Cooking: Vegetarian Burritos

Hi lovely ladies (and gents)! For this very simply recipe, you will need:

  • 1 pkg of firm tofu, drained 
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onions 
  • 2 tbls chili powder 
  • 1/4 cup salsa 
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • 1/4 cup (1 oz.) cheese
  • 6 fajita-size tortillas (I used whole wheat)

Hmmm... doesn't look much like cottage cheese, does it?

Crumble tofu until it has the consistency of cottage cheese. 

Over medium heat, sauté tofu and onions in a nonstick skillet for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low; add chili powder and mix until the color is evenly distributed; heat about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Stir in salsa, cilantro (if you use some), and cheese.

At this point, I just got lazy and put everything in the micro-wave 

Place tortillas on a microwave-safe plate; heat according to package directions. Place 1/3 cup of tofu mixture in the center of each tortilla; fold into burritos.

Tadah! Fast, easy and delicious!

  5. Those look nice! I would like to mention that you may want to check that your cheese is free of enzymes/rennet. Otherwise it may not be vegetarian friendly! :)

  11. @Katie : I hope it will make you fall in love with vegetarian food, it worked with my boyfriend (:

    @Venus Loves Virgo: Great idea!

    @Vintage Makeup: I never knew that and I just searched the net for more info and seriously... YUCK?! How come I never knew that? Thank you so much for telling me!

    @Tali: Oh really? But they are super simple to make if you can't find some pre-made (:

  12. looks delicious! will give this a go. thanks for sharing gaby! :)

  13. I only recently found out myself! It can be a little difficult to find enzyme/rennet free cheese. They make all sorts of vegan cheese so that could be worth checking out! :) There are some non-vegan brands that will say "rennet free" on the package as well.

  14. Great Recipes! Looks delicious and yummy! Thanks for posting this!
    Love your recipes!
