This is an excellent way to start the day! The best part is that it includes our “Three Brothers Guacamole”. We’ve been experimenting with Trader Joes Brown Rice Tortillas (they come with paper liners between each piece to help prevent sticking and tearing!) This morning decided to use them as burrito wraps with pretty good success!
Vegetarian Breakfast Burrito – Serves two.
2 Brown Rice Wraps
1 cup grated Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese
1 cup refried beans (Annie’s are excellent if you don’t take the time to make your own
1 cup guacamole
½ cup diced onions
½ cup tomato salsa
olive oil for sautéing
salt and pepper to taste
Three Brothers Guacamole
Hand-mash (using a fork) in a small bowl or blend in a food processor the following:
1 large ripe avocado – diced or thinly sliced
juice of ½ a lime (it’s easier to juice a lime if you’ve rolled it to soften before cutting.)
1/8 cup minced fresh cilantro (none or more to taste)
1/8 cup minced or grated fresh onion
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic- minced or pressed through a garlic press
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cumin powder (more to taste)
1/8 teaspoon Tabasco or another pepper sauce
fresh ground pepper to taste
- Boil water in a pan large enough to accommodate a large steamer.
- Whisk the eggs together in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper
- Saute the onions in a little olive oil (1-2 teaspoons) in a small frying pan. Set aside in a small bowl.
- Heat the beans in the same frying pan. Set aside in a small bowl.
- Add a little more olive oil to the frying pan and scramble the eggs over a medium heat. Whatever leftover beans are in pan will mix into the eggs. When just about cooked, turn off the heat.
- Steam the tortillas, one at a time to prevent sticking, for 30 seconds until soft and pliable. Immediately transfer to plates.
- Divide the eggs, beans, cheese, and guacamole between the two tortillas. Fold up the sides and bottom. Secure with a toothpick if necessary. Put a small “side” of salsa on each plate and garnish with extra leaves of cilantro.
- Put all the ingredients into a food processor. Pulse 8-10 times to distribute the ingredients.
- Scrape down the sides and process for 8-10 seconds until blended, but still slightly chunky.
- Taste and adjust salt, citrus, cumin, and/or spiciness.
Put all the ingredients into a small bowl and hand mash using two forks.
