Vegetarian Breakfast Burrito with Avocado and Soy Cheese


This vegetarian breakfast burrito is made from lightly pan-fried tofu, tomatoes and topped off with soy cheese and avocado. I love making this for a leisurely weekend breakfast or brunch. It's a breakfast burrito that's not only low in fat and vegan, but it's also simple, quick and easy enough to make for just one.


  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 block firm or extra-firm tofu, chopped into cubes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • grated soy cheese, about 1/2 cup
  • 1 avocado, sliced thin
  • ketchup or hot sauce, to taste
  • flour tortillas


Sautee the onion, garlic and tofu in olive oil for a few minutes, then add turmeric, soy sauce and tomatoes and cook for a few more minutes, until tofu is lightly golden brown and done cooking. Season generously with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.

Assemble burritos by spooning about 1/4 cup tofu mixture on the flour tortilla. Sprinkle each burrito with a bit of soy cheese, then add avocado slices and ketchup or hot sauce to taste. 

Wrap tortillas to form burritos.
