Breakfast Burritos

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.

        @NikkiA eating meat is a personal choice – regardless of anyone’s views it’s ultimately a personal decision. It’s great that you’re willing to try new things! I know I feel so much better since I stopped eating meat. Kudos to you for taking that first step!

        @nikki Traditionally flour tortillas are made using lard (animal fat) but many companies make theirs with vegetable shortening instead. Mission brand is vegetarian/vegan for instance – just read the label before purchasing to be sure.

        @NikkiA, no it’s not spicy! I’m also a big baby when it comes to food with some heat but this recipe is just pure bliss! Granted, I don’t use the hot sauce at the end. I feel it’s just fine without it and I eat the burrito while I’m doing rounds at work. It’s SOO yummy!

        Most bread and Tortillas have Mono and Diglycerides which is an animal by product unless it says vegetable right? I only eat rudy’s bakery bread and very few flour tortillas for this reason, but most Corn tortillas are fine. Please let me know if this is incorrect. Thanks

        I’m not vegan but I’m trying out a vegan diet for my own health, I do eat meat and I’m sorry if that’s wrong to you guys but I still need help.

        I just wanted to know, is this particularly spicy? See I’m a whimp when it comes to spice and it seems so delicious but I don’t want to you know, cry in pain as I eat it, or sweat out my entire body!

        @nikki, most tortillas in the US are not made with lard. None of the tortillas at the 3 chain grocers closer to my house are, nor are the ones made at the very authentic tortilla factory in the next town over, nor in my hometown (not a vegan or health food place by any stretch). You do need to read labels, but most tortillas from the grocery store will be fine.

        This looks great. I thought the only thing that would make it better would be some queso — and lo and behold, vegan queso! http://fatgoblin.com/ I’ll be trying this on the breakfast burrito ASAP.

        Nikki – there are plenty of vegan tortillas, just read the ingredients list before purchasing.
