Vegetarian Burritos!

Shauna posting to empty_plates made me realize that I finally had something to contribute!


Serves 3-4

What you'll need:


Soft flour tortillas/wraps
1 package firm tofu (crumbled -- by hand)
1 jalapeño pepper (finely chopped, and de-seeded to reduce heat if desired)
1 large can black beans
1 yellow/white onion (chopped)
2 tomatoes (chopped)
cheddar cheese (grated)
cilantro (finely chopped)
sour cream
1 avocado (chopped)
Extra virgin olive oil


Potato masher
Large pan
Serving spoon
Plates, etc

What to do:

With a bit of oil, sauté the onions and jalapeño pepper in large pan. Once the onions brown, add in the can of beans (drained & washed), and crumbled tofu. Mash the contents of the pan with the potato masher until the mix resembles a paste (but it's not necessary to blend everything completely). Set to simmer for about 5-10 minutes, or until the mixture is adequately hot/cooked.

On a flour tortilla, add a few scoops of the bean/tofu mixture, then add chopped avocado, tomatoes, cilantro and grated cheese as desired. Top with a dollop or two of sour cream and salsa. Wrap it up and serve!

Sorry no pictures :( I totally spaced when we were making it!
