Best Free Vegetarian Breakfast Burrito Recipe

Updated on October 27, 2013

Two Free Recipes to Make Your Morning Sunny

Lucky YOU - YES - this is actually two free recipes in one! The burritos become a regular morning meal because they cover all of the nutrition bases. It's also a great camping and cottage meal because it's quick, savoury, and filling. Pair this with a cup of milky tea (of course! what else would I drink?) or better yet, Mexican Hot Chocolate(!), and a glass of orange juice and you will feel satisfied for the morning.


Light and Savoury

Bobby Flay says,

"Never say delicious - it means nothing!"

I want to say this recipe is a delicious answer

to that age old question

"What's for Breakfast?"

Instead, I'll say it's a SAVOURY, protein-packed,

vegetarian answer.

Shopping List

Before making this recipe, you'll need to ensure that you have stocked your pantry with the following.

Corn Tortillas

Eggs or Egg Whites

Red Pepper

Vegetarian Refried Beans

Jalapeno Jack or Cheddar Cheese

Soy Vegetable Protein


Olive oil

Chili powder







A Secret Ingredient

In many of my Mexican recipies, I add a piece of Mexican chocolate. And, if you're considering a side drink with breakfast, boil milk (cow's, soy, cocoanut, rice, almond) and drop in a piece of chocolate for each cup. This is a fantastic sweet foil to this savoury dish. And for extra special zing to your morning, consider adding a little hot chili - a very little - and stir well. ¡Buen provecho

Note: some of the chocolate items available are powdered. It is possible to substitute powdered chocolate mix for chocolate pieces. Add to taste, which will require a little experimentation. Remember, it's possible to always add more, and it's impossible to remove chocolate if you add too much to start with. ;)

Mexican Veggie Sausage
Mexican Veggie Sausage

Making your own veggie sausage is easy! The best part is that you can double, triple, or quadruple the recipe so that you can use it for breakfasts during the week, or it can be frozen for use at another time. So, let's get to it.

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: 4


  • 1/4 cup Soy Vegetable Protein
  • 2 Tablespoons Oatmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chilli Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Paprika
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced Onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely minced Garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 whisked egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil


  1. 1. In a glass bowl, mix the first 9 ingredients.
  2. 2. Add 3/4 cups of boiling water, stir, cover, and let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. 3. Remove cover, stir, and let sit for 5 more minutes.
  4. 4. Stir in 2 tablespoons of whisked Egg.
  5. 5. Heat oil on medium in cast iron pan
  6. 6. Add mixture to pan and cook as "crumbled" veggie sausage until browned on 2 sides. Approximately 5 minutes.
  7. Now you can use this in the Veggie Breakfast Burrito recipe. If you have increased the recipe, once cooled, you can package the extra for freezing for future use or keep it packaged in the fridge for use within the week.
Cast your vote for Step 1

Kwik Kettles

Boiling water in a cordless kettle is a convenience I could never have imagined. But honestly? Boiling water in any kind of kettle is better than using a pot. It boils faster, using less energy, and stays hot for longer. Try one of these babies.

My family members turn up their noses at 'tofu', but these burritos keep them coming back for more.

Mexican Cook Ware

Ever thought about making your own tortillas? It's fun, especially with kids. Take a look at these kitchen gadgets that might help with your breakfast cooking needs.

3 Shiny Eggs

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 4

Step 2 - Make Your Burrito

  • 4 Corn Tortillas
  • 3 Eggs or 4 Egg Whites
  • 1 Diced Red Pepper
  • Veggie Sausage (see above for recipe)
  • 1/4 cup Refried Beans
  • Grated Jalapeno Jack or Cheddar Cheese


  1. 1. Scramble eggs or egg whites, season lightly with salt and pepper, and quickly cook on no-stick cast iron pan at medium heat.
  2. 2. Divide eggs into 4 and place eggs on each of 4 tortillas.
  3. 3. Add 1/4th of refried beans, red pepper, and veggie sausage to the length of each tortilla.
  4. 4. Sprinkle with Jalapeno Jack or Cheddar Cheese.
  5. 5. Roll up tortilla.
  6. 6. Using the same pan that the eggs were cooked in, toast the rolled tortilla on medium heat, seam side down to start, covered with lid. Turn to toast on multiple sides until golden brown.

Beautiful Breakfasts

As much as I would like to negate this, the plates used matter. Colour is proven to affect appetite and it's said often - we eat first with our eyes. Consider upgrading your plates.


If you can use Jalapeno cheeses in this recipe, it kicks the flavour up a notch.


Time to Eat!

Glorious Morning Breakfast On The Patio
Glorious Morning Breakfast On The Patio

Are you on the run? This is a great little package to wrap in wax paper and a napkin, so you can eat as you go out the door. If you have the time to sit down, slice each burrito in half and serve on a bright plate with strawberry or orange slices, utensils, and a Mexican Hot Chocolate. These can be made ahead and warmed in the microwave - be sure to refrigerate immediately after cooking and use within the day.

We are all told that breakfast is such an important part of the day. It's really important to eat something so as to break the fast that occurs over night. But in the June 2012 O Magazine (Oprah) I read that breakfast doesn't have to be a huge meal, it just has to be something (and including protein is nutritionally significant). Let us know about breakfast in your house. Do you like to sit down with family? Do you gobble in the car? Are you standing at the bus stop with a coffee? Do you feed the kids in the backseat as you drive to school?

C'mon - tell me about your own breakfast adventures. Do you cook?

      @Johanna Eisler: I LOVE your coffee house! What a fun place to visit.

      Thank you for jumping into my burrito recipe. It`s a great way to make breakfast, even if you`re not vegetarian. I will fall back on this recipe on the days when I run out of breakfast ideas for my meat-chomping crowd, and they love it!

      I'll have the breakfast pictured right above my comment - it looks wonderful. I love breakfast burritos! Their contents are limited only by your imagination - or what you have in the fridge. Nice lens!

      P.S. Hop on over to the Coffee House and tell the barista you want TEA. It's available upon request. ;)

      @Sylvestermouse: Well, if you're a mouse you'll love it! I am not vegetarian, either. It used to be that the word vegetarian conjured up images of meatless stew (for me, at least). The whole vegetarian world has transformed so much that it is enticing for the likes of us to incorporate vegetarian meals into our week. Go figure? ;)

      @TaraWojt: Hee hee - I am a meet-eater, too. But I really like meatless alternatives as well. This is really an alternative to using chorizo in eggs.

      I'm the cook in our home. My quick breakfast is almond butter spread on organic whole wheat toast plus a banana. It's quick and tasty. Thank you for publishing this lens.
