This burrito recipe takes scrambled tofu south of the border for a mildy spicy concoction that will get your day started with protein, vegetables, whole grain and loads of flavor. If you’re in a hurry, wrap your burrito in foil and take it with you!
Tofu is a wonderful, low-fat stand-in for scrambled eggs in this tasty variation on a breakfast classic. Topped with a generous serving of a quick pico de gallo and sliced avocado, you’ll find this burrito to be filling and full of flavor.
