Cheap & Easy Vegan Breakfast Burrito Bowl Recipe
Vegan breakfast burritos are the king of mornings! Picture this: “cheezy” tofu scramble, crispy potato wedges, and beans piled high under mountains of guac. Oh, and we also turned it into a giant vegan breakfast burrito bowl.. Now we’re talkin’!
Ever since my post on Living Vegan on a Budget, I’ve had people reach out with awesome questions/requests!
It is my goal to convince as many as possible that vegan living on a budget is 100% possible.. It’s fantastic to have this kind of response!
Now readers are asking for vegan budget recipes with prices.. Ask and ye’ shall receive! 🙌 Don’t we all love real-world examples of thriving on a vegan budget?
That being said, this recipe is amazing (whether you’re on a budget or not!). This proves how deliciously flavorful living on a vegan budget can be.
Cheap & Easy-As-Hell Vegan Breakfast Burrito Bowls for Everyone!
What’s the real story?
You’d never guess, but the thought of a breakfast burrito gagged me once upon a time.. I hated eggs, so the non-vegan version turned me off for years! (Why did I wait so long to try tofu scramble!?)
Needless to say, I’ve been in love with vegan breakfast burritos since I took my first bite. It’s something about the combination of salsa and fantastic tofu scramble that makes me weak-in-the-knees!
Years later, I’ve finally perfected Tofu Scramble at home.. I don’t have time for bland sh*t! Seriously, though! Once you know how, tofu scramble is addictive to make.
Now, since I’m promoting this vegan breakfast burrito bowl as “budget-friendly”, let’s break the ingredients down by price!
- Potatoes cost $.48
- Dinosaur Kale cost $.49
- Tofu Cost $.66
- Bulk Pinto Beans cost $.82
- Avocado cost $.33
- Tomato cost $.53
- Tortilla Cost $1.30
That means, per serving, this recipe costs only $4.61! Also, that’s with almost completely organic ingredients.. Don’t care about organic? Yours will be even cheaper! 😀
Also, you might be wondering why I didn’t include spices on the price list.
- First, I keep these stocked all the time, so it’s not fair to say I bought it for this recipe alone.
- Second, I buy spices for cheap in bulk (even organic!), so the cost is very insignificant for how much we’re using.
- Lastly, you can always work with what you have access to! I recently found this (hilariously accurate) quote:
Hot sauce covers the taste of poverty
So, What Are You Waiting For!?
Put on some salsa music, grab some tortilla chips, and fiesta like there’s no tomorrow! No one’s judging your lack of spice tolerance, I promise 😉
