1. Ultimate Vegan Burrito
If you’re wanting something packed with flavorful veggies, look no further.
You don’t have to load in meat to make a magnificent burrito!
From the roasted bell peppers to the seasoned black beans, this burrito has it all.
Smashed avocado and Mexican rice take this burrito to the next level, too.
On occasion, some chopped lettuce, pickled jalapenos, and cilantro make great additions too. Or, give one of their delicious sauces a try!
2. Vegan Mushroom Burritos
Mushrooms are an awesome substitute for meat, especially in burritos.
Plus, these burritos are quick to make for dinner in a hurry.
The mushrooms will soak up spice flavors well and have a similar consistency to meat.
Say adios to boring ole bean burritos with this recipe!
To make this recipe in a pinch, use leftover rice.
Simply saute the mushrooms and onions, season your rice and beans, and voila!
3. Easy Refried Bean Burrito
Okay, sorry about what I said about bean burritos.
They definitely have a time and a place, especially with a busy schedule!
For this recipe, you can make your own refried beans, or use a can from the store!
Just pile in the shredded dairy-free cheese and beans, and pan-fry your burrito.
Plus, vegan cheese has come a long way over the last decade.
Now, you can mimic that perfectly melted creamy refried bean and cheese burrito you’re craving!
4. Vegan Cheesy Potato Burritos
If you’re eating vegan on a budget, this is a great recipe to have on hand. It’s fast, filling, and frugal to boot!
The bulk of your burrito will be filled with potato chunks and cilantro lime rice.
Then, add a scoop of vegan nacho cheese and roll up your new favorite lunch.
Be sure to season the potatoes to flavor while you’re pan-frying them.
This is the perfect place to get that “taco” flavor without the meat!
5. Best Vegan Breakfast Burritos
I know what you’re thinking: how on earth do you make a breakfast burrito vegan?
With a little bit of tofu, a special sauce, and extra veggies, of course!
You need to make the tofu scramble in a frying pan, by making the secret sauce.
This will give that “egg-like” consistency to your tofu before adding to the burritos.
Pan fry potatoes, add in the tofu scramble, and top it with pico de gallo.
For extra flavor, this recipe is great with roasted bell peppers and onions, too!
6. Vegan Black Bean Burrito
If you’ve ever thought restaurant burritos are better than at home, try this recipe!
I’m a firm believer that a little crisp on the tortilla makes the world of difference.
This burrito is loaded with beans, tomatoes, corn, potatoes, and rice.
Top that with some guacamole and vegan cheese for extra flavor in every bite!
Once you’ve wrapped all that goodness up into a tortilla, pan-sear it until it’s browned.
Crisping up the tortilla adds an extra touch for the perfect vegan burrito.
7. Southwest Tofu Burrito
This list would be incomplete without featuring a tasty Southwestern tofu burrito!
Full of flavor and veggies, it’s protein-packed and delicious, too!
Start by crumbling a block of extra-firm tofu and seasoning it with taco seasoning.
Then, warm the tofu and beans while the rice is cooking.
Load up your tortillas with the rice, beans, and tofu.
Then, top it all off with salsa, avocado, and any of your favorite burrito fixings.
8. Chipotle Vegan Burrito with Cilantro Lime Rice
Something I love about Chipotle is how delicious their veggie burritos are.
Make your own burrito at home and mimic that flavor on a budget!
To make this burrito, you’ll need rice, beans, pico, avocado, and a special secret sauce.
I also like to make some sauteed peppers and onions to add to the mix.
The spicy sauce is a delicious addition to these burritos. It’s made with vegan sour cream and mayo and a bit of hot sauce.
9. Sheet Pan Vegan Chick’n Burritos
Chicken burritos have a whole vibe that can’t be forgotten.
If you prepare tofu just right, you’ll never know it’s not chicken!
To get the right consistency, you’ll need to press the tofu to remove excess water.
Then, just season the tofu and add to a sheet pan with bell peppers and roast!
While the chicken is amazing enough on its own, feel free to add more to your burrito.
Guacamole, rice, and beans are some of my favorite additions!
10. “Beefy” Vegan Burritos
Is it just me, or has eating vegan gotten so much easier?
Long gone are the days of boring salads for vegan eaters!
These “beefy” burritos feature crumbled seitan seasoned and sauteed with onions.
Layer refried beans, seitan, and vegan cheese into your favorite tortillas.
Of course, as with any burrito, you can add or omit to fit your flavor.
Bell peppers, lettuce, and pico de gallo are all welcome additions!
