Tofu burritos

Tofu scramble
1 block TJs extra firm tofu
2 T canola oil
1/2 red beet, shredded
1 cup garbanzo beans

2 T tahini
1 T tamari (or soy sauce)
3 t sweet chili sauce
1 T canola oil
1 t dijon mustard
2 t crushed garlic

Heat the canola oil in a large skillet.  Crumble the tofu into small pieces that resemble scrambled egg, add to the pan.  Stir the tofu scramble frequently, until the chunks are looking golden on all sides, then add the shredded beet, garbanzo beans and the marinade.  Saute for another 10 minutes or so on medium heat.  Remove and set aside.

Tofu scramble 
Roasted veggies:
2 cups broccoli florets
1/2 sweet onion, diced

1/2 large, or 1 small red pepper, diced

about 2 cups greens, sliced thin (I’ve used collards, kale, mustard greens, beet greens, and spinach)

1 T olive oil

1/2 t sea salt
1/2 t black pepper
2 t coriander
1 t cumin
1/2 t paprika
1/2 t dill
1 t thyme

1 t oregano

1/4 t cayenne pepper

Mix all in a large bowl.  Place on a baking sheet and roast, in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes, turning once during roasting. Remove and add to the tofu scramble, mix well.

Roasted veggies (broccoli, peppers, collards)

4 burrito sized tortillas (I use Ezekial sprouted grain tortillas, but you can use any type if you’re not wheat/gluten sensitive)
Optional ingredients:

2 cups shredded cheese (monterey jack, cheddar, colby jack, mozzerella, or a combo of any of these)
Shredded romaine lettuce
Diced tomatoes (or salsa)
Diced cucumbers

If you’re using Ezekial tortillas, these really need to be heated somehow, either wrapped in tin foil in the oven for about 10 minutes at 350 or lower; or (how I do it), browning them on both sides in a skillet with a bit of olive oil.  If you’re using cheese – place the shredded cheese on 1/2 the tortilla, fold, and brown in your skillet – flipping after just a  couple minutes to get each side nice and golden and the cheese melted. 

Top with the above optional ingredients or any others of your choosing (avocado, sour cream, guacamole).  Enjoy!
