Tofu Scramble Burritos with Beans and Soy Chorizo



  • 1 cup  uncooked brown rice
  • 1/3 cup  red salsa
  • 1 tsp.  taco seasoning
  • 1 cup  frozen potatoes or hash browns
  • 1 cup  canned black beans, drained
  • 8-oz. pkg.  soy chorizo
  • 1 block  firm tofu, drained and crumbled into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 Tbsp.  vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp.  nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup  vegan cheese shreds (optional)
  • 4 large wheat tortillas
  • 1/4 cup  Vegenaise


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add the brown rice, reduce the heat, and let simmer, covered, for 45 minutes. Then let the rice sit, covered, for another 15 minutes. (Or cook the brown rice in a rice cooker with 2 cups of water.)
  • Stir the salsa and ½ teaspoonful taco seasoning into the cooked rice.
  • Bake the frozen potatoes in the oven until cooked through (about 15 minutes).
  • Place the beans in a small pot and cook on the stovetop over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  • Heat the soy chorizo in a small frying pan for 5 minutes. Add water as needed to prevent sticking.
  • Oil another frying pan and cook the tofu over medium heat. Add the nutritional yeast, turmeric, remaining ½ teaspoonful taco seasoning, and salt and pepper. Simmer until the tofu is warm and excess liquid has evaporated. Optional: Add the vegan cheese shreds and simmer until melted.
  • Warm the tortillas in the oven or microwave, if desired. Layer ½ cup cooked rice, ¼ cup black beans, ¼ cup soy chorizo, ¼ cup potatoes, and ½ cup tofu scramble on each tortilla, roll into a burrito, and drizzle with 1 tablespoonful Vegenaise. Serve and enjoy!
