Vegan Breakfast Burritos

Flavor-packed meatless vegan breakfast burritors from Dana Shultz’s new cookbook, Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking.

One of my favorite parts about Spring is it’s cookbook season! …When all the new and beautiful baby cookbooks are born. As you probably know, a huge round of cookbooks is published each April-May, an event I look forward to every year. Relaxing on the couch in the evening with a glass of wine and a wonderful cookbook is one of my favorite activities, and I absolutely love when one of my fellow blogger friends releases a new book.

Dana Shultz from the blog, Minimalist Baker, released her cookbook, Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking, on April 26, 2016, and you guys…this is serious business. It includes 101 entirely plant-based recipes that are also gluten-free, easy to prepare, and of course, delicious.  I met Dana and her husband, John, back when I visited Bob’s Red Mill up in Portland last year. The two make an amazing, inspiring team with so much talent and are super generous with advice and information on blogging. I’m always thrilled to meet other bloggers and am always blown away when they’re as humble and fun to spend time with as Dana and John.

Back to the issue at hand: das cookbook.

Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking Cookbook

If you’re familiar with Dana, you know she takes a minimalistic (yet super healthful and tasty) approach to cooking – her recipes typically require only 30 minutes of time, OR 10 ingredients or less, OR one pot/pan to prepare. I mean…that’s my type of cooking! The cookbook follows suit, dishing up a plethora of mouth-watering vibrant meals that anyone can prepare!  The book is a no-fuss approach to cooking for anyone who loves delicious food that happens to be healthful. Dana provides resources at the beginning of the book for preparing dairy-free (and vegan) alternatives, such as coconut whipped cream, flax eggs, etc., to help those along who are new to vegan cooking.

A mega win. Even if you’re a meat eater like me, you’ll get a ton out of this cookbook, as Dana’s a whiz at infusing her recipes with flavor and intrigue. Those who are vegetarian, vegan, looking to add more vegetables to your diet, and/or those who love eating healthy, this cookbook is right for you!

I’ve gone through the cookbook a few times cover-to-cover, and am always finding new recipes I want to try. Because breakfast is a big event in my house, I decided to make the Vegan Breakfast Burritos.

I know what you’re thinking. Breakfast burritos without eggs? Or bacon? Or cheese? You guys, you’ll just have to take a flying leap out of the trust tree, because this thing just works. With home fries (skillet-cooked potatoes), rice, beans, and a guac/slaw situation, these burritos turn out fabulously flavorful and you won’t even miss the meat yoooou betcha! We make breakfast burritos on the reg in my house and these – in all their vegan glory – are some of the best we’ve had!

    I really enjoyed making this burrito. I am a vegan and I am still trying to get my boyfriend to transition from a vegetarian to vegan. But his biggest complaint is that he doesn’t have that many breakfast options. So when he ate this burrito he was excited about the potential of finding great tasting satiating options.
