Vegan Breakfast Burrito - Texas Style with Bacon, Egg, Potato, and Cheese!
This vegan breakfast burrito reminds me of growing up in Texas and getting take-out from the local Mexican restaurant. Tofu scramble (eggs), fried smoked tempeh (bacon), crispy diced potatoes, and vegan cheese wrapped up in a fresh flour tortilla. What more could you possibly want for a hearty weekend breakfast?
5-6Cherry Tomatoes, halved and quarteredor 1/2 small tomato
PinchSalt & Pepper to taste
1 1/4Cups (300 ml)Water
1CupGrated or Sliced Vegan Cheese
1SmallPotato, peeled, small diced, and parboiled
1blockSmoked Tempeh, thinly sliced
Hot Sauce or Salsa
Fresh Sliced Avocado
Add 1-2 Tablespoons of olive oil to a hot pan.
Add the onion, garlic, and a pinch of salt to the pan. Stir, cover, and cook over medium low heat until the onions start to become translucent. If the garlic starts to brown, lower the heat.
Add the bell peppers, stir, and cover. Cook until the bell peppers are soft.
Add the turmeric powder, stir, and let cook for about 30 seconds to release the flavor and toast slightly.
Add 1/3 of the water, and mix scraping all of the brown bits off the bottom of the pan.
Add crumbled tofu along with the rest of the dry ingredients (nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, and black salt). Mix and add the remaining water.
Add the tomatoes and half of the green onions. Mix and let cook on medium low heat for about 10 minutes, or until most of the liquid has evaporated. This should take about 10 minutes.Be sure to stir the mixture while it is cooking every few minutes to prevent burning.
Remove from the heat and reserve for later.
Bacon & Crispy Potatoes
To make the tempeh bacon, add about a tablespoon of olive oil to a hot pan. Fry the tempeh slices on each side for 1-2 minutes until browned. Remove from the pan and reserve for later.
For the Crispy Potatoes add half a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan you cooked the tempeh in.
Add most of the remaining green onions, reserving some for the burrito filling. Add the parboiled potatoes to the pan and season with salt.
Cook on medium high heat until the potatoes are crispy and brown. Stir frequently to prevent burning and to evenly brown the potatoes.
Fill the Burritos
Place one large flour tortilla on a cutting board, or plate. Add a small handful of vegan cheese, 4 slices of bacon, 3-4 tablespoons of the tofu scramble mixture, and a tablespoon of the potatoes in the center of the tortilla. You can also add some fresh green onions if you wish.Be sure not to over stuff the tortilla as it will burst later if it's too full.
Fold two sides of the tortilla over the mixture, then fold the top side down and roll the burrito closed.
The burrito can be enjoyed as is, or grilled on each side on a grill pan or skillet. This ensures the cheese is melted and gives the shell a crunchy texture.
Enjoy these burritos with optional avocado on the side, and fresh salsa or your favorite hot sauce.
