Vegan Breakfast Burrito

Not to be dramatic, but this is the best breakfast burrito I have ever had in my entire life and I had to post it immediately. It’s also got >40 grams of protein!

791 calories* | 41g protein | 92g carbs | 15g fiber | 29g fat (only 2g saturated fat)

*I follow the principle of breakfast like a queen, lunch like a princess, dinner like a pauper. Energy is needed throughout the day and best front-loaded rather than sitting around on your gut at the end of the day if all eaten with dinner.

Ingredients

  • Just Egg Liquid
  • Black Beans
  • Baby Bella Mushrooms
  • Sweet Peppers
  • Jalapeños
  • Red Onion
  • Fire Roasted Tomatoes with Green Chilis
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • Garlic Powder
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Oregano
  • Roasted Cumin Powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Black Pepper
  • Salt
  • Tortilla
  • Avocado Oil
  • Salsa
  • Optional: additional hot sauce

Steps

  1. Heat 1/2 Tbsp avocado oil in a pan on medium-low heat
  2. Add 3 Tbsp chopped red onion, 2 chopped sweet peppers, 1/4 chopped jalapeno (adjust to taste, mine was spicy), and 4 sliced baby bella mushrooms (~1/3 c)
  3. Arrange mushrooms in single layer so they cook through. Flip after two minutes.
  4. Season with pinch roasted cumin powder, salt, pepper, and cinnamon
  5. Add 1/2 can black beans. Stir.
  6. Add 2 Tbsp fire roasted tomatoes with green chilis
  7. Season with 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 Tbsp taco seasoning, 1 tsp oregano, and 1/4 tsp black pepper +/- salt if more is needed
  8. Add about 2-3 Tbsp water to help thicken the seasoning and make the mixture smoother. Mix through and create a well in the middle of the mixture.
  9. Pour ~1/4 c Just Egg into the well. Just as it starts to set, mix it into the rest of the ingredients. Mix frequently to avoid overcooking the Just Egg — Note: it will not be the typical yellow egg-y appearance due to all the spices so it looks more like ground ‘meat’. Once there is no liquid, it is cooked through (~3 mins)
  10. Spoon mix down the center of a large tortilla
  11. Spoon some salsa on top and then roll tightly
  12. I poured Taco Bell Fire Sauce onto each bite, but it absolutely was not needed (I just have a hot sauce habit)

  1. Hi. New here. I’ve never heard of Just Egg Liquid, so I looked it up. How exciting! I haven’t been able to eat real (chicken) eggs for several years. So happy I saw your post. Your burrito looks amazing.
