Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast Burritos

Cooking ignites a fire deep inside of me, the kind that burns for hours on end. Often, this leads to me making the biggest mess in the kitchen and spending endless hours making and creating recipes. A recent kitchen episode like this has gifted me with this new recipe just for you - the breakfast burritos. 

Breakfast burrito ingredients

Yes, you did read that right! Burritos at breakfast time. This is every man, woman, and child's dream is it not? Okay okay, maybe it is just my secret desire to stuff my morning face with tasty burritos. But you are more than welcome to join in on my fantasy! The more the merrier. And I won't tell anyone if you don't. But once you get a taste for the good stuff, you are going to want to tell everyone! Trust me.

Breakfast burrito filling

This burrito is stuffed with all the right things to entice you, transfix you, and hopefully convert you to a regular burrito lover! The good news is, it's also very easy to make. To make this recipe, you will need 35 minutes, and 16 easily accessible ingredients. I would highly recommend that you try this recipe on a weekend or a day you have free - especially if you have never made these before. They can take a little longer than other breakfast recipes and I don't want to be the reason you are late for work (although burritos is a pretty good reason for being late).

Pouring vegan burrito filling onto a dish

In this recipe we have carrot, tofu, green pepperoni, onion, cabbage, and zucchini. Among the many incredible vitamins and minerals these ingredients offer, you will get a high source of fibre, antioxidants, protein, all eight essential amino acids (from the tofu), magnesium, and vitamin C. 

Avocado is also a huge part of this recipe - it makes up that infamous guacamole. But other than tasting simply amazing, it hosts a huge range of nutritional benefits such as potassium, 'healthy fats', lots of fibre, and antioxidants.

Vegan burritos

I would not recommend storing complete burritos for more than 24 hours. The guacamole can make it turn a bit soggy and nobody wants soggy burritos. But you can certainly store any prepared parts to your burritos. In fact, if you are going to be short on time but really want a burrito, you can pre-make most of your ingredients the night before hand. Chop up all of your ingredients to save you time in the morning. Simply store anything you pre-make in airtight containers in the fridge. It's what I do!

And that's about it! I really hope you enjoy these breakfast burritos as much as I do! And please be sure to share your creations with us. Now go get cooking my friends!
