Prep Time: 20 mins

Cook Time: 20 mins

Level: Easy



14 oz Extra Firm Tofu

1 tbsp Olive Oil

1 tbsp Lemon Juice

1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast

1 tsp Turmeric

½ tsp Pepper

¼ tsp Salt


1 tbsp Olive Oil

1 Medium Red Bell Pepper, diced

1 Medium Red Onion, diced

1  15.5 oz can Black Beans, drained and rinsed

1  15.5 oz can Whole Kernel Corn, drained and rinsed

1 - 1 ½  tsp Adobo Seasoning


5 Tortilla Wraps

½ cup Salsa



  1. Press your tofu by placing it between two layers of paper towels. Place a heavy-weighted pan or cutting board over the top layer of paper towel. Allow the tofu to sit like this for ~15 minutes. 
  2. While tofu is pressing, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. 
  3. Saute red pepper and onion until fragrant and tender, about 7 minutes.
  4. Add black beans, corn and adobo seasoning to the frying pan. Cook until black beans and corn are warm; about another 4 minutes. Set veggie mixture aside.
  5. Crumble pressed tofu into a small bowl. Add olive oil, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, turmeric and pepper to the bowl. Mix well.
  6. In the same pan used to cook the veggie mixture, fry the tofu scramble until lightly crisped and browned.
  7. Lay tortillas on the countertop or another flat surface. Spread 2 tbsp of salsa down the middle of each wrap. Add ⅕ of veggie mixture and tofu scramble to the center of each tortilla. Fold tortilla into a tight burrito. Start by folding in the two ends of the tortilla over the filling followed by the top and bottom of the tortilla so that filling is completely covered.
  8. If eating now, place one burrito at a time into the frying pan, seam side down, to crisp. Gently flip the burrito to crisp the top. Serve warm with extra salsa!
  9. If saving for later, wrap burritos in tin foil and store in the fridge or in a freezer safe bag in the freezer. To reheat, warm the oven to 350℉ and bake in tin foil for 20-30 minutes.
