Packed with protein, these tofu breakfast burritos are completely plant based. Crispy smoked tofu slices and scrambled tofu are complimented with fresh pico de gallo, black beans, sliced avocado and coriander. A nutritional powerhouse and the perfect start to the day! 


  • 5 tortilla wraps
  • 1 batch tofu scramble
  • ½ batch pico de gallo
  • 200 g firm smoked tofu
  • 1 400g can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 avocado flesh scooped out and sliced
  • 15 g coriander chopped
  • 1 lime


  • Make a batch of tofu scramble.
  • Make half a batch of pico de gallo.
  • Thinly slice the block of smoked tofu, then fry the slices in a tiny bit of oil until golden and crispy. They will need about 3 minutes on each side.
  • Lay out all of your ingredients along with the tortilla wraps. To each tortilla, add the tofu scramble, pico de gallo, smoked tofu slices, black beans, avocado, coriander, and a squeeze of lime juice, creating a small strip down the centre.
  • To roll, fold each of the ends in. Fold one side over the filling, tucking it in as tightly as you can. Then continue to roll the tortilla over until it is tightly wrapped.
  • (Optional) If you'd like them crispy- heat a little oil in a skillet over a medium heat, then lightly fry them on two or four sides. Make sure you start with the fold side down first, to seal it with the heat.
  • (Optional) To bake- preheat your oven to 180°, then arrange the burritos fold side down in a baking dish. Brush them with a little bit of oil, then bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and crispy.


*Prep time includes time to make tofu scramble and pico de gallo. If you already have these, or are using alternatives, this prep time may be different.
Once they are completely cooled, wrap them individually in tin foil to hold them together. Then store in either the fridge or the freezer until ready to eat.
To reheat from refrigerated, just place in the oven at 180 for 7-10 minutes. This can be done in the foil. To microwave, remove from the foil, and heat for 2-3 minutes.
From frozen, you can reheat in exactly the same way, they will just need a little bit longer. Give them 15-20 minutes in the oven, and 3-5 minutes in the microwave. Just make sure they are piping hot through.
