Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Servings: 2


For the Burrito:

  • 1/2 red onion chopped

  • 1 cup roma tomatoes chopped

  • ¼ Cup cilantro Chopped

  • 8 Tortillas

For the Potato Filling:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 1/2 lb potatoes cut into small pieces

  • 1tsp paprika

  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste

  • 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

For Scrambled Tofu Salad:

  • 1 block of extra firm Tofu

  • 1/3 cup veganaise

  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard

  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper powder

  • 2 green onions chopped

  • 1 tsp Chili powder

  • 1tsp Cumin powder

  • 1 tbsp lime juice

  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste

  • 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste


  • Press tofu for 20 minutes or leave in the tofu press and refrigerate overnight.

  • Combine 1tsp of oil, potato cubes, and potato seasonings in a bowl and mix until the potatoes are well-coated.

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the potato cubes to the hot pan and cook for about 7 minutes. Avoid stirring often, so that the potatoes can form a nice golden crust.

  • In a large bowl, crumble up the pressed tofu using your hands. Add the remaining ingredients for the scrambled tofu and stir well. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as necessary.

  • To assemble the burritos, top each tortilla with about a 1/2 cup of potatoes, followed by about a 1/2 cup of the scrambled tofu. Top with tomato, onions, and cilantro. Roll up the burritos and serve with extra tomato, cilantro, onions, a lime wedge, and a side of sliced avocado.

* To refrigerate leftover burritos, wrap in foil. These will stay good for about 2 to 3 days. You can also heat them up a bit in the microwave before serving.

Enjoy! 😋😉
