Vegan Burrito Recipe

Vegan Burrito Recipe

I didn't think I would get so much praise for a vegan recipe. In fact, I was waiting for the family reaction with a bit of hesitation. But it seems like we have a new favorite recipe - burrito with vegetables, a Mexican recipe made with what I had at hand.

The whole process is simple and fast, you just need to be a bit careful when shaping the burrito rolls. I recommend serving them immediately after frying. Don't make too many beforehand - the tortillas will soften and lose their crunchiness.

You can change the vegetables in the mixture as you like. I was guided by color and children's preferences. The same with the sauce used for seasoning the vegetables and the tortillas, you can modify as you like. For extra nutrients, I spread the tortillas with vegetable bean paste and vegetable lentil paste.


Tortilla wraps
4 pieces
choose larger tortillas, so you can roll them
Vegan lentil patee
100 g
Red peppers
1 piece
Red cabbage
100 g
4 pieces
4 leaves
50 g
a few leaves
1 piece
0.5 pieces
0.5 tsp
plus a little ground black pepper
Canned corn
150 g
Vegetable oil
1 tbsp

Step by step


Wash well all vegetables. Cut the red cabbage and the bell pepper into thin slices.

Dry the lettuce and spinach leaves with a paper towel.


You can slice the avocado and use it as such in the burrito. I preferred to mash it with a fork and turn into a kind of vegan sauce. I added the juice from half a lemon, salt and a little ground pepper to taste, I mixed well.


Spread each tortilla with lentil paste. I also combined it with bean paste.


On one side, place the lettuce leaf, a few slices of pepper.


Then, the sliced red cabbage. Spread over 1 tablespoon of avocado sauce, the one prepared above.


At the end, add 2-3 tablespoons of canned corn.

Try not to overload the tortillas. It will be difficult to roll up and they may break.


Start rolling the burrito up - fold the bottom side over the vegetables.


Tuck the lateral sides inwards.


Then keep rolling the burrito up.


Shape the other 3 burritos in the same way - I made one for each family member.


Heat the pan well and grease with a little oil.


Place burritos in the pan, first time, seam side down.

Cook over medium heat. Be careful, they will cook very fast, literally, in a few seconds, so don't go far.


Brown the burritos on all sides like this.


Once browned, cut the burrito rolls into halves.


Serve right away while hot - plain or with salsa sauce, with vegan or plain yogurt or any other sauce you like.

I like them with yogurt, it's a wonderful and cooling combination of sourness and crunchiness.
