1/2 tsp. sea salt or more to taste

1/2 tsp. cracked pepper

1 T tahini

juice of 2 limes freshly squeezed


1 T grape seed oil

1 onion diced

4 cloves garlic chopped

14 to 16 oz. block firm or extra firm tofu

1 tsp. turmeric powder

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

2 tsp. Braggs Liquid Aminos or soy sauce

sea salt and cracked pepper to taste


Six 10 1/2 inch Tortillas

baby bella mushrooms sliced - optional

kale or collard greens chiffonade cut - optional

cooked rice - optional

red bell pepper diced - optional

Daiya or Follow Your Heart grated vegan cheddar or pepper jack cheese

parchment paper, zip lock bags for wrapping and freezing


Prepare hummus by placing all of the hummus ingredients in a food processor and blending until smooth.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the oil

Sauté the onions and garlic - and mushrooms and bell pepper if using - in the oil until tender

Rinse tofu under running water and drain

Crumble the tofu into the pan with the vegetables

Add the turmeric powder, nutritional yeast and soy sauce to the killet and cook for about 3 minutes

Add chiffonade cut kale, spinach or collard greens to sauté, if using

Assemble the Burritos

Set up your work station with hummus, rubber spatula, tofu scramble, cheese, wrapping papers and zip lock bags

Smear hummus over tortilla, add scramble and small amount of cheese. Roll up the tortilla like a burrito and wrap in parchment paper. Repeat with all the burritos and place them in freezer safe zip lock bags.

Freeze burritos for future breakfast meals

Defrost burritos before heating in the oven. It is not necessary to remove the parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350º. Oven bake 30 minutes.

You can also microwave the frozen burritos in the wrapping paper from 4 to 5 minutes.

Note from VEW: We have also made these with great results using canned refried beans in place of the hummus
