Usually, my breakfasts consist of green smoothies, chia pudding or steel cut oats, but every once in a while I like to hop on the savoury breakfast bandwagon and I wake up craving something hearty & salty. 

I think once fall rolls around I suddenly find myself craving more of a filling and substantial breakfast. (Though I do still love my smoothies all year round:)) 

These vegan breakfast burritos are just that. A hearty and substantial breakfast packed with the perfect balance of carbs, protein and healthy fats. 

I’ve tried making a few variations if this recipe before coming up with the best combo. I’ve tried making these with regular potatoes, bean, and lettuce instead of spinach…all of which were good, but the combo in THIS recipe came out the best. 

This vegan breakfast burrito starts off with scrambled tofu. This is our “egg” replacement for this recipe. I’ve actually even tricked some people into thinking there were real eggs in here;)

Next, we have some oven roasted sweet potatoes, which pack a ton of flavour and hold up well to the scrambled tofu. I’ve tried using regular potato here instead but settled on sweet potato in the end since regular potatoes don’t really add much flavour. And of course what is a burrito without avocado! It adds a nice creamy texture and serving of healthy fats.

A few notes on this recipe: 

If you’re looking for a quick breakfast to put together in the morning, prepare the tofu and sweet potatoes for this recipe the night before. Store them in a container in the fridge and have them ready to go to make the burrito the next morning. You can also prepare these burritos entirely the night before and just toast or grill them in the morning.

I haven’t tried freezing these burritos yet, but I’m confident they will hold up well in the freezer. 

I use a large whole-grain tortilla wrap for this recipe, but any type of tortilla you like to use will do just fine! I also like to grill my vegan breakfast burrito in a pan or panini press before eating them. Nothing beats a toasty crispy burrito!

If you’re taking your burritos to go make sure to wrap them up tightly so they don’t come apart! Serve these up with your favourite salsa or guacamole on the side.
