Breakfast Burritos, just in time for Father’s Day!

Mushroom and Avocado Breakfast Burrito ~vegan~ Plus, high-protein vegan breakfast ideas!

Regardless of what diet you follow (paleo, raw, vegan, low carb, high carb, fruitarian, gluten free, acid-alkaline…you get the point!) breakfast is important!  Some do well with having a high-protein breakfast while others feel best with an easily digestible juice, it’s all about bio-individuality!  We all digest and absorb foods differently, it’s important to find what works best for you!

Personally, some days fruit or a smoothie is sufficient and other days I need more!  Eating a high-protein breakfast sets you up for the day by keeping you full for longer and preventing mid-morning slumps.

Here are some ideas for high-protein vegan breakfasts!

Healthy Chia Waffles with nut butter

  2. Add an extra drizzle of olive to skillet and warm over medium heat. Add mushrooms and a pinch of sea salt, sauté until mushrooms have released their moisture and start to turn a dark golden color, around 8-10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together vegenaise, lemon juice and sriracha.
  4. Warm tortillas on the stove top or in a microwave.
  5. To assemble burritos, add a scoop of the tofu/bean scramble, scoop of sautéed mushrooms, avocado slices and sriracha aioli. Roll and eat!

This recipe makes a large portion.  I like put left-over tofu scramble on salads for a quick and easy lunch!

    I could never really get into the whole tofe scramble thing, but I love the idea of the mushrooms and avocado! Maybe one day I’ll try the tofu, though!

      Hi Raquel! I admit, it’s a bit odd…tofu scramble, but I promise you it’s delicious! Simply beans, mushrooms and avocado would make a wonderful breakfast burrito as well! P.S. I LOVE your site! The photos are beautiful and the recipes look amazing! I’m jealous of you living in SLO…it’s one of my favorite places! Thanks for stopping by and nice to “meet” you :)
