These incredibly delicious vegan breakfast burritos are made with tofu cooked in homemade enchilada creamy cashew sauce (that tastes like vegan queso.)

Paired with a crispy potato hash, this recipe is packed full of so much flavor! I cannot express how incredible this recipe is, but just read the comments below and they speak for themselves!

Tvegan breakfast burrito

One of my most popular vegan recipes is my Simple Vegan Breakfast Hash.

Several of you commented how hard it was to find vegan breakfast options that weren’t smoothies or oatmeal.

While I love smoothies and oatmeal, everybody deserves to have some savory breakfast deliciousness in their lives!

Enter the best vegan breakfast burritos ever: freezer friendly, packed full of huge flavor, and even gluten free if you use gluten free tortillas.

A good breakfast burrito is packed full of flavor and easily freezable, and this vegan breakfast burrito does not disappoint.These are so great for busy mornings!

How to make this vegan breakfast burrito

There are only two components of this burrito: the scrambled tofu and the vegan breakfast hash. The homemade sauce for the tofu is so creamy and flavorful that you don’t even need condiments.

You can your burrito in salsa if you want, but I just eat mine plain! Even my husband who dips about everything in sour cream or salsa ate these vegan burritos as is.

cashew enchilada sauce

This sauce is what we are cooking the tofu in. All you’ll need is: enchilada sauce, roasted cashews, salsa, and nutritional yeast. Mix it all up in your high speed blender until smooth.

Do you need to soak the cashews first?

No. Since they are roasted instead of raw, they will blend smoothly. Since the cashews are roasted instead of raw, you can just blend them right up!

cashew enchilada sauce

It basically tastes like a velveety smooth vegan queso dip.

In fact, I’m going to have to create a vegan queso dip based off of this sauce, because the flavor is just CRAZY good.

I use a similar sauce in my vegan quesadillas and it is amazing!

scrambled tofu

Once you scramble the tofu, add the sauce and cook for around 10-15 minutes, or until it’s a little less mushy. The tofu will look a little like a buffalo dip texture almost.

That sounds like a weird way to describe it, but that is what it looks like to me!

breakfast hash

Once your hash and tofu are done cooking, chop up some fresh cilantro and you are ready to start assembling your burritos!

On each tortilla, add a heaping of tofu, and follow it up with fresh cilantro. Top with a big scoop of crispy amazing hash, roll it up, and you’re ready to eat!

I’m one of those people who needs to have texture when I’m eating. The tofu is soft in this recipe, so the crunch of the roasted potatoes adds extra chewiness and texture.

The textures play off each other so well and it ends up being the perfect bite!

I mean just look at all that roasted goodness! Those crispy edges on the hash is where all that crazy flavor comes from. Slow roasted potatoes are the best kind of potatoes!

I can’t lie, I am absolutely drooling over my keyboard right now. I had one of these for breakfast to make sure that they froze well (anything in the name of recipe testing) and I am already craving another one!

This vegan breakfast burrito is so full of protein that I was full for hours after just one. These are perfect for a protein packed breakfast that you can prep ahead and freeze for busy mornings.

I really can’t do the flavor justice by my words.

It has SO much flavor that it is just insane.

I seriously could eat these every morning and never get sick of them!

Reviews on these vegan breakfast burritos

Here are just some of the comments I have gotten so far. If you try it, be sure to leave me a comment on the post!

Lynz: “DUDE. I just tried these the other day and oh my word let me just say that I will be reusing this recipe over and over because I don’t think I will ever get tired of these! Thanks so much!”

Becky: “You are right! These are the best breakfast burritos!The hash and the sauce were both yummy on their own and I was afraid I would taste so much of them there would not be enough to put together. But – assembled- they are simply heavenly!!

Jaclyn: “Wow!!! These were AMAZING! It takes time to roast the potatoes then cook the tofu mixture but sooooo worth it and the bonus is, I have two burritos that were leftover and now in the freezer for a quick weekday breakfast!

breakfast

This recipe makes 8 very large burritos.

We had some for dinner after I tested this recipe, and I froze the remainder of them for easy breakfasts.

meal prep vegan breakfast

Just wrap the prepared burritos in tin foil, and place in a ziploc bag in the freezer.

I fit about 4 burritos per gallon sized ziploc bag.

meal prep recipe

I heated mine up for around 4 minutes in the microwave. Depending on your microwave, it should heat in around 2-4 minutes.

frozen vegan breakfast burritos

The verdict? Just as good the next day from frozen.

These are literally the best breakfast burritos I have ever eaten!

vegan breakfast burrito with foil

That is really saying something, as I am a former breakfast burrito addict.

For awhile last year, I was addicted to a frozen breakfast burrito from the store that was also vegan.

The difference? I had to absolutely drown it in hot sauce or I didn’t care for the flavor plain. These homemade vegan breakfast burritos NEED NO HELP. They are perfect as is!

To make this stretch for more burritos, use smaller tortilla shells and it will yield more medium sized burritos. You can use either whole wheat, regular, or gluten free tortillas.

  1. Made these this morning for breakfast. Very good. Instead of making these and freezing them, I just left the filling in the fridge and I’ll make them the next few mornings. I could see adding a smattering of black beans. My husband thought they were a tad sweet (probably from the cashews) so he wants me to add a little more heat next time. Yum!

  2. Lordy, this was so good! I am not vegan but a recent trip with one inspired me to try this. The only thing I did differently was add soy chorizo. My mind (& my husbands) is blown! The queso alone was so delicious but all together it was a flavor explosion!

  3. I don’t review recipes a lot, but feel this one deserves it. I come back to this over and over again. They really are SO good!! I make them in big batches and then freeze them wrapped up individually, as it’s summer now I’ve taken to bringing them camping and putting them over the fire for a healthy, delicious, filling, EASY camping breakfast. My husband requests them and they just are so yummy!

  4. I’m thinking about making these ahead of time and taking them on a flight for a protein packed breakfast on the go. I don’t plan to eat them right away, and wont be able to microwave them. Do you think they’d work best frozen and then just left to defrost for a few hours? Or should I make them and leave them in the fridge instead? Thanks! xx

  5. I’m not vegan yet plan to make it for son so did a test run for flavor…so good! Used my canned salsa, so nice kick overall. Definitely adding to my list to make again! Excellent!

  6. Hands down the BEST breakfast burrito! You were right! Often I find vegan breakfast burritos flavorless, too mushy, or dry. I was also nervous about microwaving but it was just as good as fresh!

    If I have a minute to spare I like to heat up a skillet and sear the seam of the tortilla after microwaving!

    Fantastic recipe that I plan to come back to many times! Thank you for sharing!
