Tofu and black bean breakfast burrito recipe

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 ounces firm tofu, pressed with a few paper towels to remove excess liquid
  • 1/3 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 (6 inch) whole wheat tortillas
  • 3 ounces shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • Salsa and sour cream as garnish

Directions:

  1. Add the olive oil to a large saute pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the onion and cook for about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the red bell pepper to the onions, along with the salt and pepper, and mix well.
  3. Add the tofu and break it into small pieces using the back of a wooden spoon. Cook for about a minute or until heated through.
  4. Add the black beans to the mixture, stir to combine and, when the beans are warm, remove the mixture from the heat.
  5. Spoon half the mixture into the center of a tortilla. Sprinkle with half the cheese and add several slices of avocado.
  6. Wrap the tortilla tightly, slice in half and serve.
  7. Repeat with the remaining tortilla and filling.

Roll with it for breakfast!
