Vegan Breakfast Burritos

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato
  • Olive oil about 2 tablespoons
  • ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Paprika
  • Large tortillas I like gluten-free
  • 1 8- oz pack of firm tofu
  • 1 teaspoon Nutritional yeast
  • ½ teaspoon Turmeric
  • 3 - 4 cups uncooked spinach
  • ½ white onion
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 Avocado
  • Vegan cheese optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Cube your sweet potato into ½ inch cubes. Toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil, a pinch of salt, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, and ½ teaspoon paprika. Bake for about 20 minutes. Check midway through the cooking time and toss so they cook evenly.

  2. Chop half a white onion and saute in a little bit of olive oil. I never measure but instead use just enough to keep them from sticking. After your onions are translucent, add in spinach and heat just until the spinach is wilted. Remove from heat and set aside.

  3. Start to make the “eggs.” Drain and pat the tofu with paper towels, making sure it’s really dry. Using your favorite cooking oil, lightly oil a medium sized pan. Crumble the tofu into the pan. Sprinkle in nutritional yeast (this is where the flavor comes in) and turmeric (this is what gives it the color). Add salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Once your potatoes, spinach, and eggs are ready, you can assemble your burritos. Put the desired amount of each ingredient into your tortilla and roll it up! You can also add in some avocado, salsa, or cheese of your liking. If you are adding cheese (especially vegan cheese), I suggest rolling the burrito, patting it with just a little water, and putting it in the oven to melt the cheese. The water will keep your tortilla soft. Note, when I have made these in the past I had no problem rolling them, however when I made them recently I put the tortillas in the fridge before making them and that made them impossible to roll! They became more like scramble bowls so make sure you don't put your tortillas in the fridge!
