last saturday i woke up absolutely starving! i debated about going out for breakfast, but then i thought, why do that when i could make something so much better at home. i was craving something warm and wonderful, something bursting with flavor, but also with a kick. the result was the best damn breakfast burrito i have ever had... hands down. it'll rock your world.
"best damn one skillet breakfast burrito
1 tube gimme lean sausage
4 white potatoes, peeled and julienned (larger julienne, if possible)
1 package super firm tofu (preferably Wild Wood)
1 red pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
2 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp turmeric
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
hot sauce (of your choice)
dairy free sour cream
start by heating a skillet and adding your 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp earth balance, potatoes and garlic. sprinkle a little salt and pepper and let brown on each side at 350 degrees. set in oven to keep warm in a separate pan.
in the same skillet, add 1 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 of the gimme lean sausage package. fry up until golden brown. add the red pepper flakes. set aside in same pan as the potatoes...be sure to keep i a warm oven.
again in the same skillet, add 1 tbsp olive oil, red pepper, onions. toss that around for about 5 minutes, then add your tofu (be sure to have broken into medium size pieces), garlic powder, turmeric and tamari. fry up until a golden color erupts. salt and pepper to taste.
in a damp towel, wrap a few flour tortillas and pop into either the oven for 5 minutes or into the microwave for 1 minute.
start building your burrito by layers...potatoes, then tofu scramble, then the mock sausage. throw on a little hot sauce, a dollop of the dairy free sour cream, fresh cilantro and WOW...you'll be one happy camper. (I packed mine so high, i could barely close it) of course, you can layer it however you see fit.
serve with a bloody mary...(coffee optional)
