Salsa-Tofu Breakfast Burrito

From: EatingWell Magazine March/April 2013

Even though this healthy breakfast burrito comes together in just 5 minutes, you can make this burrito even faster by skipping the skillet and combining the tofu, salsa, salt and pepper in a bowl and microwaving until hot, about 1 minute. Use soy cheese to make it a vegan burrito.

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Stir in salsa, salt and pepper; continue cooking until heated through, about 30 seconds. Spread cheese down the center of tortilla. Top with the tofu mixture. Fold in the ends of the tortilla and roll into a burrito.
  • Eat neat: Keeping the filling inside a wrap or burrito can be a challenge, especially if you're on the go. That's why we recommend wrapping your burrito in foil so you can pick it up and eat it without losing the filling, peeling back the foil as you go.

Bland I tried this out today. What I did was add the olive oil then the tofu. It took a while for it to get brown. Then I decided to add a few veggies, and finally the salsa, pepper, and salt. Overall, the tofu had a bit of flavor due to the salsa. If you are use to lots of flavor then this is not for you or you need to add a bit more salsa, salt, and pepper to your liking. Taste as you go! Pros: Good for you, low cal, good protein, Cons: Bland, needs more seasoning

My first time to eat Tofu On the Lose It website, so many talk about eating Tofu. I bought some yesterday and came to Eating Well to see how to use it. Tofu sounded horrible to me, but it was so delicious. The texture was good and the salsa gave it just enough seasoning. Pros: So good!
