The Challenge: Breakfast Burrito

What could be better than a warm pressed flour tortilla filled to the brim with vegan breakfast goodies. I have always thought breakfast was the hardest meal for vegans, and it has been a focal point of many dishes. Building off my latest recipe, Perfect 20-Minute Vegan Bacon, this dish incorporates that plus a lot more! In the end, we have an absolute masterpiece of deliciousness you'll love.

Fair warning, this recipe is a bit more involved and can take a good chef 40-50 minutes with a novice 50-60. Nothing is hard, but there are a few parts! I like to be honest in my recipes and not mislead you. BUT...BUT...BUT... I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TRYING IT OUT or even dropping an item or two to cut down on the time.

The star of this breakfast burrito, though, isn't my crispy, smoky vegan bacon. Nope! It is a tofu scramble that is to die for. Tofu scrambles - I've had plenty. Most ... little flavor. Most ... too wet. Most ... use soft tofu (mistake). This recipe uses a couple of key spices as well as firm tofu to create a delightful tofu scramble. One of those is turmeric. Turmeric will do an amazing job of giving this nice flavor of freshness to your scramble!

Additionally, we make bangin' hash browns from scratch, a great simple lime corn + avocado guacamole, and top it all with a creamy dairy-free chipotle sour cream.

Wrap it in a soft flour tortilla, press it on a hot dry pan, and bite into breakfast burrito MAGIC. Homies, get ready, to have the ULTIMATE VEGAN BREAKFAST BURRITO.

Vegan BLT Sandwich w/ Rice Paper Bacon, Heirloom Tomato, and Arugula Jesus - it looks good huh. I love BLTs. I used to eat them with old green box Morningstar Farms bacon, but after becoming a vegan, I have not had many since most bacon replacements are not vegan. So, I wanted to crush that issue. But how to make an easy vegan bacon that wouldn't require too much work. Enter rice paper. I had seen some rice paper recipes, but I had felt like they were pretty hard, easy-to-burn, or just didn't have the flavor. The key to this BLT is really the marinade. I worked a lot on the marinade and then texture. Rice paper works well because it crisps really nicely, and it is also very easy to work with. For the marinade, it was a bit of trial and error, but the key is liquid smoke, a bit of maple syrup, smoked paprika, nutritional yeast, some garlic + onion powder, and a few extras. But how do we make this into bacon? Wet the paper, squish it together, lay on parchment, and slap on some marinade. Bake it on high heat and crisp it. Then eat a ton of it. GUILT FREE BACON YAYYYYYYYY!   Aggregate rating will show here Serves 4 Ingredients: 10 sheets of rice paper, 2 tbl olive oil, 2 tbl nutritional yeast, 2 tbl liquid aminos, 1/2 tbl garlic salt, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp chipotle chili powder, 1/3 tsp liquid smoke, 1/2 tbl maple syrup, 1 tsp smoked paprika, 4 pretzel rolls, 2 medium heirloom tomatoes, sliced, 4 large handfuls of arugula, 6 tbl (or so) of vegan mayo,
