This spicy breakfast burrito is the right way to kick off your morning. It’s stuffed with scrambled tofu, made spicy from fresh jalapeño peppers, fresh greens, avocado, and a zingy hot sauce, makes this a satisfying and manageable breakfast or brunch. You could even add black beans, or a drizzle of Sriracha, if jalapeño isn’t spicy enough for you.

Spicy Tofu Scramble and Avocado Breakfast Burrito [Vegan]

This Recipe is :



  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeño, diced (seeds removed, if you like)
  • 3/4 cup green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 14-ounce package extra firm tofu, pressed, crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 4 tortillas (the bigger the better)
  • 2 fresh limes, quartered for garnish (optional)
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish (optional)


  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Add onion, garlic, and jalapeño, and cook about a minute.
  2. Stir in green pepper and turmeric and cook another 2 minutes. Stir in the crumbled tofu and cook another 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
  3. On each tortilla, layer baby spinach in a row slightly off center. Top with some of the tofu mixture. Layer 1/4 of the avocado slices and some of the hot sauce to taste. Garnish with fresh cilantro and lime juice, if you like. Roll up the burrito and serve.
