A Tofu Burrito is a delicious and satisfying vegan breakfast option. It's packed with protein and flavor, making it a great way to start your day. Here's a simple recipe to make a Tofu Breakfast Burrito:


For the Tofu Scramble:

  • 4 pieces of Tung Lam Tofu Keras, drained and crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder (for color)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional, for added flavor)

For the Burrito:

  • 4 large whole wheat or spinach tortillas
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa or brown rice
  • 1 cup black beans, canned or cooked
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced avocado
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • Fresh cilantro leaves (optional)
  • Hot sauce or vegan cheese (optional, for extra flavor)


  1. Prepare the Tofu Scramble:

    • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
    • Add chopped onions and bell pepper. Sauté for about 3-4 minutes until they begin to soften.
    • Add minced garlic and cook for an additional 1 minute.
    • Add crumbled tofu to the skillet and season with turmeric, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine.
    • Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally until the tofu is heated through and has a slightly golden color.
    • If using nutritional yeast, sprinkle it over the tofu and mix it in. This will add a cheesy flavor.
  2. Assemble the Burrito:

    • Warm the tortillas in a dry skillet or microwave for about 20 seconds to make them pliable.
    • Lay out each tortilla and add a scoop of the cooked quinoa or brown rice down the center.
    • Top with a portion of the tofu scramble, black beans, diced tomatoes, diced avocado, and salsa.
    • If you like it spicy, you can add hot sauce or vegan cheese at this point.
    • Sprinkle fresh cilantro leaves on top for added freshness.
  3. Fold and Roll:

    • Fold in the sides of the tortilla over the filling, then fold up the bottom and roll it tightly to form a burrito.
  4. Serve:

    • You can serve the Tofu Breakfast Burritos immediately, or you can wrap them in foil and keep them warm in the oven until you're ready to eat.
Enjoy your homemade Tofu Breakfast Burrito made with Tung Lam Tofu Keras! It's a versatile recipe, so feel free to customize it with your favorite veggies or add-ins like spinach, mushrooms, or vegan cheese.
