – starting with my favorite! This cajun breakfast burrito is the bomb, and will have you saying phrases such as “the bomb,” apparently.
This recipe will serve 3-4 people.
You will need:
- 1/4 block tofu
- 1/3 can black beans
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1/2 red pepper chopped
- Paprika, to taste
- Chili powder, to taste
- Cajun seasoning, to taste
- Salt & pepper, to taste
- 1/2 avocado, sliced
- Corn salsa (or salsa of your choice)
- 1 vegan wrap of your choice (I opted for Trader Joe’s Habanero Lime Tortilla – gives an extra blast of flavor!)
- Hot sauce of your choice, optional
Prep the Wrap
I always start with this step, because it’s easy to get out of the way! Simply add a spoonful of corn salsa to your tortilla, followed by avocado slices, and hot sauce if you are into heat. Easy, right? Pretty much all ready for what’s to come.
Create your Filling
Start by dicing up veggies, crumbling your tofu, and measuring our your black beans.
Toss this onto an oil-sprayed skillet or pan, whichever your preference. Add your seasonings. I never measure out exactly what I add… I pretty much eye it. If you are not great at this, start with a dash and taste-test along the way. I promise, you will find your groove!
Cook your veggies over med heat, until onion becomes translucent and the rest have a bit of char to them.
Add Veggies to Wrap
Once your veggies are cooked, add them to your burrito. One step closer to consuming heaven!
Seriously, how good does that look? Om nom.
Roll It Up
Rolling up a burrito is an art, I swear. It took me years working in a small cafe to master this without tearing and making a freakin’ mess. If your not a wrapping ninja yet, take a look at this instructional video. PRACTICE!
Once rolled, I place the burrito back on my sprayed skillet, and press it with a cast iron grill press. If you do not have one, no worries, most people don’t. I wouldn’t if it wasn’t for Joe! Simply put a little pressure on the burrito, flip, and do the same to the other side. This helps to seal the burrito – just be careful not to burn it!
Cut it, or eat it whole. Flavor like whoa.
Bomb, right? xx Bianca
