Breakfast Burritos + GIVEAWAY!

Sunday morning at my house is the biggest breakfast day of the week.  Most other mornings typically consist of a boring selection of peanut butter toast, fruit, instant oatmeal, an occasional smoothie, granola bar, or quite frankly... coffee and more coffee!! But there's something about Sunday mornings for us that just scream pancakes, french toast, waffles, scrambles and today... breakfast burritos!

So whats in it?  Hash browns, tofu scramble (recipe below), avocado and salsa (we omit for kids).  Now don't get that judgey-before-you-try-it face.  Tofu scramble has been a staple in our former egg scramble home for years.  And after switching, every time my husband orders scrambled eggs at a restaurant, he always comments on how rich they taste.

Ingredients for Tofu Scramble
1 12oz block extra firm organic tofu
1 package Fantastic World Foods Tofu Scrambler seasoning mix... Giveaway details below!!!!!
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 Tb nutritional yeast
1 Tb olive oil or 1 Tb vegan butter or 1/4 cup vegetable stock or 1/4 cup water (for sauteing)
Your favorite scramble add-ins.
I used:  
1/3 cup diced onion, 1/2 cup diced bell pepper, 5 thinly sliced large white mushrooms

This seasoning mix is awesome! Just mix with crumbled tofu and cook!  The addition of salt, onion powder and nutritional yeast in my recipe is optional, but I like a little more flavor than the seasoning alone (and so does my family).

 **Giveaway Details**  
To qualify for a free packet of Fantastic Farms Tofu Scrambler Mix, all you have to do is "LIKE" this post on Green Apple Baby's facebook page.  I will put all names in a basket and draw a winner at the end of the day.  Good Luck!!

First, drain and wrap the block of tofu in paper towels or a dish towel to soak up more of the water.  While the tofu is wrapped, dice onion, bell pepper and mushroom (or the mix-in's of your choice).  Warm a saute pan over medium heat and a add the cooking liquid of your choice.  Add your veggies and cook 5-6 minutes. 
While the veggies are cooking, unwrap tofu and crumble (using your hands) into a bowl.  Add seasoning packet and mix together well.  Add to the saute pan and mix with veggies.  Add the nutritional yeast, onion powder and salt.  Press down using your spatula to flatten out entire mix and allow to cook out more of the water.  After 3 minutes, flip the tofu over, pat back down and cook another 3 minutes. 

Assemble your burritos!  note: I used the Simply Potatoes brand for my hash browns and followed instructions on the package.
