For a flavor-packed vegan breakfast that you can take on the go, look no further than these fiesta tofu breakfast wraps. Crumbled and seasoned extra firm tofu is sautéed with garlic and red bell pepper then stuffed in a whole wheat wrap along with creamy avocado and fresh greens. Healthy, easy, and ready in less than 20 minutes. It can also be prepped in advance for the ultimate grab-and-go breakfast!
This month’s Recipe Redux Challenge was all about going savory for the most important meal of the day (and just in time for back to school):
The trend of protein-packed breakfasts is catching on…and back-to-school time is looming. This month, show us new healthy takes on eating savory or dinner-inspired dishes for breakfast. Think egg burritos, beans and rice, or maybe even pasta?!
While I more of a sweet breakfast person, it’s nice to change things up from time-to-time. However, usually savory breakfast = eggs, and I don’t know about you but I can get sick of eggs real quick. Tofu is a healthy, versatile protein option that makes for a killer breakfast wrap filler. In addition to being high in protein (key for keeping you full and focused during class or work), tofu is an excellent source of iron and calcium. To make this a balanced breakfast, you have your veggies (avocado, red bell pepper, and mixed greens) and a whole grain thanks to the wrap.
While delicious as-is, feel free to bump up the flavor even more with cheese (vegan or non-vegan based on personal preference) and/or hot sauce. Bry also mentioned adding grilled onion for any of you onion fans out there.
To make these a quick grab-and-go breakfast, feel free to make a batch and store in the freezer then reheat on your way out the door in the morning.
I may be one of the few people who really misses back-to-school. Seriously, it was my favorite time of year as I had a nerdy love for school supplies and there was something so exciting about figuring out which of your friends would be in your classes that year.
So here’s a toast to starting the school year off with the right nourishment!

Tofu scrambles are great, and you made them even better by making them into wraps! 🙂
Glad you like the recipe Karman! Everything tastes better in a wrap 😉
