Healthy Vegan Breakfast Burrito

Healthy Vegan Breakfast Burritos 

Today's recipe is from Running On Real Food.

Mexican food for breakfast is probably one of our favourite things in the world. Huevos rancheros? Best. Ever. However, if you choose not to eat eggs or dairy, what are you do to? Well, get as close as you can with a vegan-style delicious tofu scramble and mexi-flavours like avocado, cilantro, salsa, spices, beans and lime.

These healthy vegan breakfast burritos taste amazing and are easy to make. You can prep the tofu scramble ahead of time then just throw them together in the morning. They can even be prepared and frozen individually for a healthy take on frozen burritos!
