Breakfast Burrito

Happy Mushroom Monday!

Now that Summer is finally (finally!) here, I’ve been loving quick to make and fuss free meals. This “Vegan Breakfast Burrito” is exactly that! What I love about this recipe is not only how quickly it comes together, but that it can be breakfast, lunch, or dinner! With that flexibility you know it will be added to the weekly rotation. ;)

Traditional breakfast burritos have eggs, bacon or sausage, and cheese. This dish will be plant based (or vegan) without dairy or animal products at all. That makes this recipe healthier and lighter but you won’t miss the satisfying flavor!

To substitute the smoky bacon or sausage I used my all time favorite and versatile ingredient: mushrooms. When you add a little soy sauce and liquid smoke to mushrooms they take on a smoky meat-like flavor that compliments this dish perfectly.

Black beans give this recipe even more nutrition with high amounts of fiber and protein. Fiber helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood and decrease the risk of heart disease. As a bonus, the fiber and protein work together to help you feel fuller longer.

Bell peppers contain several phytochemicals and carotenoids which are powerful antioxidants and contain anti-inflammatory benefits. A little known fact, one medium green bell pepper contains 159% DV of vitamin C! That’s more than an orange!

All these delicious veggies paired together make a fresh and delicious recipe that will be perfect breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Let’s get started!
