Vegan Sweet Potato Breakfast Burrito

Jump to Recipe

I’m kicking off the new year with these delicious vegan breakfast burritos! I think the name “breakfast burrito” is a little misleading because I could eat one of these for any meal of the day. These burritos are loaded with all my favorite fillings:

  • Crispy sweet potato hash (oven option too!)
  • Scrambled tofu
  • Black beans
  • Guacamole
  • Lots of cilantro and lime juice

I’ve been making tofu scrambled for quite some time now, and I think I’ve figured out a pretty fool proof combo. To get that savory, umami flavor I use nutritional yeast and soy sauce with just a little turmeric for color. I recently got an air fryer, and it’s wonderful for cooking sweet potatoes, but if you don’t have one, the oven is a great option too! For both, the potatoes and the other veggies have pretty different cook times, so they get added in later.

Also, did you know that Chipotle will sell you a tortilla for 25 cents each?! I was so happy when I discovered this because their tortillas are the BEST. First of all, they’re ginormous, perfect for these loaded breakfast burritos and second, they’re only five ingredients: flour, water, yeast, oil, water and salt. It’s so hard to find tortillas without any additives and preservatives, but turns out Chipotle’s got us covered.
