Recipe for a delicious Breakfast Burrito filled with Mediterranean tofu scramble, avocado, salad, tomatoes and bell pepper. It’s such a delicious and filling breakfast!
Breakfast Burritos are one of my favorite breakfast/brunch recipes – everything you love for breakfast stuffed in a warm wheat tortilla. What could be better?!
For this Breakfast Burrito, I’ve used my Mediterranean Tofu Scramble recipe. Of course, you could use a simple basic tofu scramble too, but I love the added saltiness of the sun-dried tomatoes and olives in this Burrito. It goes so well with the avocado, bell pepper, salad and cherry tomatoes.
The Key Ingredient: Kala Namak
The key ingredient for the tofu scramble filling is KALA NAMAK. If you don’t have kala namak sitting in your spice cabinet already, I highly recommend getting Kala Namak asap. It is a Himalayan Black Salt and due to its high sulfur content, it’s perfect for all dishes that profit from an “eggy” taste and smell. And what would be a more perfect use for the salt than in tofu scramble?

- Heat the canola oil in large pan and scramble the tofu with your hands or use a fork to do so before adding it to the pan.
- Add the curry powder, turmeric and kala namak. Mix well, so the tofu gets an even yellow color.

- Add the small chopped sun-dried tomatoes, olives and basil to the pan, heat it for about 2-3 minutes until hot.

- Assembly time! Place a few salad leaves on the tortilla, add the bell pepper, avocado cubes, halved cherry tomatoes and mediterranean tofu scramble.
- Fold in the sides and roll it in, then put it in an electric contact griller (or heat in a pan) to seal the edges. Cut in half & enjoy!
