This recipe is straight from the pages of The Blossom Cookbook by the owners of Blossom restaurant in New York City. If you can't make it out to NYC, you can now enjoy some of their recipes in the comfort of your own home.

It was really hard to choose just one recipe to share, but I ultimately decided on this breakfast burrito. A lot of newbie vegans don't know what to make for breakfast and I get asked a lot about it.
Vegan Breakfast Burrito Ingredients
This is what you'll need to make this recipe with a few notes and substitute ideas:
- Tofu - extra firm or firm would be the best choice.
- Ground turmeric - will add a golden color and a subtle earthy flavor.
- Scallions - chives are a nice replacement.
- Red bell pepper - any color will work here.
- Black beans - any variety will work here.
- Brown rice - any variety of rice will work or you can try quinoa.
- Vegan butter - you can replace this with oil if preferred.
- Vegan sausage - I prefer Field Roast vegan sausage, but any plant-based sausage will work.
- Tortillas - for a hearty-sized burrito, the large tortillas will work the best.
- Avocado - if you don't like avocado, you can add a handful of fresh leafy greens.
Make Ahead Tips
This vegan breakfast burrito is totally doable for busy mornings. You can prepare the filling the night before, and warm it up the next morning, then wrap it up with fresh avocado. It will literally take you under 10 minutes to make it this way.
If you're super pressed for time, you can assemble the entire burrito the night before, and warm it up in the oven (I would leave the avocado out). Yep, it's totally portable and you can take it out the door with you.
