breakfast burrito #1

i'm not a huge fan of typical breakfast foods, so it was never really hard to give up the eggs, bacon, pancakes, etc. every once in while though - especially after a late night :) - i really crave something hearty in the morning. breakfast burritos have become one of my favourites. this is one of many recipes to come.

  • 1/2 pkg. of firm or extra firm tofu (about 6 oz.)
  • 3/4 cup mixed bell pepper strips
  • 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 10 black olives
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2 8-inch wheat tortillas
  • jalapenos (optional)

cut tofu into cubes and place in non-stick skillet on med-high to high. season one side with garlic powder, onion powder, nutritional yeast and salt & pepper. tofu can be pretty crumbly, so i like to cook it on one side without stirring until it browns. then flip, season and brown the other side. after about 7-10 minutes of browning the tofu, add the peppers and continue cooking the mixture until peppers are tender. warm up the wheat tortillas and divide the tofu mixture and rest of ingredients between the two.

roll up and chow down. :)
